Part I: look at all this crap
I just got back from my conference in St. Louis. It was a good time, but exhausting. (How exhausting? So exhausting that I was too tired to arrange a meet-up with Ed [AVService], even though he very nicely offered to get together. I know. Lame.)
Backpack had asked me to show what took on my trip, so here's a little photo essay, showcasing my mad iPhone skillz, natch.
We rolled into town in early evening.
Before going to dinner, I had some time to get my stuff unpacked. I didn't take photos of this stuff, but I had my Aeronaut and Mrs B (who was also attending the conference) had the WF. Because it was supposed to be hot, I packed extra shirts. It ended up being not as hot as I had predicted, so I didn't use all the stuff I brought. For a 5-day trip I packed about 7 days worth of clothes and way too many freaking shoes. Anyway, once I put that stuff away, I was able to unpack my mobile office, which I was transporting in my Smart Alec.
I had put into my Freudian Slip a pen, pencil, iPad stand, little notebook, conference registration, some papers, and some catalogues.
Here are the contents unpacked.
I also had my 15" MBP in a third-party sleeve, an iPad with Miniot cover in a Cache, a wireless keyboard in third-party sleeve, and a snake charmer with cables and power bricks.
A gazillion organizer pouches with bits and bobs.
Like Italian kleenex.
I also had my MCB with some extras, all of which fit in the SA: sunglasses in butt-ugly case, three books, and a Moleskine notebook.
Stay tuned! More pics in the next post!
