    Part 1 of 2: Photos of my new Empire Builder, o-rings, and a cool box doodle...

    Hey, All!

    Had some time this afternoon, so I'm dropping some pics of my new Empire Builder! I know everyone loves pics to help with their decision making process (I know I am obsessive about 'em), so here we go...!

    Here's the mandatory "what am I packing?" pic...

    And here is where it all disappears into the bag! Shot of the side profile as well...

    Now, I count six (!) o-rings on the bag. The little suckers are everywhere. I took pictures to prove it, and hung my keys off each one to demonstrate. Here's the first one, tucked into the right-hand zip pocket on the front flap. I'm guessing this will be my go-to key location...

    Could we have the packing list? I count 3 OPs, a computer, an ipad, a cayenne snake charmer, cell phone, notebook, glasses case, manila folder, water bottle, and what looks like a lunch pack?

    I think it's amazing what you can stuff into the bag!

    I forgot the packing list! Here's what I have going in:

    - Lenovo Thinkpad T420 w/ Body Glove sleeve
    - iPad w/ apple case
    - Leather folio (about 1/2" thick)
    - 3 organizer pouches
    - Snake charmer w/ assorted power bricks and chargers
    - A couple of file folders
    - 2 eyeglass/sunglasses cases
    - Camelback water bottle
    - lunch bag

    I was pretty shocked when I loaded it up myself!

    Awesome photos, MagicTiki. Is it okay if I include them in our Flickr sets?
