Also the Aeronaut was a big hit at my work place with some of my fellow workers. They asked what was in the box and so I showed them and they were all mightily impressed.
Popping in to note my not so patient wait for a Synapse 25 and a few other small goodies. I travel at the end of June, which also happens to be the estimated arrival time of the Synapse. I ordered it hoping that it arrives early. I need some good luck so I can use my new backpack when I head out on my next trip. It's so hard to wait!
I'm struggling with a serious case of TBAS myself here. My first TB order has made it to the neighbouring country, and scheduled to arrive tomorrow, and only now am I getting really anxious. Will they call or will they not call before attempting delivery? Will I manage to be at home (they don't leave things by the door here like they do in the US)? If not, will they be able to reroute it to my work place? Called the local UPS today to tell them they need to call in order to get to my apartment but they said they can have nothing to do with my package until tomorrow when it's about to leave for delivery. So looking at an early morning alarm and hoping that I'll reach UPS customer service before they manage to do anything silly (come by the house without calling, find themselves locked outside the building and decide to just leave -- for example) and give them advice.
Can't wait for my Cafe Bags + Side Effect!
I have an aubergine SE on the way as well as a Smart Alec for MrDaisy - at which point I think he will overtake me in the TB bag competition - and he think's I'm the obsessed one....
Edit: Aaaand my TB shipment is being held up by customs while they calculate what kind of giant import duties they shall assign on it. Well, I knew that was going to happen so I'm prepared for it, but I wasn't prepared to wait another day(s) to get my hands on the bags!
Oh my, the TBAS has struck me too. Smart Alec plus couple of packing cubes (one WF small, one TS medium - I want space for laptop etc) and pouches (though neither of the Smart Alec pouches, am seeing if I can keep the outside slick for ease of handling) is now on order. To use as everyday work / laptop bag, plus single bag for short work trips away. Feels a little wrong to be excited about a bag.
I ordered a synapse 25 a few weeks ago and tomorrow is the big day. Can't wait for it to be in my hands......
I'm a long time lurker and I finally decided that it was time to make an appearance! Hello!
Anyway, I just placed my 3rd order in a week...I think I have a problem! But I will definitely be posting pictures of all of my TB goodies when this newest order arrives! It's supposed to be here on Friday...I'm so stoked!
I just ordered an aubergine Side Effect. Now, I must invoke patience. Until mid-July.
Nordic/Steel Synapse 25, appropriate sized cache with rails and wasabi snake charmer have been ordered. I'm wishing for instant gratification, but I have to be patient and wait. I'm not very good at being patient.
I am having a serious issue being patient while the new Checkpoint Flyer is rolled out....I *know* Tom wants to get it right. I not only respect that, but I applaud his dedication and insistence on perfection. In a nutshell, that's why I've been loyal to TB all these years. Still, patience has never been a virtue of mine. I feel like the kid in the backseat of the car on the long ride. Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Someone from the front seat is going to give me hell, but I can't help it.
Are we there yet?
snowbot, it is SOOOO worth the wait. I love mine!! Just hang on...
Thanks, Beau. Still wish I could stop fidgeting here in the back seat, though.
