In 06, I had to make a cross country move from the coolest place in the U.S west coast to the coolest place in the US east coast.
It started in late 05 when my husband took the job and I was left with my cat and my two laptops.
Stuff needed to be deatl with both in the west and east coast, the first to donate and the second to find new, including cars.
I needed to find the mean of carrying my two iBooks of different generations. Because of previous experiences with shoulder bags, I needed a backpack, one that was lightweight and very strong.
I found a link to Tom Bihn Inc, emailed Wonderful Darcy several times and placed my Steel Brain Bag Order.
The next few months were such a wirlwind of packing, sorting, living on the west coast in east coast time so that I could say good morning and good evening to my husband.
The Brain Bag gave me a hard time empty but performed perfectly when loaded with a lot of gear.
It's first test was the day of the big move, at the airport, with our scaredy lovely cat, first and alas last trip to a crowded airport.
Miraculously, she froze,
I took care of the laptops in their Monolith and Soft Cell (ancestors of the Vertical Brain Cell and Cache) without the use of any brain cells on my part, as I was worried sick about our beloved cat bolting.
On arrival, after lettng my husband deplane first with the cat, get the car and settle her at the new place , it was a direct flight for the comfort of our cat to whom we bought a seat, so she could have the window under seat.
I checked out the humongous amount of stuff that was checked in, ended up with one very full big utility cart like those used in home improvement stores.
A pain, but my Brain Bag was sitting on my shoulders, invisible and very efficient.
