I had not realized how much I actually carry on a daily basis until now...maybe I should cut back. On the other hand..."Be Prepared", no?

yeah... about that..

yeah my list wasn't complete... the one I posted on Mary Peed's journal... I should make a complete list sometime..

And be prepared is how boyscouts and girlscouts get into trouble! But luckily we are prepared.

I try to both be prepared and pack rather light. I don't have a whole lot of pockets, and don't want to print stuff through my clothes, so I try to carry stuff that has the most utility in a small space. For instance, my leatherman was handy, but I found I used the main knife blade on it 95% of the times I pulled it out... so I replaced it with a single-blade folder I can flick open with one hand, and wear clipped to my waistband inside my pants without even noticing it's there, even when sitting down.

I'd get a smaller laptop bag if I found one I liked. Especially for my non-work laptop (Eee 901).
