Sometimes I like to grab a backpack and not much else and head into the woods. I’m constantly on a mission to bring less crap with me each time I do and I recently read a great book on this very subject titles “The Ultimate Hikers gear Guide” . In it, the author suggests you bring just one “luxury item”… Something that’s not necessarily expensive but is certainly not essential for your survival. For me it’s usually my favorite binoculars or a camera.
On this topic what do you bring on the ship that’s kinda bulky and not necessary for your job but you haul it through the airports anyway?
P.S. For me it was my CD collection until the iPod came out. After that it was a personal laptop (but that soon became kinda essential to my work). Today it’s usually a big bulky camera.
