Yesterday, I bought a tripod for my iPhone. Don’t worry, it’s small and light. And, it should help me get more pictures from the trail.
I’m done buying stuff, well almost. After talking with a good friend I became convinced it would be worth it to get a lighter “bucket”. This one weighs a third of the old one; I saved almost 2 ounces (57 grams). I wouldn’t go backpacking without one of these, they save a ton of trips to get water.
Todays featured equipment: first aid kit.
The kit includes: A sil-nylon bag, safety pins, duct tape, Chap Stick, nail clipper, Breathe-rite strips, Dermabond, assorted Band-Aids / butterflies, and moleskin. Meds include daily prescription meds in individual packets; supplies of Tylenol, Naprosyn, Immodium-AD, Benadryl, and extra thyroid hormone (if I get separated from my bounce box). Everything fits in the bag except the duct tape and Rx meds.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction. – Albert Einstein
