I am happier than a kid at Christmas!

First, thanks to the TB Crew! I put in an order on Tuesday and by Thursday it arrived. Seriously, you rock.

Even though it arrived Thursday, I had to wait until today to get it. I live in an apt that the packages get delivered to the office and I work the same hours they are open so I have to wait until a day off (or call in sick which I ALMOST did - bag fever is a legitimate disease).

Then, this morning I have to wait until they open, get my beautiful box, then clean the ENTIRE house (well help) because the in-laws are arriving next weekend (for the trip that I am so excited to have my LCB bag for). My patience was well worth it.

It is all I could ask for and more. The perfect size, I was worried the LCB would be too big but I am very happy with my decision.

The Absolute Strap is unreal. I have spent so much more money on so much less quality and feel slightly ashamed I didn't just buy this 3 packs ($250) ago!!

I plan on spending the rest of the evening getting to know the bag (does anyone else wander around the house in their PJ's wearing their TB gear?) and how I want it to be packed. Then tomorrow I will try to share some pics!!

The better half has been laughing all evening but when we are in downtown Victoria and I have everything I need, easily at hand... never mind i still carry her stuff half the time and always have what she needs.

By disease, you mean gift, right? :D

I remember when my A45 first arrived, I packed it with easily a week's worth of clothes and toiletries. Still room. So I stuffed the open spaces with socks and hand towels. Then I wore it on my back around the house, up and down the stairs...the wife (fiancee at the time) laughed and shook her head, "you're a bag nerd!"

Months later, she was able to see the A45 in it's element as we traveled for our honeymoon, "Wow that bag really is functional...and looks good!"
