Hey, All!

Had some time this afternoon, so I'm dropping some pics of my new Empire Builder! I know everyone loves pics to help with their decision making process (I know I am obsessive about 'em), so here we go...!

Here's the mandatory "what am I packing?" pic...


And here is where it all disappears into the bag! Shot of the side profile as well...



Now, I count six (!) o-rings on the bag. The little suckers are everywhere. I took pictures to prove it, and hung my keys off each one to demonstrate. Here's the first one, tucked into the right-hand zip pocket on the front flap. I'm guessing this will be my go-to key location...


Next, the organizer area under the flap...


To BE continued in Part 2...

Could we have the packing list? I count 3 OPs, a computer, an ipad, a cayenne snake charmer, cell phone, notebook, glasses case, manila folder, water bottle, and what looks like a lunch pack?

I think it's amazing what you can stuff into the bag!

I forgot the packing list! Here's what I have going in:

- Lenovo Thinkpad T420 w/ Body Glove sleeve
- iPad w/ apple case
- Leather folio (about 1/2" thick)
- 3 organizer pouches
- Snake charmer w/ assorted power bricks and chargers
- A couple of file folders
- 2 eyeglass/sunglasses cases
- Camelback water bottle
- lunch bag

I was pretty shocked when I loaded it up myself!

Awesome photos, MagicTiki. Is it okay if I include them in our Flickr sets?

Sure can! I posted them on Flickr. Do I. Red to share them with you, or tag time in some special way?

I'll just grab them from Flickr if that's alright with you!
