    TB Represent!

    My son and I are driving from Jacksonville, FL to Tulsa, OK. He’s going to work as an inter during the month of July for a curriculum publishing company. I am a contractor for the company, so I have the pleasure of riding shotgun. I’ll spend a couple of days there doing some work and then will fly back to Florida.

    It’s a bit of an odd trip. From Oklahoma, my son will be leaving to drive north to Breckinridge, CO to be a part of our family vacation. Because I’ve got available trunk space, I packed a Medium Yeoman Duffle containing my hiking boots, wool socks, Stetson, and a skirt I’m knitting. Those will be nice to not have to pack in the airplane when I head out later in July.

    After Colorado, he will drive back to Jacksonville solo. He love photography and is planning to stop and take a lot of pictures, so he packed a bag containing just photo gear.

    Here’s a shot taken this morning. This is just a few of the TB bags we’ve taken along for the ride. The Yeoman Duffle was still in the trunk, and my Side Kick was on my hip when I took it.

    Hanging, I’ve got my Original Halcyon Maker’s Bag, which contains all of my work items. Hanging next to it is my Pop Tote in Navy, which contains my knitting, iPad, and pursy stuff. Hanging off the handle of the cart is a Mini Yeoman Duffle (Aubergine) that is carrying my CPAP.

    On the floor of the bag are my son’s Brain Bag (likely his all time favorite of the bunch), his Smart Alec, and my Aeronaut 45 (Aubergine). The Brain Bag is carrying his motel clothing and toiletries. The Smart Alec contains his photography stuff. My Aeronaut has all of my clothes, toiletries, and tea-making supples.

    We are doing the drive over three days. I have had blood clots in the past, so I like to take plenty of breaks with walks. Next break is coming up in a few minutes: Beale Street in Memphis.

    We are having a great time on this trip. Both of us love our TB collection. Side Note: This is the first time I’ve taken my A45 and not used packing cubes in the main compartment. Instead I utilized the tie-downs. I needed to pack for road travel as well as office clothing. I think I now prefer this method. It is super easy to live out of the bag without having to dive into the packing cubes. On one side pocket I’m using a Packing Cube Shoulder Bag to keep track of my toiletries. The other side is carrying my tea supplies (Size 2 Travel Stuff Sack), my Kindle in its Etsy case, and some power cords and Jackery in a little TB fabric zipper bag (I never can remember the name of it, but it’s not a pouch. It’s the one that has a little hook.) Everything has its place and is easy to access and remove.

    I live in Tulsa! I hope your son’s internship is a great experience. Please let me know if either of you need any suggestions for places to eat or visit while you are in T Town. If you need anything at all, just ask!

      Thanks so much, @AshleyM! I know my son will appreciate it. We arrived yesterday about 1:30 in the afternoon and drove straight to the office. It’s located in Bixby. They put him to work right away. He is interested in the downtown area, coffee shops, camera shops, and the whereabouts of the shipping container shopping area. He read about it online. I know he won’t have time to check things out during the week, but he will love using his weekends to explore his new home. He is only here for the month of July and then he’ll drive up to Breckinridge to join the rest of the family. I know he’s going to have a great time!

        The Boxyard is the shipping container place. It is fun. I am a photographer as well. There’s a local camera shop called Apertures he might enjoy, as well as some of the little galleries here and there. If he is in town the first Friday of July (is that before the CO trip?), he should check out the First Friday events downtown. That is really when that part of town is its liveliest. Have a wonderful visit! Let me know if you need anything!

          I decided to get my sketch on during a lunch break on a hike. And no, I am not quitting my day job, lol. This was the first time I had taken my TB sketchbook on a hike, and it will not be the last. Pictured is the start of a sketch for fun. Happy 4th!

              Nailed baby’s first flight carry-on only! Pictured is 1 week for 2 adults + 1 little for a 2-state adventure. Trip included business attire (plus his/hers dress shoes in A45) and baby gear (Smart Alec). The baby carrier is in the handle of the A45 and the stroller (yes, the stroller!) is in the large shop bag. I had ziploc bags in each side pocket of the SA with emergency clothes and a diaper change kit — so handy! I’m thankful I got the SA before it retired. We each had one clear 3D cube tethered in the A45, and I also had a travel cubelet packed in to use as a purse after arrival. Going through security with this setup was a breeze. Transferring from shuttle to plane to train was so easy and she was such a good traveler. Can’t wait for our next trip!

                      Loved this! How fortunate she is to have two cool parents to get her traveling early in life :)

                            Started the morning by indulging in an everything pretzel with cream cheese and a cappuccino.

                            How sitting on my front porch on this rainy morning. I don't do this enough!
