    My son and I had a working lunch this afternoon (what better way to work through some python code?), and then brought my dad his iPad. The Pilot housed my 13” MacBook Pro, my son’s 12” MacBook, and my dad’s iPad Air 2, each in their own Cache.

      Ooooh, Maverick, your lunch looks great! Now I’m hungry. Your son looks all grown up these days!

        Our Tom Bihn bags are like our dogs in that we absolutely adore them, and they don’t need a bath very often.

        But when your Tom Bihn bag does need a bath, some mild dish soap and cool water helps to do the job nicely!

          Simple photos of simple pleasures...fresh apples and vegetables from local growers, a bag that balances form and funky, utility and joy, and a walk in the cool autumn beauty of Nova Scotia...all on a Saturday morning with the rest of the day open before me...

                    YES THIS.
                    I actually was thinking about this exact usage! Thanks for posting!
                    The next time I have a chance to grab a size one stuff sack in Solar, I think I will.

                      That looks like a wonderful meal! (Is that pho?) Your son is a giant now!! :D (and what? your son doesn't have his own TB bag for toting his computer?) :D (just teasing you, maverick!)

                        I started doing this (to my HLT2 as well). For internal zip pulls and GW pulls, I like using the threads or ribbons repurposed from clothing hang tags , as the scale (~gauge :)) tend to be a little smaller than the paracord I have on hand.

                          Indeed, it was vegan pho, and it was amazing!

                          He is now taller than me, but I'm going to catch up to him!

                          I would be thrilled to see him carry a TOM BIHN bag, but the things that dado is in to are entirely too cool! :)

                            Hi theswiftbiker and Chicagoan,

                            Don’t know whether you guys are interested, but there have been some related posts about using the Travel Tray this way, starting with Darcy’s Travel tray goes camping

                            She used a Guardian Light (now retired, but you can still find these, e.g Adventure Lights Guardian Hunting Series Dog Collar Light, Red or Adventure Lights Guardian Hunting Series Dog Collar Light, White from Amazon)

                            I’ll also add that bchaplin also showed pictures of this with a Wasabi Travel Tray and other flashlights — this also worked with my QUark MiNi, which has a diffuse setting, but I couldn’t take a good low light picture with Zest or Solar. Apologies, but since this was posted in the Just for registered users forum, people who haven’t logged in won’t be able to view her photos,

                            Sometimes when you're traveling it's nice to have a softer light. Flashlights and hotel room overheads can be harsh.
                            Oh, and if you do get a size 1 Travel Stuff Sack, you can also use it as a divider for a Small Travel Tray. That’s another bchaplin post

                              I love Pho 75 in Arlington... need to get some soon, it's been too long! (There is also a pho place closer to where I live, but Pho 75 is my favorite!!)

                              Hahaha! Of course! I should've realized that right away, since we have a teen and a tween, both of whom are much more hip and knowledgeable about the world than their parents. ;) (I've managed to convert them to TB gear for travel, however!)
