    I can understand the lightness argument, but in that case I'd just get the Halcyon. I wouldn't have done that anyway, as the 1050 is about as flexible as I am comfortable with in the professional...

    Now that they also have iPhones, it's a good time to discover the magic of Facetime group calls. It's loads of fun for kids and grandparents alike.

    So you have a solid excuse to ignore work-related calls for a week...and it costs NOTHING? That sounds awesome. Looking out the window of Europe's railscape without a phone to distract you will be...

    The salespeople at places like Nordstrom usually have very small bottles, tubs and atomizers for giving samples, they'll let you take a few for a travel kit. They're smaller than anything I have...
  5. Attaching a frame sheet to the Western Flyer

    I couldn't find any demonstrations of this in the forums, but saw some references that it is possible. Has anyone done this and used it intensively? Looking at this as an option to try before a...

    If it's for work, see what your employer will allow you to expense. My employer just has people use the international day pass. And if your employer won't expense it, then you might be surprised...

    I think it looks pretty well pared down; certainly you "could" get rid of a lot of stuff, but that alone isn't a reason to. I like paring things down in quantity, such that I'd have to buy things at...

    I believe there are also alarm apps that will use your phone screen as the "lamp" for this purpose.

    Most airlines put their newest planes on long-haul flights, and they tend to be quieter. The regional/older jets are where you'll be fighting the volume more. It also depends on where you sit on...

    Unless you have other stuff in the ScotteVest, these should go in there, too. Check out Rolf Potts' no-bag blog how he uses his vest.

    For years I used Shure SE215s, which are great isolating earbuds with interchangeable cables. Once the buds themselves fell apart, I bought 3 headsets to try out; the Bose QC20, QC35, and the...

    Skip buying an overseas adapter for your USB box and and just buy a native USB box over there, probably cheaper too. The plane will certainly have a USB plug for keeping topped off in-transit, just...

    Kirkland brand bottled water from Costco. Light, thin-walled, tasteless...not officially "collapsible", but you can smash them down pretty easily to make room in your bag, and pop them back out to...

    Some types of travel aren't good for one-bag. I can easily do 2 weeks on my own in my Western Flyer, but if I have to haul work equipment, drawings, or conference stuff I can end up with another bag...
