  Something for air travel - pencils ready . . .

So far I have not used this, but . . .
I usually only take carry on bags now, however on my recent return to the far east, I found due to a request from a fellow limey in Pattaya for 250 Tea bags, I was short of space in my day pack carry on.
Not wanting to pay some expensive price for a lewis luton suitcase, I looked around for an alternative.
The problem with suitcases now is that the price is enhanced for status.
What is Louly Vooton suitcases really? they are just vinyl printed with a certain pattern.
They are certainly not worth $3100 for a pull along bag!
However walk into a Hilton pulling one of these and the staff will be drooling over you thinking that as you own that suitcase, you tip BIG.
My alternative - a tool box. No I did not buy one for this trip, because I filled my carry on bag - just.
When you have stopped laughing I will explain why a tool box is a good alternative.
They are tough, lockable, sometimes pull-alongs, and if you walk into the Hilton with one of these, the staff will just think you are some specialist technician for NASA.

$40 will buy you a good one.


Cool

Hey Limey Pete, I think you're the only one on the forum with an avatar. How did you do it? I have a picture I wanted to use for an avatar, but it got rejected for being oversized. I changed it to a square shape, and it was still rejected for being too large. It's 200 KB and the max for the forum avatar is 50 KB, but it says it will automatically resize and it doesn't. Anyway, if you have a suggestion, thanks. If not, it's just as well because it's really not that great of a picture anyway.  

George

If you were into hiking,back packing and climbing in the 70's. You will remember Wilderness Experience,they made packs and stuff. Well,do you remember the klettersack. It was a day pack size made for the most part for climbers. It was a very popular pack,people are still using some of the old ones from the 70's. Well,one of the former owners of Wilderness Experience got back the rights to the original klettersack,and he has a kick starter going on right now. They will be using the original design and the same materials as the 70's pack. And it's not a bad deal for a high end day pack,75.00. Some of you old farts may be interested in this.

Good morning! Yes, I'd echo what I was just reading in another thread about "enough knives".......?

I am buying a bunch of firearms accessories from a kid who is selling it all to go West. Then, he adds a Buck to the deal for $10, which I wasn't too enthused about as I already have the old venerable 119 for deer work that Grandpa gave me decades ago. Sure, I responded, figuring you can always refuse it on meeting up. It's a Thug. 

Rule #9; Never leave home w/o a knife. Not sure what Rule # this would be but, you can never have too many cool knives! I went to research this beauty and found your History here, Karen and Ron's legacy of quality and fun living. Thank You, look forward to sharing and learning more.

Anyone used the new cob flashlights, and if so how do they compare with the led flashlights?
