We are heading to Nebraska tomorrow and I am getting my gear all packed up. Here are my gadget/gear essentials that I am bringing along.
Alite Mayfly Chair
When all the couches are taken at my wife’s parent’s house, a guys gotta sit! Also, I can’t wait to take this guy camping one day.
Mercy Supply Leather Moleskin Journal Cover
Gotta keep the notes at the ready to jot ideas down. From @mercysupply
Shoutout to @samlarson for showing me the way with these incredible pens. Always have them around.
Old School Ruler
I cannot remember where I picked this little guy up but it is great for helping me make straight lines when I am drawing stuff in the journal.
Canon Rebel and Lenses
Ok ok I know I’m not a PRO, but this gets the job done! Thanks to @meredithbacon photography for introducing me.
Pigma Micron Pens
These are some of my favorite pens to mark in books. I grabbed a few to take along.
Nebraska is cold. And yes, the flavor is cherry. What about it?
Leatherman Crater c33Tx Pocket Knife
Black oxide version, of course!
Anker Device Charger
I saw this on @uncrate and bought it immediately. It is advertised as being able to charge an iPhone 6 times! With having trips to Argentina and Israel happening soon, this is a must.
Mercy Supply Leather Key ClipThis little guy is too convenient. I HATE keys in my pockets. Also from @mercysupply
iPad Mini with Twelve South Case
I’ve got it all here. Managing my blog. Instagram. Books. My Bible. Email. I am good to go. My holiday reading is “The Hobbit” and “Boundaries”. And I’m convinced that @twelvesouth makes the best case for the iPad.
The Valley of Vision
Can’t go without this collection of puritan prayers to keep my wandering heart grounded.
I know they aren’t “beats” but I think these are the best headphones for the price, hands down. I might just have to listen to a podcast or an ebook during our 12 hour drive.
MacBook Pro Charger
Gotta keep it charged. Apple is a marvel at everything, but for some reason, I think they missed it on this charger. I can NEVER get it to wrap well.
Suunto Wrist Watch
This was a gift from my staff a long time ago and I still wear it. Best watch I have ever owned.
PortSmithCo Minimalist Wallet
Well made by @portsmithco and it keeps it simple. (Until I make one of my own!)
// Did you notice the leather cutting board that all the gear is on? Some fun stuff is coming!
// So what are your travel essentials? I’d love to know!
