this photo cam about this morning because my ex-girlfriend sent me a picture of a friend with a load of stuff laid out on the bed and she said it reminded her of me.
I then thought it would be funny to put all my stuff on the bed and send a picture back.
I then knew I could ruffle a few feathers on the Warmshowers Facebook page. There are so many opinionated people over there unfortunately
Just mention helmets, weight, or technology and people are just dying to tell you that your doing it all wrong
it was kind of an experiment and the opinions I got from all sides where as expected.
About half of the gear in the photo no longer works. And the other half was bought along the way, At my last country I did have 95% of this with me though. The rest I posted back at various times and I also gave a few things away and threw a few things away.
I thought it was as much a reflection on me as anything else.
and too any one who says you don't NEED this much stuff.
I agree 100%
BTW it except the Macbook it all fits in a small ortlieb front pannier and weighs about 10kg.
The camera I took the picture with isn't in the picture
That doesn't fit in my TECH bag.
So nice to be back on the Thorn Forum where different opinions are observed and discussed rather than shouted at and seen as WRONG!
