20 Types of Travel Gear I Carry, and Almost Nobody Else
Congrats on the weight loss. Things the seem impossible one day become easy the next. The awareness comes from more than the scale. One day you wake up and just see your world and change is easy.
Oh, the gear walk was interesting and helpful. Thanks.
This is fantastic Andy. This has been the number one question in the back of my mind regarding your electronic gear and what kind of essential and redundant back up digital systems you always carry in your travels.
I have specific categories on YouTube -- There as many "playlists" on the YouTube.com HoboTraveler.com channel. Sadly, YouTube jacks around links, moves them, and does all sort of ways to keep you from just easily staying on my HoboTraveler channel. Nonetheless it is good to look through all the playlists. https://www.youtube.com/user/HoboTraveler/playlists
Hi Andy, if you don't already have a video like this, could you do one where you lay out all of your electronics, especially to do with phones/communication, cameras and the Internet. I have questions such as do you pack more than one laptop in case one fails? Overall I'm interested to see how well equipped you are with redundancy back ups all in one video.
Redundancy, effectiveness of Travel Gear is essential. Yes Deb, I can collect all my travel electronics in one location, and try to explain my rudundancy system, more ore less what I do when the electronics breaks. I WILL MAKE VIDEO SOON - What is funny, I sell an electronic adapter, that I refuse to leave home without. I mean, if I don’t have one, I am walking around in cities searching for them. I have 3 of them in my pack right now, I showed in the 20 video a broken one, it is the light gadget that allows me to use a light bulb outlet as an electrical outlet. It works in India, Africa, sometimes in Thailand, many place I need it. If you got on a jungle tour. I have yet to sell one, and I have talked about these things to 100’s of travelers in person, and on videos. The little babie has saved me 100-300 USD dollars in Hotel fees. I have been able to live in a good room, with horrible electricity because of it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KIXSPGK Here is me explaining how to make a Universal electrical adapter that will work in any electrical outlet on the planet. Something you can buy in any country, this is effective, while the ones people buy just do not work, this gets the job done. Most people buy rather stupid ones that arc electricity, this one stops the jumping of electricity in a bag electrical plug, when a plug falls out of a outlet, there is a problem. This is all good fun, but 99 percent of travelers are only gone for 2 weeks, they are lost in space, never lose faith in the crap gear they purchased. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNu9cPL3gtI
Interesting video. Here's a question for a related video: after you are established in a hotel and are out exploring the city, what do you consider essential to carry on your person? I mean, besides the obvious stuff like ID, money, camera, etc. For example, if I'm awake, I have a knife and a small flashlight in my pockets because I use them many times during the course of a day.
