What’s a guy to do?

Saturday, July 19, 2008

Alright you travellers. Question.

It’s going to be HOT and HUMID in Chicago while I’m there. As such, I plan to wear loose and little clothing, especially during my forays downtown.

So, how do I carry everything with me?

My wallet and camera and pda. My change and a map or two, pen, napkin or kleenex for that emergency nose problem, etc.

You get what I’m saying?

In Winter I have enough pockets for it all. But summer travel is tough. Pocket space wise.

I’m not a big fanny pack guy, and carrying around a manpurse, well, it has to be a big manpurse to carry all that crap.  And I’m not secure enough in my identity to pull that off.

So options?

What’s to be done?

What do you do, when you do it. Or do you even do it?


Talk back.


  1. I always carry my backpack. It goes everywhere with me. Pens, notebooks, napkins, meeting booklets, and such. It's not a manpurse, but I guess it is close enough.


  2. I'm thinking that might be the best solution Jeremy.

  3. yep, Doug uses a small backpack too. And no matter how hard you try you can't escape that brutal humidity... icky.

    But have fun! And congrats too :)

  4. Go with the fanny pack, and ignore the mockers.

    Better yet, go with both a fanny pack and a backpack.

  5. I am all about the manpurse. I think it is very functional but if you have to carry lots a backpack is the best solution. If I was in PA I could have loaned you a man purse.


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
