The last couple of years I have used a messenger bag and will most likely stick to it even with the negatives of it (all the weight on one shoulder and sore back from it). But I don't want to do a traditional backpack because I don't like the idea of my bag being behind me and not being able to see if someone tries to get into it. Yea, I am paranoid. Blame it on me being raised by a cop LMAO. So that whole thing is still up in the air as of right now.
As for what I carry in whatever bag I end up bringing...
- Hand Sanitizer
- Travel sized deodorant
- Travel sized toothbrush/paste
- Hair brush (have one that folds up)
- Binder with all my parking/event information, dining information (I have a food sensitive medical issue so I plan ahead), notebook paper (I am a writer so I like to keep stuff like that on hand)... it's more light weight then it sounds, I swear.
- Filtered water bottle
- Dice (most likely the heaviest thing I carry haha)
