Having my dust-colored canvas backpack pre-packed & placed near the box truck door before the playa was great, and one of my favorite improvements for this year's Burn. I arrived after a 3 hour train ride from WA + 5 hours in Portland + a subsequent 12-hour push from Oregon on no sleep, and yet was able to hop on a bike and ride to my volunteer orientation without having to ransack the truck among 5 different bins to load the pack.
Here's what I carry:
* 32 oz. stainless canteen
* baggie w/ bandaids, neosporin & sports tape
* kit w/ eye drops (redness; tears formulas), lotion, gift lip balms
* jerky & Luna bar(s)
* notebook and 2 pens
* 5-hour Energy
* camping t.p.
clipped on to the outside with caribeeners:
* cup (1-2)
* hand sanitizer
* CPR mask
(The bike lock lives on the bike.)
