And then was awestruck to hear a much tinier, faster boing boing boing boing boing as a smaller Roo followed.

* Writing a list of items I want to have with me on the inside of the bag (towards the top) in fine-tip sharpie. Asterisks go next to items that are time-of-day specific, like sunscreen and sunglasses. I did this with my 2009-2010 bag, but ran out of time to do this on my 2011 bag, and getting ready to go anywhere took me longer than it should've (being a forgetful and distractible person who likes to dither). Lesson re-learned.
* Pre-packing the backpack before I leave for the playa, so I can hop out of the vehicle & run an errand without having to unpack the whole truck (eliminating the "Canteen . . . bike lock . . . where's my goggles?" rigamarole.) I did remember to do this for, the second year in a row, and it was awesome.
. . . Agreed, bigger is not always better, but lots of compartments are wonderful.
