This is my 6th year attending Fan Faire/SOE Live, which for me is a trip mixed with work and play. For this year it’s doubly compounded, as my usual once-a-year convention turned into four after attending January’s Year of EverQuest/Landmark alpha launch event, June’s E3 convention, this week’s SOE Live and finally, BlizzCon in November.
Over time and with more frequent travel, I’ve not only learned some valuable things (like bringing along snacks for those days you miss meals, and that Vegas hotels do not have their own coffee pots) but also have had to bring along more and more equipment for work. This year I’m toting around a laptop, DSLR camera with an extra lens, digital voice recorder, my phone, a tablet, and all the crazy accessories associated with all this, just to name a few.
So with all these things you need to be organized. Or at least I do. I like to be able to grab a bag and know that my backup batteries are in it. I like having all my toiletries in one accessible spot.
Long story long… here’s some of my current packing organizers!
