What’s the Most Indispensable Item Living at Sea?

That’s kind of a trick question because of course there are so many items essential to health and safety and comfort. But an item Rand and I have come to regard as essential is a waterproof backpack. Rand had one when we first met, and that backpack had been around the world with us – several times – and helped us to have a lot of fun. Whether it was on on our kayak, or crossing a river or other body of water, or just hiking in rain, that backpack saved our cameras and phones and other do-not-get-wet items many times over. Having ridden that backpack hard, and put it to bed wet a time too many, it was showing signs of wear and we realized we should replace it before it gave out.

Rand got a handsome blue one and I got a pink one that contributed a portion of the sale price to breast cancer research.DSC07084_1024 DSC07083_1024
