Here’s an ever-changing list of things that I might take with me when traveling. I don’t take everything on this list every time, nor do I necessarily always put the items in the bag where they’re listed - it depends on the circumstances of each trip.
I intended to write this immediately after the road trip, but forgot. My memory was jogged by this thread over on AnandTech Off-Topic. Rather than responding directly in that thread, I decided that I’d write a post here, so that I can easily find it in the future, for both personal reference and recommendations for others.

Over on AndroidCentral, everyone seems to be discussing favorite Android hardware and software of 2014.

One big difference between AndroidCentral’s posts and mine: I don’t write briefly. Verbosity is my style, when left to my own devices.
