    WRUW - Wednesday - 15 July 2015

    Good morning.

    A diver on terra firma "wearing" a leather strap and using a quartz movement......I'm sure I'm breaking some rules

    What's are rules?!?

    I have no idea what I'll be wearing in the morning because I've been stuck with an 8 hour flight delay and my bag is no where in sight. I might still be wearing this come tomorrow.

    Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Solid simple SNZG15



    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    You *check* the bag with your watches in it?

    Brave man.

    Actually, no. The flight attendant took my carry on bag from me and slapped a check on tag on it before I had a second to protest. So, now I've been separated from them and everything else I packed for this trip. I've also had a cancelled flight and a flight change since then. One can only hope the bag will be in baggage claim.

    My bag wasn't that big either. There was no reason for her to do that.

    They will pry the bag with my computer and camera equipment, and my watches from my cold dead hands. It carries everything and "fits under the seat in front of me" - so there's absolutely no reason to gate check it. If it doesn't go...I don't go.

    Everything else (boring things like clothing) are usually in a bag that almost always fits overhead. On domestic flights I'm *always* near the front of the line, but some planes are too tiny (and the bag doesn't *quite* meet European standards for carry on) - so it is occasionally gate checked.

    But...the laptop, camera gear, and watches...never!

    The bag is by "Urban Disguise" - highly recommended. Fits perfectly under the seat and carries everything I need to go around the world.
