Poppa's Got A Brand New Carry-on Bag

I've always had backpacks for airplane travel, eschewing suitcases and wheeled bags. I figured it was a good workout to have the weight on my shoulders, and I always walked up the stairs instead of using escalators, and never took the moving walkways. BUT on my last trip, I had so much weight, it wore me out. This time I got an Osprey rolling pack (with day pack, wheels, and shoulder straps), a new Da Kine day pack, and cut down on clothing as much as I could. Much improved.
   Even though I have a (11") MacAir laptop, a bunch of camera gear, couple of books, and on this trip, a digital projector, the weight is on wheels -- such a relief. Well, duh.
   Airports are stressful enough as it is. I'll get my workouts in other ways. The strap is for a fairly aerodynamic camera bag, in which I have my new Olympus OM5-D10 with 3 lenses -- gonna carry it in my city explorations here. The vest is a Columbia Omni-Shade -- lightweight, bunch of pockets Also, stealth vaping -- heh-heh -- works in airports.

That looks brilliant - efficient, practical and tiny! Can that all be counted as carry-on?

I have the same attitude re taking the stairs, wearing a pack, etc., while traveling, but think you made a wise decision. No need to wear yourself out on the journey, plenty of time to do so whilst at your destination!
