My hat…

Hi everyone. I’m home in France now, trying to get over my jet lag. Re-reading some of my early posts, I realize that I’d promised you a post about how I organize things while travelling. One aspect of organization is keeping track of the more important items that I need to have on hand.


October 28th-29th, and all along these three months


You may have noticed my hat in some of my photos:

Some of you probably recognize it as the hat I bought in the south of France last June:

Throughout my trip it has hardly left me, though here it is lying on the bed at Larry’s house:

But it plays an important role in addition to keeping the sun off my face. It helps me to keep track of some very important items, such as the all-important key to Van:

My hat is where I stock a lot of important items when I’m camping somewhere…

…or when I’ve checked into a motel: you can see here

So I always know where they are.


I’ve lost a few items on this trip. My bike chain and lock, the table that came with Van (I took it out and forgot to put it back, only to remember it a few hundred miles down the road), a mouse (I left it on the table in a Starbucks), and so on. But nothing really important. I dare to say that now that I’m safely home.

Now, where’s my hat?
