Dry Bag

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

I bought a SealLine 10l Dry Bag at REI to keep the Eee PC dry. I intend to take the Eee onto the boat and use it during the race. I want to load GPS tracks off my Garmin 76C handheld GPS, because it can only store about two days of continuous tracks. Copying pictures and video clips from the digital camera onto the Eee is probably another good use. Let’s see how much I’m going to use the Eee for actual writing. I’ve planned to try out the Eee on the coastal trip next weekend.

The picture shows the Eee with its protective pouch and a 12V charger which I had to buy separately and everything stowed in the dry bag.

Yesterday I booked the flights to get to the training in June/July.  Getting then from Heathrow to Gosport will take me take a bus, the railroad and a ferry.  No horse, though.
