Get ready to add your two cents.
Here comes another forum post.
A lot of gondoliers won't step on a boat without a few necessary items.
For me, on the boat, as in life, I don't go anywhere without a flashlight, cell phone, and a knife (usually two -a standard size pocketknife and a small Swiss Army knife).
Lately, I don't leave the house without a camera and lenses too.
I have a small gym bag that goes with me any time I go out on a boat.
The items in that bag are a little more specific to the job.
We're not talking about "man purses" here.
This is a tool-kit, with the tools-of-the-trade in it.
As you might expect, I'll follow up on this post with what I keep in my bag.
tell me what's in your bag.
So here are the questions:
Do you carry a bag?
If so, what works?
If not, why not?
What items are indispensable to you?
On a gondola?
When you travel? (I just threw that one in)
Has an item in your pocket or bag ever "saved" a cruise?
So squeeze your brain, excrete your best advice, and hit me with a nicely opinionated spitball of wisdom.
And if it makes ya' happy, start it out with "Hey Greg, you're a jackass..."
I can take it.
