Sometimes I get excited about little ideas.
Earlier I was walking down the pier, and I re-remembered that I liked the idea of living like a Pokémon trainer, or just a ranger in general. Walking around the planet with only my backpack.
Then tonight, I also re-remembered the little idea of: What would I hold in my backpack? What would be the stuff I'd carry around all the time?
I think about these little ideas from time to time
Backpack contents ideas:
Originally I thought LAPTOP! But over time I realised that, laptops are heavy, and plus they can only be used for song long, and you also have to be sitting when you use one. So in place of a laptop, a PDA would be very sufficient. The PDA might double as other functions. Like, a PDA phone and MP3 player. But I'm not sure about the good-ness of the combination devices like that.
In real life, aside from dreams, I've been schemin' about getting a PDA to serve as a sort of a Pokémon Zukan (Pokédex), to hold information like locations, when Pokémon learn attacks, and EV/IVs base/max stats. The PDA could also serve many many other functions, though. Maybe instead of a journal or paper, I could use the PDA. If I got an idea on the road, or wanted to write, I could just bust out the PDA, sketch or write out the idea, and go. It could be a calculator.
If I get a PDA, it has to be possible to take the inside parts and put it into a case like one of these:
My first choice, the Kantou Pokémon Zukan:
The Jouto Pokémon Zukan:
The problem with this, is, the screen is too damn small!
The Houen Pokémon Zukan:
But this is probably the most functional bet, and it's got the PDA-sized screen. It seems more sturdy than the other models.
The Shinou Pokémon Zukan:
I would pay very copious sums of cashes to own a Shinou Zukan replica DS.
I'm not sure I like it's design, though. It certainly couldn't be a PDA, as PDAs have only a single screen.
I wonder if a DS's software bits could be hacked, and install PDA-like OS? And add memory? I'd be very down with that.
One problem with that, though, is creating the case.
Oh, with the PDA also, I'd have to have this as a companion:
A keyboard, made of light. Amazing device available here.
Another piece I'd need to carry would be: MP3 player! And not just any MP3 player, but I'd have to get the maximum capacity available.
Another: Cell phone! I'd have to get something which would have service all over. Ideally it'd also have internet capability, and that could connect to the PDA so I could use the PDA as a computer.
I wish I could have this as a cell phone:
Another: Digital camera? Not sure about the camera, but it'd be cool to take pictures of the various places I'd been. It would, of course, have to take good quality pictures, and would have to hold a lot of images. I'd get the largest capacity cards available. This is another thing:
Another thing to take into prosideration: The backpack itself! Given the ability, I'd want a replica Pokémon backpack.
Gold and Silver backpack:
But I doubt I'd be able to get a replica backpack. So my ideal backpack should be comfortable for long walks, and it should be able to withstand rain, or I'd at least have to make a cover for it, for when it rained.
Other things I'd have to carry in the backpack:
Extra socks/ underwear
Sleeping bag? (carried outside, under backpack)
Stretching it a bit: one-person tent? They can be very small, but I don't know how much weight that'd be. I probly would not carry a tent. At the least I may bring like... a tarp type of tent.
Washing bits? Like toothbrush and washcloth? I would not bring shampoo, definitely.
I got a bit distracted with this entry. If there's more I think of later, I'll edit more in later.
As an addition, here's a picture I made Monday:
