4. You’re going camping for a long weekend with a bunch of friends. Everybody agrees to bring one thing that others often don’t think to bring. What’s your contribution?

AM / FM radio with VHF weather band. Comes in handy if you want to know what the forecast may be. (The thing could also receive TV audio but after conversion to digital that part of the radio is now blank).

Dengue Fever on CD

Mixed CDs that I made on my Mac, The Beatles #1s, Fleetwood Mac Rumours, Dengue Fever CDs, anything else from my collection that can fit in a small carryon case.
