    Default Travel Gear

    Gentlemen,

    These days I don't travel as much as I did in the past. On January 4, however, I have a date at my VA hospital for knee replacement. On August 3, I had the right knee replaced. This time it is in the left knee. I will spend three days on the recovery floor after surgery, and in all likelihood a week to 10 days on the rehabilitation floor. That's what happened during the first operation.

    It's not as if I'm soaring with pleasure in the South of France, but hey, we do the best we can.

    I'm not sure if I'll feel like shaving the first three days of recovery; on the rehab floor I'm sure I'll take every chance I can for a good shave. Photographed is my usual set up for travel. Each trip has specific requirements. This one is designed for my hospital stay.

    My wet pack, in luscious leather, is a replica of what British officers were known to have used in the 1920s or so. I love this style of wash kit; it holds everything I need. The top pocket holds the personal bathroom stuff. The shave brush is the Simpson Duke 3 synthetic and the razor the RazoRock Game Changer.

    The pocket below it holds blades, a little knife with scissors, finger nail clippers and finger nail file. The two main pockets on the bottom hold the pre-shave (Castle Forbes), shaving cream (OneBlade lavender) and styptic pencil, on the right, and witch hazel, aftershave balm (OneBlade lavender) and British Sterling aftershave splash, on the right.

    So gentlemen, what is your general travel set up?

    That is a delightful setup Obie. May I inquire about where you found it?

    Thanks for the kind words, David. The wet pack is the Danes & Hathaway British military style. I see the vendor Fendrihan, in Canada, has it.

    I like it, Bob. It seems to have all the convenient space you need to pack your shaving set up. Well done, my friend.

    Nice pack Obie!

    Mine is of the other extreme.

    After reading your post I looked at mine and decided to clean it out. I found a small towel,strops, hone, soap,oiled rags, 9 straights, DE blades but no DE along with a length of para cord and $11.63 in change.

    I will have to rearrange/change the contents before my next trip down to Charlies!

    Tim,
    I'm glad my post prompted you to re-organize your travel set up. Looks like that box can hold a big store.

    It is a smaller version.

    It is water proof and I can toss it in the back of my truck with no worries.

    If it gets destroyed I more things to worry about than my grooming kit.

    The biggest negative with something like this is that many times what you want is in at the bottom.
