Since January, I've went on 3 week-long trips for work. This will be the 4th.
I always appreciate and am thankful for the opportunity to grow and further my knowledge and my career, and this trip is no different. I am excited for the upcoming week and what the company has in store for us! This is my favorite trip to take of the year, since it's our Corporate Summer Meeting.
Lot's of fun and enjoyable things over the course of this meeting - first, our company basically rents out the entire hotel lol - and we have a volleyball tournament (which I am playing in again this year!) - HUGE awards ceremonies - motivational speakers and guests - breakouts - and we always get taken to Ichiban on the day before the formal dinner (which I love) ...
This year is a little bit different for me - because I have had the honor of being chosen for a pilot that is rolling out for our upcoming season. I'm one of only 25 people in the whole company who was asked to be a part of the creation and feedback of creating the software that will replace our current system.
Kind of a big deal - and we are rolling it out this Fall season.
Also - our area kicked ass this year so I know we will be getting recognized in a few areas.
It's going to be a really exciting meeting for me and my group this year!
This backpack was the perfect size for my 10 day trip, and I even had some extra room.
I was looking for a pack that was panel loading, not larger than 60L, was comfortable to wear for any hiking or extended wait times that might be encountered, and also it would be an added benefit if I could find something that would work as a carry on (I despise checking luggage).
I managed to find all of those things in this backpack - and for a reasonable price!
The best part of this pack though - is the detachable day pack.
-It came in handy on SO many occasions-
- On the plane as a carry on for those items I wanted with me
- On the bus rides when we had to stow our larger pack
- Quick trips around the town when we needed to take items, but didn't need - or want - to lug a full pack around
I was also impressed with the comfort of this bag. I'm not quite sure how much mine weighed when it was fully packed up - but I enjoyed the day pack could attach to the front of my body to evenly distribute the weight and make the pack even more comfortable to trek around with.
The only thing I did buy was a few extra clips since the front of the day pack doesn't have any. The clips were $5 and worked perfectly - so it wasn't an issue.
