What I carry. Plus, a Give-Away Contest!

So, Fritz did a bag audit. And he carries a lot of stuff.

There's a contest related to all the stuff I carry, so pay attention and you might just win!

Since I switched over to winter mode, I really haven't taken everything out of my Kensington Contour Backpack at once. Until Now, that is. Edit: Actually, I forgot, I did this once before when I just switched over back in late October. It's interesting to see how things change (and what remains the same)

Enough banter though, on with the STUFF

Main Pocket
Specialized Deflect Gloves
Plastic Bags
The Black Book (mostly my obscure hand-written UNIX and programming notes)
Blackburn MTB pump
Burger King receipt
Red Dragon chinese receipt

Middle Pocket
MacBook Power Cord
Nintendo DS (Road Schwag!)
Spare DiNotte Batteries
NiteIze Reflector/Lights for backpack (Visible in action here)
SanDisk 12-in-1 Reader

Back Pocket
2x Blank CD-R
2x Photon MicroLight 2
Keys/USB Flash
Guaranteed Ride Home card
USB Cord for Camera/Card Reader
USB Cord for charging my LG Chocolate

Left Side Pen/Pencil
Bus Pass/Office Access Card/Lanyard
LG Chocolate
More plastic bags

Right Side Park Tool MTB-3 Multi-Tool
Master Lock Python Cable Lock (Easily hacked)

Now, for the Give-Away Details!
What's up for grabs? has offered up one Large sized Primal Wear cycling jersey to one of my lucky readers. Literally, thousands of people come back here for some reason. I can't figure it out, either.

If you wear another size... Well, Sorry. If you don't like Pink Floyd... well... what are you thinking?! No. I haven't worn it. Actually, I haven't even gotten it yet. But I will.

How do you win it?
Guess the weight of this backpack with all the stuff listed above. My scale is accurate to within .1 pound. E-mail your guess to focushacks (at) Make sure you include "Backpack Contest" in the subject line so it doesn't get lost in the mess that is my inbox.

First person (according to my e-mail server) that e-mails me the most accurate guess wins. Over or under the actual weight does not matter. I am not Bob Barker. This is not The Price Is Right.


  1. You have to e-mail me from an address I can reply to once and get in touch with you. That means no goofy anti-spam e-mail things or auto-responders.
  2. I will only ship it to a real address (no P.O. Boxes) within the 48 mainland United States Of America.
  3. One guess per person.
  4. Contest ends as soon as someone guesses the absolute correct weight.
  5. If the exact weight isn't answered by 11:59 PM Friday, Feb 15, 2008 Central Time (where I'm at), I'll pick the person who guessed the closest, the earliest.
Once the contest is over, I will reply to the e-mail from the person who won. You'll have until 11:59 PM Monday, February 18 to provide me with a mailing address. If I don't hear back from you, I'll move on to the next runner up every 24 hours until someone replies. But really, who doesn't want a MASSIVE PF:DSOTM Jersey?!
