This is the first all-nighter I've had to do since college. I've been up all night going over everything before I leave for Chicago tomorrow. I've scanned all my documents and emailed them to myself in case I need access to them on the road. I like this idea, because even if I lose everything I own, I can still get my documents from the web.

I got a new battery for my watch too. I've been so lazy about getting a new battery that I haven't worn my watch in 4 months. Time to get used to it again (ack). It's amazing that Wal-Mart is the only store capable of replacing the battery in my watch, and for only $3!. The mall wanted $16, bastards.

I'm a little drawn on how much insect repellent to take. I'm sure I'll be able to buy some in the places I need it, but I already have 3 containers of this army issue DEET formula. I'd like to just take all 3 and be prepared, but its just more weight to carry.

I had my mom sew some secret pouches into my daypack today. One is a tight-lipped pouch for my

laptop so that its difficult to remove from the bag, and doubly-insulated from knife slashing. She also installed a secret pouch for my GPS unit near the top of my bag where the antenna will be. My GPS antenna is magnetic, intended to be used on the top of a car. She had the idea to sew a washer (little metal circle type) onto the bag so I can easily move or remove my antenna when I need. Genius. I'll try to stick a picture of it here.
