I was just making a list of things that we need to remember for our trip and this is just the cables etc!

iPod USB cable
Phone charger lead
Laptop cable
Camcorder USB cable
Camcorder charger lead
Camera USB cable
Camera battery charger lead

When I think about my first trip in 1988 I probably only took one cable and that was a cable knit sweater!

Anyone else go bogged down with this kind of stuff?

Ugh. Do I ever. :sigh; I keep them all in their separate little ziplock baggie now. Keeps them somewhat under control.

yep same here! Once got stopped at new york and the guy said thats too many cables what are you planning????? I said well planning to attach my laptop, my two cell phones, charge my ipod, my cameras, my shaver etc etc!! :rolleyes008:

We need a roll up charging pad! Something like a thin roll out mousepad that attaches to the mains and then put everything on top and they charge.

I've seen the START of such technology in gadget magazines before now

Now we know where your next fortune will be made, Keith! ;) Get busy on that technology!

Yeah, I now travel with a geek bag. Chargers, phone cords and connectors to jerry-rig the phone for dial-up and a few other necessities.

Sadly, I lost touch with her a couple of years ago. Two crazybusy lives that met and enjoyed a virtual friendship for a period of time--although I did meet her in person at WDW once! :)

She'll always get full credit for the "Geek Bag"!

The "little fella" sitting on your countertop! :lol:

If it makes your life better, it's a good thing, Mick! :)

Just looks a bit strange!

We don't take laptops and I don't take my mobile phone, DH takes his for the journey there and back but we don't take a charger. I don't take IPods or Nintendo DS's so the only cables we have are our camera and camcorder ones.

I love being without phones and computers when I am at WDW :D

See, there's another one I forgot to put on the list! The DS charger!

I truly envy you. I can't even imagine what I'd be like without phones and computers but I'd love to find out one day

I couldn't live without them here! :lol:

I think it's because we have never taken stuff like that to WDW we don't really think about it. I know if DH had his phone it would drive me completely potty with people texting him football sores etc! :lol: No we are definitely better off without it all. :D

Well we need ipods for Poppy, Maisie and me on the flight. Laptop for DH to do his banking and me to do my live trip reports. Camcorder and camera are self explanatory. Nintendo DS for Owen on the flight. Phones for Geoff and I to keep in touch if we get separated. Like Keith, I can't image not having them with me!
