Four buck bag


An inspired idea from host Simon. Local charity shop. I needed a bag to stow my kit in for the flights over to Alaska. Life expectancy about three days, after which it’d be ditched. My panniers weren’t a practical proposition, their various clips and hooks too vulnerable to the rough and tumble of the baggage mis-handlers.

Surprisingly, there was quite a bit of choice. Soon settling on a fairly large wheeled affair. Modest wear and tear, I promised to drop it into a charity shop in Anchorage, rather than simply discard it when I got there. Asking price was just four bucks – about three pounds – and one I wasn’t going to haggle over. Joked I’d try and get six for it in Alaska.
