Picked up this grocery bag from the Casino Shop in Chamonix years ago. Much beloved. But the handle finally ripped off.

If someone spots one of these bad boys in the Alps, pick one up for me and I'll pay the shipping. Thnx.

Lox, you can swing by and snag one of these this week, right?

You think you have a nice car until you park in the parkhaus garage to get the train up to Zermatt in Switzerland.

You can't sew on a new fucking handle strap? Logged on after Years just to tell you this.

I should clarify. The handle didn't rip. The plastic bag part where the handle is attached is ripped. And there's no point in trying to sew it back since the plastic bag part is disintegrating.

Saw a dude with similar non-alps :( Aldi tote at the pool the other day. Might have to pick up one of those.

Oh and what's the deal with people who carry a crashpad and then wear a backpack over their chest? I feel like that's wrong on so many levels.

While I get you can't really stop the deterioration of plastic and sew that shit back on... I gotta give props to Bug for his style. Welcome back ya bastich!!1

My pad of choice in Europe has been the Ocun Paddy Incubator. It is the best shape and size for single coverage or going up high with a sketchy spot (i think you meant health insurance policy, darling... no, no i meant LIFE insurance policy, she replies). It's the best pad to sleep on hands down. It is also a dream to carry. But the taco/hinge design that enables it to be long and thick and luxurious and also easy to carry -- plus fit in a touring car -- means it doesn't hold much. It holds a down jacket or a towel or maybe a pair of shoes. I have to carry a messenger bag to supplement it.

Now that I live here I have acquired some smaller pads and no way am I passing up the opportunity to cinch the messenger bag down in the organic pad lol... wtf kids today...
