After 10 days I returned to the LAX airport. This is what I made sure to have in my Thule backpack that I carried aboard:
A couple of airplane snacks. Apples, lettuce and tomato that I made into a makeshift salad. Produce is priced at a fortune-and-a-half at airports. I like to think ahead and beat them at their own game. (I threw in a can of herring as well...of course. The finest travel food known to Lexkind.)
My toothbrush. Hey, having dirty teeth on a cross country flight is not fun.
Earplugs and earbuds. I want to watch the TV shows onboard, and when I'm sick of them, I want to sleep!
Compex: I made sure to have my Compex muscle stimulator nearby in the Thule backpack. I tried to use it discretely. It was my first, but NOT last time using the Compex on a plane. My legs felt awesome when I landed back in Quebec. The Compex not only helped with recovery, but it kept the blood flowing through my legs during the flight. A new member of my official carry-on family. I made a quick video of me using it...how can you not want one of these puppies!
