What To Pack for Full-Time Travel: Tech List
Our most important and difficult category: tech! This is what keeps us traveling because it is how we make money. We carry a lot of tech and probably always will. We have at least half of a checked bag just for tech items and we carry a lot in our backpack also.
Just as a reminder, our checked luggage that we love is these Thule bags.
LAN cable. This has come in handy many times. Chris’ computer doesn’t have the strongest wifi card, but is incredible otherwise. He always tries to hard-line into the internet, especially for work calls. Sometimes the plug-in is across the Airbnb.
Computer Glasses. Chris has a lot of eye strain after many hours in front of a screen (that is smaller than he would like). These help prevent migraines for him.
Sennheiser headset for work calls. This one is actually out of production, but you can find it on eBay. It has some great noise-cancelling abilities. This helps when kids are screaming in the background OFTEN.
Razor Orbweaver. Ergonomic mechanical keyboard.
Bose Noise-cancelling headsets (both Chris and Leslie have a pair). Work great on the plane for those rare moments we get to be alone mentally :)
Power strip. Super important for how much tech we have! It’s very hard to charge all your gear without one or two of these.
Sony a7RIII Camera. Main picture camera and also for cool slo-mo.
Cannon Mark 7ii Camera. Main vlogging camera.
Various lens filters: Neutral density, UV and night
Large Tripod. Any lightweight one will do.
Extra Macbook for video processing
