I've got a small (roughly like 1ft x 9inchs) dewalt bag with my drill, charger, battery, sawsall, and few other basic tools, I'd like to bring with me soon to keep money coming in. weighs maybe 20lb

any pros and cons from experience?

That highly depends on how you're traveling and what you intend to use it for.

If you're hitch/hopping with a backpack then I'd say hell no. But if you're rubber tramping then its just a matter of usage versus space.

For instance, I used to travel with a tool bag in my van. I have plenty of room for it but I found myself rarely using it and it ended up just taking up unnecessary space so I left it with family.

If it's something you can see yourself using then I say go for it, if not leave it out

I had many tools in my van when traveling and used them to make money/trade and fix the thing. It was definitely worth it to have around imo.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Damn It! I've been thinking and debating about applying for a position as an Amtrash locomotive engineer! They have openings for Salt Lake City, UT and St. Cloud, MN.
