Pile Of Loot

So here is what I managed to accumulate at the hurricane conference. There was a small trade show that was part of the event. Now I like trade shows. There is usually cool shit to look at. And if the trade show is half way decent - there are always free handouts.

This is what I got!

1 - portable water jug. It is called a Bagula. It was invented by someone who went to a disaster to distribute water. The people had nothing suitable to put the water into. The Bagula is a thick plastic bag. They are cheap to produce, light, an ass load of them can be transported easily, and they hold around 4 gallons each.

1 - magnetic hurricane tracking map with clip on dry erase marker

1 - calendar good till 2010, or the end of the world / humanity. Whichever comes first.

1 - Bamaco Inc hat. They sponsored the show or some shit

5- tote bags!

5 - 2 ounce packages of "Bayou Bang Dry Rub" seasoning

1 - thing that looks like a smurf size backpack. I am not really sure what the hell it is for but it was free. I am thinking cell phone holder??? Stash pouch??

3 - flashlights. 2 of them are ultra cheap lights that take AA batteries and use a standard bulb. The other one is actually a 5 LED light that is bright for something that uses three AAA batteries.

2 - neck lanyard ID clip things - one has an additional retractable ID clip on the end of the lanyard. I can also remove the retractable thing and just use that if I want.

1 - poncho in a bag.

1 - sewing kit

1 - 8 inch / 20 cm straight edge WITH a calculator. Solar powered, with battery backup

1 - key chain measuring tape thing

1 - DOUBLE LED key chain light

1 - single LED key chain liight that is also a bottle opener

1 - cheap ass non LED key chain light

1 - plastic letter opener

2 - Sharpie marker size spray hand sanitizer things. I can refill them when they are empty. Hand sanitizer was a big thing there. Something about a flu going around???? I was not really paying attention

5 - pens

1 - rubber ball like thing that bounces in random directions. It is not really a ball - it is made of solod rectangles attached to make a cube. Makes an OK cat toy

1 - light up LED ball surrounded in what looks like a giant soft rubber sand spur. When you throw it the LEDs inside the ball light up.

Not too bad really. The trade show portion was not that big.

I am done with the conference till next year . If I go.

17 days remain till Hurricane Season 2009.

What no cool "I went to the annual hurricane conference and all I got was this lousy t-shirt"? Cheap bastards!

Fuzz - there is a reason why people go to trade shows.

Dusty - I still have much to learn. Someone else in the same training class I was in easily got twice as much stuff. There were some items I did not take because I did not want them. A true master takes all he/she sees. I am but an apprentice.

Beach Bum - I got two shirts. Of course I had to pay for them - so that does not exactly count as "free". In fact it is the exact opposite of free. But they are nice shirts. I got a long sleeve denim shirt and a short sleeve "moisture wicking" white polo shirt.

I also bought a "cheeseburger" for $8 on Tuesday that was burnt. The guy operating the grill needed some better training.
