Category: Equipment

The equipment section is here to show my own ideas, some of them might be crazy, but they work for me.

I have one thing in common with Sir Richard Branson. We have the same numbers on out bank statements, the only difference being is that my statements must be read backwards, his zeros are before the coma and mine after, so my kind of budget will require a lot of adaptation, invention and compromise. I hope some of my ideas might be inspiration for those who are financially where I am.

Finally I want to add that all opinions on this section are totally subjective, adapting my solutions might be uncomfortable and sometimes painful and the author does not take any responsibility for them. All opinions are current, however the author reserves the right to change or reject them completely next day.

I use it sleeping in Polish mountains for few nights at the end of the March. I was there with some soldiers and my bag was so good that it didn’t came back with me, but I came back with some extra cash in my wallet.
