So I got this new hat, and I think it's pretty neat. It's a Tarp Hat from a company called The Real Deal and it's made from the recycled tarpaulins of Brazilian cargo trucks that have traveled from the Amazon to Sao Paolo and back again. It's sturdy and has a nice wide brim, which is why I like it, as I'll take as much sun protection as I can get.

We'd be lost without Google Docs. From piecing together itineraries to storing flight times and phone numbers, it's a central part of our non-stop trip planning.
The only bad part is that you have to be online to use it. Well, that was the bad part. Starting today, the Google overlords will be rolling out offline access to some lucky users. (It should be out for everyone by mid-month.)
The tech stuff that makes it work is actually pretty interesting, at least to web dorks like us. But more importantly, you'll now be able to access your stuff while stuck at an airport that still doesn't have free WiFi.
The Gorillapod is a 6-inch tall, flexible tripod that can be wrapped around stationary objects and set up on uneven terrain. It's not for a high-end photographer, but at $22 it seems like a great piece of gear for getting a bird's-eye view and for getting a few less smudged-looking vacation shots.
