Re: Hauling gear around a NANOG meeting

Dave as in David D has spent TOO much time in NY.
I gave basic smart tips for any big city. Just wear a Telx hat and
you are safe. That is like the crips there in NY. Lots of respect from
the gangs. Otherwise no one can make bets with their bookie, fo'get
Enjoy your travels everyone! Come early, stay long, network with all!
The Host of Nanog43 in The City!

We're in the Marriot, not a crack house. And it's NYC, not Sao
Paolo. I think my friend Dave needs to actually spend some time in
New York City. :).
Don't buy any bridges. And if you're driving, stay off the cross
Bronx Expresseway. It's moidah during rush hour.

I've not been to the conference myself, but I hear laptop and charger
is a good plan.
Following the advice of our host, David Diaz (Telx), care should be
exercised to make sure your laptop bag does not have the text "LAPTOP"
printed on it, as that would make it a target for thieves.
Additionally, don't wear white iPod earbuds, as that will likely lead
to you getting mugged on the subway, or zapped by lightning in Central

Looking for some advice for a first-timer.
What are your recommendation regarding gear?
- laptop and charger only
- laptop with small bag
- the whole normal kit&caboodle, wheeled backpack thing
