Do I need to get a life?

One of my favorite things to do in a drug store is to cruise the 'travel size' area looking for products I can use backpacking. You see to the left my latest find... Colgate Wisp, the mini toothbrush. The orange brush is your standard toothbrush, weighing in at .2 ounces. The cute blue one didn't even tip my scale on the gram setting so I would venture to say it is pretty light. For the first use there is even a dab of tooth paste in the center (the blue stuff). In addition, as if this wasn't groovy enough, it's got a rubbery, toothpick kind of thing on the other end! How cool is that?

Some people use a kind of toothbrush that you slip over one finger and they brush their pearlies that way but frankly, I don't like putting a dirty backpacker finger (mine) in my mouth at the end of the day. Yuck!

The simplest things are so fun sometimes.


  1. Darling little thing. Shelly did you see the 18 oz. ( is that right?) backpacking chair in the REI catalog. Maybe you need one?

  2. Hi sweetie! I didn't see it but 18oz is too much weight to take on a lengthy backpack trip. When I'm not walking I'm in the sack so not much time for lounging. However it looks like a perfect chair for less strenuous ambles... What is the name of said chair? I'll look it up. Thanks for thinking of me.
