    How lucky do you think you can get? I mean, really, it seems excessive - TWO bottles of suntan lotion???

    I have a gig bag with a lot of goodies.

    Strings (and stringwinder, cutters, etc), Picks, 9V Batteries (for acoustic guitar and my fuzz box that needs them), AA Batteries for my wireless mic and guitar packs), Finger Ease/string lubricant, Big Bends Nut Sauce, OneSpot adapter, 2 spare cables (from guitar to pedalboard and pedalboard to amp), spare patch cables for pedals, and some other odds and ends i'm forgetting.

    I always kept $20 tucked away in my case, but that was the days of Motel 6.

    True - my mother always said you should protect a lady from the bright son, but I think she's biased about me.

    I was pretty sure the four dozen condoms where going to be followed by black, silver, and white stage makeup.

    Well I don't have a case or bag because I was dumb and bought my SE at GC, so I just use a pencil case that I got at the milwaukee rally (motorcycles and guitars, heck yeah). I just keep the essentials in it with my books and stuff stacked on my amp.

    In the pouch I just have

    A few packs of strings
    String winder
    Polishing cloth
    Microfiber cloth
    "Precision" screwdriver set (its just really small, nothing really precision about it)
    Wire cutters
    Picks
    Allen wrenches
    And a tremolo bar that I never use... I suppose I could PIF if anyone needs one

    Some day ill get a case or bag and have enough storage to keep all my guitar goodies in 1 place, but I don't travel with it, so its not exactly top priority.

    Acoustic guitar cases: Dunlop Nylon .88 mm picks in Dunlop pick holder, Kyser Quick Change (only in 414CE case, Reunion Blues Wool strap, and a Planet Waves string changer tool

    My gig bag is my van and trailer. Besides playing out I do live sound for other bands and all kinds of odd sound jobs. My gig bag has every cable and adapter known to man as I have found that some people don't have a clue how to prepare to perform in front of an audience. The most difficult job is a county pageant that I do every year, this one can get interesting.
