Carry Your News in Style
With a news travel bag, you can take your entire life experience into your own hands. If you’ve ever been in a situation where a breaking news story may have a profound effect on your life or the lives of others, you know that not being able to react quickly enough can mean life or death for you. Here are some tips and tricks to making sure you’ll be able to react quickly when a news story breaks about any situation, place, or person.
First, get a good news travel bag. It should include at least two pieces of newsprint, a flashlight with extra batteries in case of emergency, and a portable news flash. There are several different styles of flashlights designed for different purposes, but a general one with a long cord and a light in the end will work for a flash. You can also get news print that already comes out to use on a flash. You need a large enough news travel bag so that all of your materials can be easily contained within it.
The next thing you’ll need to do is to make sure that your news travel bag has room for your newsprint. There is not going to be any room for error when you are so spread out in front of your computer and phone that you can miss the front page of a newspaper. Be sure to leave at least two inches between the front and back of the bag and the actual edges of the newsprint. You don’t want to be carrying a half-size piece of newsprint the entire time. This could result in your bag becoming uncomfortably heavy.
Finally, be sure to pack plenty of water and food into your news travel bag as well. If you aren’t going more than a couple of hours away from home, you won’t want to go starve or suffer from dehydration. In order to prepare yourself for a long drive, you may find that it’s best to eat meals before you leave and snacks around an hour before you leave. This way, you won’t have to worry about starving yourself before your trip and you can have something to nibble on before your long car ride. A little fuel and energy source will go a long way when you’re dealing with long distance car travel.
A good news travel bag should not cost too much. You probably don’t need the most expensive or latest model. The most important factor should be how safe your news collection is. With the rising threat of crime across the country, you want to be able to bring your news wherever you are going.
That means your news travel bag should be easy to carry. It shouldn’t weigh too much, but it should also not be too light. Too light and it will fall over and break. On the other hand, too heavy and it will be difficult to carry and could result in fatigue and a lot of trouble getting to your destination. Your news travel bag should be designed for your convenience and comfort.
