Weight Watcher's Equipment Guide - Ground Effect
For two or three day mountain bike trips the trick is to take the least amount of stuff that you can safely get away with. This invariably means omitting a few comforts but is a worthy sacrifice... tackling wonderful singletrack while being loaded like a packhorse is not a good time.

Opinion | Alan Krueger’s Two Lessons - The New York Times
The first lesson that Alan gave me comes from a finding that sounds a bit like a letdown: People waste a lot of money on gifts. In particular, surveys show that gift recipients don’t have much use for many objects that they receive. They usually appreciate the thought behind the gift, but the actual item isn’t of much value to them. In economic terms, they place a lower value on the gift than it cost.

But experiences are different. When someone receives an experience — say, a nice meal out — they often both appreciate the thought and enjoy the actual gift.

The second lesson involves spending time with friends. It’s one of the best ways to increase happiness, according to the survey data.

Alan said this finding had stayed with him. At the end of a long day or long week, he said his instinct was sometimes to skip a social gathering. In the moment, he felt too tired. But the data had persuaded him to push through his fatigue more often. Sure enough, he was almost always glad he had, he said. When I’m debating whether to make the effort to get out of the house and see other people, I often think of Alan.
