On one trip, Mr. unilaterally decided not to pack the camcorder. This was back then when cell phones did not have fancy camera. Before the small flip phones also. About 2 hours from home, after done torturing my own mind about did I switch off all stoves, iron, lock back door, unplugged hair dryer .... I happened to ask if he had packed the spare battery of camcorder, he said did not pack camcorder itself. I blew a valve. As it turned out, we went on so many hikes in that trip that we couldn't have lugged around the heavy analog camcorder anyway. And bonus: the rustic cabin had wi-fi in the lobby. Remains a sweet memory and reminder that it is the moments that matter, not the photographs. No wi-fi in room is good but wi-fi nearby in lobby is bliss.
