DAY 1 - The X Desk! Packing Success!

First, my bag is packed, and it only took two days and a shoehorn! I'm ready for a two year trip.

But how do you pack a desk-top computer shelf in a backpack!?

Introducing the X-Desk, a revolutionary design by me and the guy next door.

My neighbor Paul (whose garage has every tool known to man), helped be build this awesome computer riser so my computer's at the right height. The mouse and a portable keyboard go below the raised computer so you don't have to worry about neck strain. The desk has no moving parts and simply locks into place by pushing the grooves together to form an X. Upright it gives 11 inches higher viewing. On its side, it gives 7 and a half inches height. Best of all, when you're done, It fits inside a backpack.

And just in case you're wondering, below is my Mood-O-Meter.


  1. call Shark tank - maybe you can sell this idea :)

    1. Glad you think it's genius. Want to back me as an investor?

  3. What is this "shark tank" of which you speak? Is it Top Chef for inventors?
