There's a million of these types of threads but, what can I say? I love them! Especially when there's some new members who can throw in their thoughts.

The Situation

You're leaving your house to go travel the world. You're never coming back. And you also know there will be no magic shops (or Internet) where you're going. But there will be many people who would love the joy of magic that you can provide. All your other pockets, backpack, etc. are used up for supplies but you have 1 single front pants pocket devoted to magic. Nowhere else.

What do you bring?


Jamie D. Grant:

A deck of cards (hundreds of effects)
An Industrial Revelation (my signature effect)
3 feet of rope (for Richard Sanders Fiber Optics)
10 Yellow #19 Elastic Bands (CMH and a bunch of others)
5 Spongeballs
Micro Chop Cup (from RNT2)
4 Coins and 1 Jumbo
Maybe Whitestar if it fits?
A pen with cap.

Hmmm. Not sure what else will fit. I'm actually going to go try it, lol.
TRICK OF THE YEAR: Industrial Revelation, BOOK OF THE YEAR: The Approach, The AIP Bottle, and my new book Scenic 52, can all be found over here:

A piece of rope and something to cut it with - assuming that ropes/strings/grapevines/etc and knives/scissors/cutting implements are not available on my travels
Three shells and enough peas to lose a few along the way - assuming that bottle caps/real shells/small bowls/etc and sponges/pieces of cotton/etc are not available on my travels

A TT and a silk
A leather c--- cup and two balls - one gaffed
A set of sponge bunnies which will soon wear out but I'll enjoy them while they last.

I have also used my cup with one ball gaffed but it appears you may have tried it with two balls gaffed. What are the advantages to both balls gaffed?

Thank you

As a kicker- in my back pocket I happen to have my Real Man's Wallet Smile I know it's cheating, but I would have my wallet! lol I won't get into what else I'd have in there because I really don't want to derail this thread. Sorry...

P.S. I go there hoping they have rope!

1 Red-back Deck of Cards
1 Blue Sharpie
1 Blue-backed Card
1 Half Dollar
2 English Pennies
1 Jumbo Half
1 TT
1 Bill (any denomination)

This should all fit in a reasonable pocket. (If you have an unreasonable pocket, then just negotiate with it.)

When I travel I usually were combat trouser and to be honest I like to keep my wallet in one button pocket and my passport in the other. My side pockets empty for those things you pick up on the way snacks and books. When I traveled across Spain and India I travel with in a 25L day pack and a small shoulder bag.

In this I had,
Egg bag,
Fiber Optics,
Sponge balls and purse frame,
2 Decks of cards,

This would all fit in the large pockets but I carry it in my pack.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!
