One thing I try to always carry in my daypack is an inflatable Gertie Ball. It packs down small once the air is released, is easy to blow up, and durable enough to withstand a lot of abuse.
Carrying a Gertie Ball makes any town square or piazza into a playground. Could the kids look any happier? On our best days, local kids end up joining them and often, even a passing adult will get in on the action.Related Links
