Fellow Traveler: Santa

See what St. Nick is packing.

It's a busy time of year for frequent flyer Santa. Not only does he have to deliver the goods to the world's children, Santa has to think as much about how much gear to carry with him on his yearly circumnavigation around the globe, so as not to weigh down his reindeer. Luckily, Santa packs fairly light, keeping it streamlined with a kazoo (for reindeer communication, natch), compass, and of course, his "Naughty or Nice" list.
