You might not want to travel at all, then.

Thanks for the good posts. Just realized I'm a neurotic foot-flushing fool! Yep, I'm the one that takes the last towel in the bathroom even when my hands are dry, so that I don't touch the doorknob. Sorry to all of you that came in after me. There was supposed to be a smiley face inserted after my comment but apparently I can't do that on this computer. Sorry, it was intended to be lighthearted.

The smilies don't show up to the right of your posting box?
Ah well, no great harm done, regardless.
I'm not exactly thrilled to have to think about bedbugs, either.

I carry a silk sleeping bag liner with me on all of my trips. Weighs 4 oz.

BlueWillowPlate: Smilies show up but this is the 5th laptop in 4 yrs., so I never know what will happen. Sometimes it is a happy surprise and sometimes it is a horrible thing.

Chielgirl, I didn't include it in my other post but I used to carry my own pillow and sheets - and then wash and donate them to the animal shelter - after having a job that required a LOT of travel.

So, yes, I remain the one that leaves you without the towels.

So ashamed

Just tried a new face insert and it doesn't show in the preview of the post. Oh well, at least you get my sentiment.

I forgot all about those, and I even used to have one. I think it was called a Dream Sack.
Of course, on my next trip I'll have a husband with me, and I know there's no way he'll use one, so it's sort of a moot point.

I got mine when I lived in Asia. In fact I bought 30 of them. I send them to my friends who go downrange with the military. Large/long in Asian is medium for we swarthy USians.
