I'm getting excited. Tonight is my last night in a hotel. I have stayed at nine hotel/motels in the last three weeks as well as a couple of friends houses along the way. I though I would take a moment to list out some of the items that I like to keep at hand to make the travels smooth.
These items are in no specific order but just items I like to have in my bag.
|Cable management straps|
A must on every electrical cable, made with Velcro
My Droid Dock
My alarm clock holder and night light (NightClock app)
|Mini Power Strip|
The plugs are always behind the nightstand. UGGGG!
|Snack Bar, Chop Sticks, Plastic Fork and napkins|
|Post It Notes and Butterfly Clips|
|Flashlight in case the power goes out|
To keep the noise out. If it isn't drunk people coming back from the Casino at 4am, it is the basketball practice happening in the room above mine or railroad trains going past your window. Yes you can complain, but sometimes all they do is make more noise.
Items not pictured: If I am driving and have room in the car, my polar fleece blanket (to keep warm at night) and a neck pillow, used to keep my head propped up while driving or used as a half donut to help relieve all the pains in the backside while sitting.
Final Tip of the trip: If you have a room that smells, open up a package of coffee that the hotel provides in the room and set the bag in front of the heater vent, this will improve the smell of the room or absorb some of the odors. Also works well for rental cars that have been smoked in.
Good night from The Dalles!
