Hi everybody,

what about another game?

What do you carry in your luggage that's maybe unusual or maybe funny to carry on a trip?

I start with this one:

I am going on a trip and taking
always a new toothbrush on its original packaging with me.

What about you?

Ever since airport security got really chaotic after 9/11, I leave my toiletries (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, razor, etc.) at home, and buy what I'll need for the trip once I land at my destination.
About the only thing I bring that is constant (besides clothes) is a book, or two.

I carry a back-pack with me with various stuff on it from an external drive with all my files to a pair of hotel slippers and a lot of things in between. I am trying to bluff Murphy law being always prepared in case I lose a checked bag. So far it has worked I have lost twice my bags within a year (actually temporary bags were under extended care of the airline and returned to me a day or two late).

Lately I go the other-way around I walk into the aircraft with just mobile, wallet, a power bank in my pockets and the keys hang from an aviation lanyard and that includes airlines charging for checked bags.


Maybe we should start a thread about what we carry along our keys

3 lanyards (2 airlines , one cruise company)
1 ,"follow me" tag from my local airport
1 "follow me" tag & B747 on backside
1 "remove before flight" tag from airline which went bankrupt 2017
1 "remove before flight" tag from another airline which went bankrupt in 2019
various (3-6) coin shaped cart chips for grocery shopping...

I used to have on my keys a remove before flight from a AF unit. The lanyard is civil aviation related, a flash light, and a USB with critical documents and the keys from my home and my parents place. I would try to find a remove before flight key ring from a local Search and Rescue Unit and Anna if I ever work for an airline you would be the last person to have RBF keyholder from the airline I work for.

Having said that I have a mouse pad with an A321 of a European airline nobody believed it would shut down.

OK there is a suspected correlation between my RBF tags and the bankruptcies of the airlines they are from. Interesting theory...

Once I received an email explaining that flash-lights are containers used for storing empty /discharged batteries. I made a policy to always check the batteries when I see a flash light in my place. Upside I know they work downside it risks to empty the battery before its time.

DazzlingAnna may I recommend to check those pens as not to let the ink dry?
