What is the *ONE* "unusual" item you always travel with?
So I was reading the "3D clear organizer cube" thread and Frank II mentioned that he packs a telescoping backscratcher. Not something most people would think to carry, but one of those "I wish I had one" type things.
Similarly, when I travel, I always pack a Japanese Salux wash cloth. It's simply the best scrub cloth in the entire universe (in my opinion) and also indestructible. I can't imagine showering without one of these, and I'm astounded that people can feel clean by just using a plain wash cloth.
So... does anyone else here have any special items they like to take with them? Maybe it's something you don't really need, but it means something special to you. Maybe it's a small picture frame with your loved ones that you can put on your night stand. Maybe it's prayer beads so you can meditate and have some quiet time each day on your trip. Maybe a special mascot?
Or maybe you take something that's very practical but something most people wouldn't think to pack. I know Jodi from Legal Nomads like to pack a doorstop, for example.
Any other special items?
...and no. Tom Bihn bags do not count. We already assume you use them. ;-)
