I've reviewed the Travel Tray as a travel tray before, and I wouldn't dream of traveling now without it. I had it with me in Lisbon, doing its usual yeoman thing of corraling my bitty travel goodies, when I broke both leg bones in an unfortunate encounter with a cobblestone pavement.
Some days later, back in the US, it was time for reconstructive surgery. I was packing for the hospital when it dawned on me how useful the Travel Tray might be. So I packed it with my cellphone, handwipes, a pocket comb, my toothbrush and preferred toothpaste, a lip balm, a few pens, a glasses case, and my Kindle, cinched it up, and off we went. Two days in the hospital were made much more comfortable by easy access to my goodies in the Travel Tray. I got to proselytize the nurses and doctors about Tom Bihn, too, so what's not to like?
Since getting home, I'm bed or chair bound for a while yet, but the Travel Tray is a great way to have all my essentials to hand whether in bed upstairs or in chair downstairs.
Now, I'm not suggesting you break your leg just to prove the versatility of the Travel Tray. Consider it proven now. Tough duty, but somebody had to do it.
