    I haven't been in eons, but my cousin and his wife like the Pod hotels. They're in their 50s and one of them has serious back problems, so if it's comfortable for them, it's probably not too bad.

    Plus one to James Turner for the mention of a spoon. It was a requirement on high school backpacking trips and I keep one in the glove compartment of my car for emergency dives into ice cream pints,...

    I wear a lot of black. I have more black shoes than are useful for one person. But - now that my angsty teen years are well behind me, I rarely do unalleviated black (interior colors don't count)....

    Is there a support group for packing Squibs? Because I would attend those meetings. Especially if there's chocolate. Dairy Milk, anyone?

    I love the colors that Cordura comes in, though I only have one small item actually made of the stuff. I occasionally wish I had been quick enough to get a Curry SCB, and I don't even particularly...

    I had (have?) that book - it was my grandmother's and my college roommate would make the chocolate cake at least once a week. Which is why I'm not sure I still have my copy - I had every intention of...

    I've learned and forgotten Continental twice now. I always feel like I'm trying to write with my wrong hand when I do it, probably because I do everything in spurts and the long breaks don't allow...

    This made me snort into my carrot juice. I know that next time I travel by air I will think exactly that.

    I prefer the "mauled by dogs with flaming teeth" explanation. But yes, damage of that nature does seem to be rare. So far.

    Do not read this thread.

    I haven't checked mine yet, but I wouldn't worry about doing so since it's a lot tougher than any other bag that I have checked. That's my personality, though. If you're...

    That sounds much more interesting and challenging than my upcoming 17 hour layover in Detroit (the joys of using frequent flyer miles). I'm planning to spend a chunk of that time in a hotel,...

    For better or for worse, my thoughts of cleaning out my fabric stash led to the cutting out of a skirt pattern instead and the all-purpose room is now a bigger disaster than it was when I started....

    Tee hee. I've done this to an inside jacket pocket. I used a knitting stitch marker as an o-ring which wasn't a bad idea since it's in a black jacket and the white stitch marker shows up in the...

    Thank you everyone! I would definitely go with the 5s if I go with the 5, I guess I should have specified. Software concerns are a reality, though I admire Apple for the mostly-seamless upgrades. I'm...
