Carry On Luggage


We've all read or heard the news about all the snow stranding travelers in airports. Do you travel with some helpful items in your carry on luggage?

I'm not advocating a HUGE carry on like some people try to stuff in the overhead bin. I'm talking about a few necessary items that could help you get through a few hours of delay time.

Pack a few granola bars or a bag of almonds. Include some 3 ounce items in a resealable bag...hand sanitizer, lotion, lip balm, toothpaste. Make sure your cell phone includes your airline's phone number or web site. Include the charger for your cell phone. Toss in a deck of cards or a magazine. Add or wear a shawl that could double as a blanket or pillow.

Think about what would be useful to you in case you need to chill out in an airport for a few hours.

This may not help if you are stranded for days on end...but could help for a shorter amount of time. What would you take?
