    This is the one I use: TravelHoop with Strap I mostly hoop around the waist, but I can hoop around the hips and over my head. I can also do squats and lunges while hooping.

    OK, we need a link to that travel hula! I guess you're not just hula-ing with it around the hips? ;-)

    Also, I wear a mood ring for my wedding band when we camp. That way the kids can see at a glance if Mom needs "alone time."

    LOVE the story of the wedding ring with good mojo. How lucky you are to have two good choices!

    Great question, Lani! I mentioned in that 3D thread that in my travel journals, I paste a little color copy of my son's "travel angel" that he drew for me when he was 4. Despite all my electronics, I need a small paper journal.

    The unusual item I travel with is someone else's wedding ring. My husband made my wedding ring for me, and I don't want to lose it or shear off one of the stones. So I leave it at home. My husband (who was raised in his dad's rock/jewelry shop) had an old white-gold band in his stock of scrap gold that fits me just right. It's well-worn, and super comfy to wear. The band is getting quite thin on the edges - someone wore that band for a very long time. It has good mojo.

    On my next trip I will be traveling with a small Travelocity roaming gnome. He was a gift from a work friend who talks with me about The Amazing Race weekly. I'm going to snap some photos of him in various places, similar to what a lot of people do with block clowns, stuffed animals, etc.

    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. ;-)
