What are your C'Hound travel essentials?

I am not talking the drive to resort condo but FLYING and packing light!

wine/beer opener

sharp travel knife (in checked luggage or course)

coffee filters (I use french press at home, but that and coffee grinder do not travel well!) so when I buy ground coffee on location (ie Kona!) I can make my own.

sweetner (sugar/splenda)

a baggie of universal seasoning (sea salt, pepper, herbs) if I am staying in a place with a grill-ie tropical place.

a few high quality paper plates

silverware place setting for 2.

I buy local hot sauce on site

might have missed something, what are yours? and I am talking packing light.

    that other thread is awesome...too funny, I pack zip lic bags too for food storage and picnic packing on vacation. We all think alike I guess.

      I usually bring my percolator and some good coffee if I'm staying in a hotel. If the hotel room has one of those little coffee makers, the coffee is usually vile; and sometimes they don't have one at all. I lived in Portland long enough to become a certified coffee snob--before that canned Folgers or Cain's Hotel & Restaurant Blend was quite adequate, but no more.

        I hope you get lots of good answers to your question. I asked a similar question at this thread:


        I never searched for other threads that might have asked this question, so it's possible that others asked this question before me, too.
