How to be remembered during business travel



I saw this on the news tonight, then read about it. Oh. My. God. Think other business travelers will wonder who is in the portable "mini motel" tent? But for $49, it also includes an air mattress, pillow and reading light, fits in a laptop case - and might be a gift for the person you think has everything. And what's the deal with orange? So other travelers won't trip over you?

Thanks for the info. I was wondering what to get you for your birthday.

I used to promise myself that if I was ever "walked" at a hotel, I'd just camp out in the lobby until they gave me a room (which they always have available but don't tell you). This item would have come in handy.

In reality, the one time I was "walked" I didn't protest because my meeting didn't start until noon the next day. The hotel I was sent to (for free) was nicer than the one I had booked.

So, I'll pass on the tent.
