Subject: Re: One thing you must have
Hi, Tom and Ziners:

The one thing I wouldn't travel without is my combination alarm clock/sleep machine. It is very compact and takes just 2 C batteries. Besides showing me the time and waking me up, it also functions as a sleep machine which blocks out noise when you're try to sleep. You can choose from different sounds like rain, waves, waterfall, etc. If you are rooming with a snorer, it helps with that; or, elevator and people sounds outside your door; ship cabin creaking or anchor sounds; airplane noise if you're staying near an airport; etc. I just couldn't travel without it. And since you don't plug it in, you don't need to worry about the current or finding an outlet near your bed.
