  1. Take toilet paper with you wherever you go. China in particular.
    And a multi tool of some kind, something with a knife and pliers in it. I have a nice SOG. I mean… Unless everything you are taking is a carry on, then no knives.

    • Thanks for the info Andy, we will definitely take that into consideration! We have a small item that can do some different tasks, but a tool with a knife would be beneficial I’m sure. We are doing some checking and carry-on, so having a knife included might be an issue. We’ll keep you posted!
