Are you saying you don’t like my drool????

It's not the drool so much as it's the head sweat stains, bloody noses, and other, uh...secretions.

Luckily, the majority of downtown hotels should be much cleaner places.

Im sure hotels make sure the linens are clean as possible cause i sure they know people can be pretty fussy about stuff and some do complain or b***h about stuff they think should be a certain for what they paying to stay at the place anytime. if anything u can always bring ur own pillowcase and put it on the pillow with a case already on it so it double layer and not gotta worry about anything or just remove case altogether and use ur own lol.

I fly in from Hawaii on an overnight flight. I take those re-wrapped blankets from the plane and use them to sit on the ground when waiting in line. I used to be a flight attendant, only my butt goes on those blankets.

I hope everyone sees one and buys one so I'm not the only weirdo with a third leg.

This is awesome. This is like one of those simple inventions that make me think "Why couldn't I think of this?"

Do any vendors sell poster tubes at CCI? I’m having trouble finding a big enough diameter for Mondo print.

They give out a lot of free ones, but you’re going to need a fairly wide diameter tube for the Mondo print.

It's probably been said, but a phone/tablet portable charger is a must. And spend the money for a good one. I have 2 that don't need recharging for 2 weeks.  I've actually been using one of them the last two days that I haven't recharged in about 2 months and it still charges my phone up for a full day.  It's not necessary, but I take both to SDCC and just switch them out, carry one one day then the other the next etc.

And carry a non-bulky cross body bag to panels that will hold your essentials. Big bookbags are too cumbersome and annoying in crowds.

Ohhhh, do you have a link for your portable charger? Or the name of it? I've been looking for a good one.

I don't know how much you're willing to spend, but have you tried an art supply store? They sell poster tubes that are big enough for things like blue prints and maps.

I used a crossbody bag my 1st year going to CC.... it killed my shoulders! Kept switching it from one side to another; it didn't help. I went with a backpack and haven't had any issues since.
