My little business travel trick.

I travel a lot for work. In fact, I am flying from Milwaukee to Miami right now. As we all know, 9/11 made travel tougher on all of us. Especially if you travel with liquids. Or have feet.

I own an advertising and idea agency called The Weaponry.  Which means I am in the business of coming up with ideas that solve problems.  But sometimes the problems I solve are my own.

One of my problems is that I have long hair. Not like Crystal Gale. But long for a guy. My hair also has some curl to it that turbocharges in high humidity. You know, like the kind of humidity I wil find this afternoon in Florida.

So, I am embarrassed to say, I need me some hair products when I travel. But none of my stash comes in airport-legal bottles of 3.5 ounces or less.

The Solution

Contact cases.

When I am only traveling for a night or two I use contact cases and fill the wells with the daily dose of whatever liquids I may need:

  • Styling gel
  • Leave in conditioner
  • Wash-out conditioner
  • Contact solution
  • vodka
  • Tears of a mermaid

These little cases help me travel lighter and quicker.  Because these liquids are not in big bottles I don’t need to check a bag. Because they are not in small bottles I don’t need to put them in a ziplock bag, and then remove them when I go through security.

Try this contact case trick the next time you are traveling. Just make sure to keep your cases straight. I don’t want you to be mad at me when you put vodka soaked contacts in your eyes before you big meeting.

Safe travels.
