Same here. Always. In fact, travel seem to be the only circumstance where

Sorry, my mistake here. I meant the Palm Universal _Wireless_ Keyboard,
which works over IR.
Clearly you also used your LifeDrive to compile this list... *smile*
No, I just have a very very _very_ good memory ;-)
Consider a battery extender. I once looked into it, but gave up the idea. It
would have gotten used only a few times a year so it was not worth the
I purchased a AA-powered battery loader from Boxwave, but it didn't
reach me yet. That said, since we came back to the hotel every evening,
it was not really necessary to have one. I guess I'll rather use it next

So, I hope that this report is useful to other travellers. I loved to
have my LD with me during this trip. It worked excellently, and together
with the keyboard, works better than a laptop for a leisure trip (and

Definitely. In fact, when I bought a new computer on Friday I made the bold

Palm simply makes the laptop far less necessary.
That's true. And it's a good surprise, considering that it's the first
PDA I own which really can replace a laptop, at least during trips.
Before that I had a Palm Professional, a Palm IIIx and a Clié NR70V, but
all were too limited (connection-wise, memory-wise...) to fully replace
Thanks for sharing. It is interesting to see how others take advantage of
mobile computing while away. Just remember that vacations are supposed to
/avoid/ us messing about with technology.
My pleasure. I thought in the contrary that holidays were the only time
where I really have time to play ;-)
