Last month, my college buddy called me with a question about packing for his Southeast Asia trip.
“I’m going to pack real light,” he said.
“Good,” I replied. “That’s crucial.”
“Is there anything I wouldn’t think of that will really make my travels more comfortable?” he asked.
I thought for a moment. A light-bulb went off.
“Yes! Buy a lightweight silk sleeping sack. It takes up no room and is really handy for getting a good night’s sleep in Southeast Asia.”
After 2 weeks of travel in Cambodia that involved boozing in Phnom Penh, exploring deserted island beaches, crashing with a village chief and camping in the jungle, I said goodbye to my college buddy.
“Thanks,” he said. “It was a great trip. And thanks for suggesting that silk sleeping sack. It really did make all the difference.”
