    wanderingeducators.com: Towels: A Traveler’s Best Friend

    I know it seems simple, but many of us DO value towels...be it the thread count/softness for bathing or, as seen in this article MANY other uses!

    At hotels, I often take note of how nice (or not) the towels are...it can really vary...lol

    :)

    " Last minute costume"...this got me thinking. :D

    Towels vary by hotel, brand, but it's an important item which shouldn't be overlooked. Thanks for sharing.

    I also use them for those times when I get caught in the rain while walking/hiking (always have one in my car). A towel is on my packing list for my upcoming trip so I have one in my rental car.

    You can make up for your "sin" of not knowing about Milepoint's most important thread, by either reading it 42 times and posting there 42 times (or both) :D :rolleyes: ;)

    Do both, it brings you / us nearer to PLATINUM status. :D Maybe this "holiest" of all statutes comes with a pack of the "softest" towels? ;)

    hehe. I kind of have to do the latter since there isn't any way to verify that I will have actually read the thread 42 times.

    *turns eyes toward the copy of Hitchhiker sitting on bookshelf*

    Crap--now I want to go read the damn thing again.

    It's getting "itchy" now, of course we on MP believe when you say that you have read the thread at least 42 times, we count your posts too. Douglas would be proud, would he have known about such dedication towards his work.

    Indeed--and given his nature he would have likely spent some time making up (well deserved) jokes about us.
