MizzEve, we just bought a Bialetti pot like NYC suggested. It is so fast and very easy. For about $15-$17.00 for a 3 cup (espresso cups that is). Fill up the plastic cup provided with water and pour it into the bottom half of the pot (it unscrews). Place course ground cofee in the place provided, screw it together, place it on a heat source and in about 3 minutes you'll have wonderful coffee.

I have a couple compasses which were really cheap and I think I just picked up at a dime store or something. They are not heavy duty REI type things, just cheap plastic -- I keep one in my car in case I sort of get lost. I think I may have bought them at a travel bookstore, actually -- one of those Rand McNally places. Those places are good for a lot of this kind of stuff, as well as the gadget dept. of any AAA travel store (which is where I got my 220V immersion coil for boiling water).

I think I took my compass on a trip once but never used it, actually (I carried it in my purse). First, I have a good sense of direction, but more important, it is easier to orient yourself by tall landmarks than just compass points, in my experience, and they have more meaning anyway.

I agree with everyone else that these other things you just put in small plastic travel bottles yourself from your big bottles. You can buy 1 oz plastic bottles at drug stores and supermarkets. I would never pack liquid fabric softener when you can take those sheets. If you can't find travel bottles of Febreeze, I suggest you look in the cosmetic dept of Target, etc, as that's where they sell those little refillable bottles.

My coworker suggested buying the immersion coil at AAA and use it with a press pot. Now I have to find a cheap press pot........
