NEW WRINKLE ON CARRY-ON LUGGAGE

Carry-on luggage may be convenient, but trying to fit suits, pants, sport coats, and dresses into a small suitcase means only one thing: wrinkles.
A new company called SkyRoll is changing that with a line of luggage, which borrows the experienced traveler's trick of rolling clothes and applies it to large items like suits and dresses. This patented feature of SkyRoll first appeared in its garment bag that rolls gently around a hollow core.
Up to now the SkyRoll garment bag was the only way to travel without having to fold large clothing. But company designers were just getting started. The latest member of the SkyRoll family combines this rolling concept with the convenience of a standard wheeled suitcase.
Small items (shoes, socks, toiletries) fit in the rolling suitcase in the conventional way, then things really get interesting. Large clothing goes into a detachable garment bag which clips onto and is wrapped around the outside of the suitcase. This allows you to gently roll your suits and dress clothes. A visit to www.skyroll.com shows how it works. The new SkyRoll is available from Magellans Travel Catalog (800-962-4943 or www.magellans.com)

NOW SQUEEZE THIS!

Road travel means there is often not enough time to stop for provisions, and most roadside options are limited to unhealthy, fast-food. When packing the car for a getaway, don't forget to bring along Skippy Squeeze Stix.
Skippy Squeeze Stix are individually wrapped, single-serving tubes of Skippy Peanut Butter. Skippy Squeeze Stix are convenient with no fuss and mess, so they're ideal for enjoyable, on-the-go snacking. Skippy Squeeze Stix are also a good snack option for other travel, including airline and train, as well as bicycle and hiking trips.
Skippy Squeeze Stix are available in two flavors: Creamy Peanut Butter Snack and Creamy Peanut and Chocolate Snack. Skippy Squeeze Stix can be purchased at your favorite grocery store or supercenter for about $2.39 per box.
