As everybody knows,
“A towel ... is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have.”
But what about us terrestrial travellers?
Personally I recently found these unprecedented uses for my towel:
- Since the design is an Australian flag, use it to indicate which tent that “hot Australian hitchhiker” is staying in at a Romanian beach.
- As custom fit pillow & insulation inside my sleeping bag hood that I could manipulate around to cover most of the face opening when the night got too cold, without sacrificing comfort.
- When pre-cooked Turkish truckstop food led to an embarassing situation and I didn't have a change of trousers, I could accept a ride offered by strangers without dirtying the car seat by sitting on my towel.
What indispensable uses have you discovered for your towel that wouldn't've been so easy to solve without it?
