Just a few small things that put me at ease....I do carry some alcohol wipes/Lysol wipes to wipe the tv remote or anything else that may have been touched by 1 million peorple and flip flops for showers. I have a friend who travels with a travel sheet/sleeping sack (look it up on amazon)...I think it’s a bit crazy but it puts her at ease so why not?

It terms of not focusing on it...Honestly there are SO many grosser things you do/touch during the day....a hotel isn’t all that bad 😎

Been traveling for 3 years now but recently it’s just been getting to me. I think it’s because my current project does not have any top tier hotels, so we’re talking more mid-tier inn hotels, and I’ve come across a few complain worthy comforters.

Would love tips and tricks on how others don’t focus on it. Thanks!

General question: is there any certain “rule of thumb” post that you sell to take profiles? I’ve seen some experts (“”) say to always collect at 20% and others say until you see a reason to sell. Asking as rearranged last week and luckily got into the airlines before they exploded and now I’m sitting about 50% up on delta. And after selling Zoom way to early (used to buy my delta), I’m not sure whether to take the cash or let it ride more. This fast a rally makes me think it will plummet soon
