about the best use for duct tape is to make emergency repairs to whatever, suitcases, clothing, to stop things that go bump in the night, etc.

Duct tape is the force that holds the universe together and wd-40 keeps it spinning.

I've never brought any--if something requires duct tape, I'm fairly certain that the maintenance dept. will have some I can use!

Thanks, I know I've seen it on lists that say it's a MUST....but I cannot figure out why. If ya'll don't take any and get by, it must NOT be a must...lol :eek:

Roll a few feet around a piece of plastic- I use an used gift card.
Good for a bunch of things:

Ripped suitcase,
emergency clothing repair(actually used to fix hem once)
Help wrap gifts for flight home
general repairs- you would be surprised how it comes in handy

We have always found someone with tape when we couldn't take any ourselves.

I heard the balcony doors won't stay open on thier own. You could use duct tape to hold it open. Use it to hold the blinds closed, fix luggage holes, make a jumprope, whatever. It is very strong and sticky.

I mostly bring it because if your luggage meets with unfortunate baggage handlers, it comes in very handy.

When the airline ripped up my hangup bag-I wished I had brought duct tape.

Instead of a whole roll, just roll up a small portion (3'-5') on a fountain pen or small dowel. That way it will fit easier in your suitcase or carryon baggage!

Although I would not bring any tape, Gorilla tape is way better than duct tape.

Sorry for the late reply....
Would have loved to make any of the games - BUT - My summer work prevented that. Being a Summer Camp Director for the Boy Scouts runs from May 31 to Aug 10 and just could not get away.

Folks, we buy brightly colored duct tape, and tape a pattern on our suitcases/bags, etc. So when disembarking they are easy to find, snatch, and get in line for customs...think about it!;)
