I've had to buy enough crappy, overpriced phone chargers at airports that I now have a dedicated charger (including a car adapter) just for my travel bag. Along with the toiletries.

Yeah, as in you get a trip notification, and then you grab your already packed suitcase from out of your closet and go.

Does anyone here do this?
I don't really travel for work much, but for personal travel rather than a paper checklist I have a Google spreadsheet called "Packing Lists". It has different tabs depending on the type of travel: "International", "Beach", "Work". I cross items off as I pack and when I'm done I just clear out the changes I made and it's good to go for the next time

I've thought about having an emergency bag ready in case I ever have to execute my exfil plan. The closest I've ever gotten to that is just having a 2nd change of clothes at any game I officiate, which has come in handy for someone else who happens to forget something (provided they can squeeze into clothing my size).

this. I have a nice nightgown I bought in Quebec. But I rarely forget anything I need. Work has never required sudden travel, though. I've only done sudden, unexpected travel for a funeral.

I leave civilization annually, and do have a list for this. It includes things like "swim flippers", in addition to the usual.

I also have a set of travel electronics. I keep them next to my European plug adaptors and passport.

If you are frequently in this situation, then of course you should have a bag ready.
Why bother asking the rest of us, though?
