Yarn opportunities, will you be ready?

Recently, Crochetville asked how we carry our supplies and what we carry them in.  This made me think of the time I was visiting in Seattle, there are times when you travel and don't bring your crochet bag, right.  I then had a yarn opportunity, I took the yarn back to the hotel and had no hooks to play with it with me, (never again), I ran to Joanns and picked up a set of inexpensive hooks. I was then able to go back to the room and swatch, it was like getting a fix, you have the stuff and no way to use it.  I now carry those hooks in every handbag they will fit in. Have you ever been caught off guard with a crochet opportunity, what did you do? Did you have hooks and no, or ran out of yarn??  How often do you travel without your stuff and wish you had brought it??
