Can I join in? I'm a '72 baby but I am married to a Chuck also! Can that count?

Will go back & check out the PTR in a few. Doesn't everyone take that many movies on a car trip?

(My cousin owns a chain of restaurants and due to popular demand, he had to reinstall the paper towels along side the blow dryer one.)

I had to use one to dry my top in an airport back in 2003 when I spilled tea right before boarding a plane and I thought that thing was going to blow me across the room!!
I love the guy in the video I linked to - he acts like his hands are going to be sucked into the dryer!

After doing a little research, I guess these dryers have been around for quite a few years, but I think as everyone is trying to "Go Green" now, they're becoming more popular. According to the site I found, it only takes 10 - 15 seconds to dry your hands using one of these machines and it uses 80% less energy than the older hand dryers.

Wow - never knew we'd all learn so much about hand dryers in this report!

Another Chuck! That's at least three dhs named Chuck in here - this could get confusing.

Glad to have you join us Kayte (is that pronounced Kate or Katie?).

Glad you started, looking forward to more.

I love those hand dryers!! I'm too impatient to stand around waiting for the regular kind to dry my hands. They have them at the new movie theater near us. Don't they blow the water off? I don't remember them sucking - and actually I remember how gross the wall looked under the dryers from all the water. My kids don't like them at all - too loud!

That's hilarious that someone actually posted a video on youtube!

Off to a great start so far - I hope the migraine cleared up before you had to run from the tornado!

I find those blow dryers funny! But did not know they could blow at 400mph....crazy!

I have those same crocs and that red color nailpolish looks great with them. Will have to remember that for summer!

Everyone's going to start getting pictures and videos of themselves using one of those dryers!

Yeah - I guess they are blowing air, not sucking. My bad. And they ARE loud!

Thanks! I love the Cleo Crocs. They're so comfy and they don't really look like Crocs.

Tell Sully to feel better, too! DD has some kind of stomach bug--both ends.

Now that you mentioned the dryers that blow really hard, I think we encountered one in SC. I remember because I was in shock watching the skin on my hand blow in waves-- I thought "OMG, this makes me look like I have my grandma's hands already!"

I hate those kinds of bugs!

Yes! Skin blowing in waves is exactly right.

Who knew I'd get an education in hand-dryer technology on your TR?? And they say we "waste" our time on the DISboards...please...it's like a continuing education course! Do we get credits for this Carissa?

Yes! You get travel credits. At the end of this report you may turn your credits in and receive a "I'm a World Traveler" certificate.

No - there was nothing ahead that would cause the traffic to stop, which is why we think the police car was just keeping traffic back for someone or something up ahead. After just a short while, he pulled off and we were able to go normal speed again.

I think I first encountered those dryers at SciFi Diner or some place else at WDW. I love them. They save the environment, but what are they doing to our hearing. They are so loud.

By the way, would you think it was strange to watch someone carry a camera into a rest stop bathroom? But as I am typing this, my camera is always around my neck when I go in the bathroom at WDW.

I want a pair of those Crocs. Need to keep an eye out for them.

Sorry Sully is sick. Hope he gets to feeling better soon.

Sorry about your migraine!! Not fun at all. Hope it didn't last too long.

Ahhh, I have NOT seen the Xlerator BUT I did see the Dyson Airblade last time I flew out of Providence/Green Airport.......that was so wicked cool. Sounded like one of the PLANE's engines when it started up....about 3 seconds later your hands are completely DRY!
