A wise man once said, "The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page." Well, judging from the nearly 7,000 entries we received for our first-annual Road Warrior Search, it seems a lot of you have scoured the entire library. And could fill tome after tome with your own incredible stories from the road. Be they funny or forlorn, shocking or sentimental, here are some of our favorites.
HIS MEETING MUST HAVE BEEN IN THE UNDERGARMENT DISTRICT
"My suitcases were packed and in the car when my wife came out of the laundry room with some underwear I had forgotten to pack. In my haste to get to the airport, I stuffed them in my attaché case. Later, when I opened my case, I pulled out two or three pair and the lady sitting beside me remarked, 'I always wondered why they called those things BRIEFcases.'"

ALL WORK AND NO PLAY...
"In the midst of a family vacation in Bermuda, a client tracked me down in need of a lengthy deposition to be filed with the court later in the week. After I agreed to help, an attorney and his stenographer flew in and spent the next two days with me on the beach near our hotel - clad in a three-piece suit, white shirt, tie, and wingtips. In contrast, I wore a bathing suit and swam whenever they conferred. Not only did we receive lots of curious stares, but the incident eventually made it into The Wall Street Journal."
