Ugh!  I'd rather not remember this...
I don't travel hardly at all except for monthly camping with the Scouts. 
  For my camping weekends I pack my FP, Zass grinder and associated 
parts in a metal "hanging file" box that just fits everything.  (As an 
aside, I usually roast a half-pound over the campfire on Friday night, 
drink it Saturday and Sunday mornings, and send the rest home with the 
Scoutmaster.)
This past week I had to travel to Cincinnati for a conference, and 
decided that packing a somewhat large metal box in my checked luggage 
wouldn't be such a wise idea.  So I packed my FP very carefully, with 
lots of clothes around it.  Unpacked in Cincinnati, held my breath, and 
found that the FP made it just fine.  On the way home, I again packed it 
carefully, but must have done something a little differently.  When I 
returned home, my FP had died.  It looked like it had broken early on in 
the trip (I switched planes in Minneapolis) because there were lots of 
powder-sized pieces.
An on-line search (I refuse to use a company name as a verb!) revealed 
that there are replacement beakers (polycarbonate) available elsewhere, 
but our hosts don't have them listed.  An inquiry as to their 
availability is still pending.
However, in the meantime, I've been looking very seriously at the 
Areopress as a better camping option than the Frenchpress.  I'm still 
researching my options.
I'm also looking at a Hot Pot (or similar device) for heating water. 
Who would have thought a Hyatt Regency wouldn't have a microwave oven? 
Or complimentary wireless internet for that matter?  I think I'll go 
search Sandy's posts for travel tips.....

Joe,
   I've been traveling with the AP since early last month.  I just
returned from a trip to my in-laws this weekend, taking the knee mill,
beans and the AP.  Super slim and easy to handle.  Early in Sep, I took
it to Boston with a ceramic mug and water kettle, all in checked
baggage.  Fine.
I've traveled before with a SS FP "Colombia" in carry on.  Didn't want to
chance that one this time, so I picked up the AP.  The AP's much easier to
de-ground and clean as well.  And as for the filters, a couple will hold
you a week if you handle them carefully, so there definitely minimal fuss.
I just wrote something up here, if you want to read:

lol - thanks Barbara for shattering my world.  ;-)
I can still refuse to use it though.  I suppose I could agree to use it 
if it in any way enhanced the meaning of the term "search" or 
"searched", but it doesn't.
Besides, I don't "google", I "yahoo".  ;-)  So, should the proper term 
be "I Googled Yahoo for a replacement beaker"?  Or should it be "I 
Yahoo'd a replacement beaker"?  (Oh, right.  "Yahoo'd" isn't yet a verb.)

Joe,
That is a good point. I think it only applies when using Google to 
search. M-W obviously missed this detail.

I use a Bodum Mini-Ibis ($19.95 at Crate & Barrel) for travel.  Rival  
makes an equally good performer for only ten bucks at Bed, Bath &  
Beyond--but the Ibis' elliptical shape lets it pack better in a  
suitcase or rolling garment carrier.

There is a company that makes a Press Top for a Nalgene bottle - 32oz
if you want it.  It didn't have great reviews from some of the pages I
found selling it.
I went with a 20z Big Sky Bistro mug - holds up to two mugs a day for
two months now.  Take it home at night and scrub it out.  Should last
me until Feb...after that I would be tempted to use it at work over
bringing a thermos of coffee.  The Zassenhaus Turkish with a hot pot
is a great fresh coffee combo.

I also carry one of those rigid plastic refillable travel mugs they  
sell in gas stations if I am using the AP, since cheap motels usually  
have soft foam or paper cups in the rooms and even some good suite  
hotels have mugs with mouths too narrow to fit the AP.

If you want to aeropress into a narrow mouthed mug or thermos you can use
the aeropress funnel. The bottom of the aeropress fits into it very
securely. Also, the Nissan Travel Tumbler (http://sweetmarias.com/prod.travelmugs-bottles.shtml)is a very good fit
too. (Away from home now and sipping a cup of delightful Blue Quetzal from
the tumbler.)
