So before going, spend a few minutes online and print out directions from the meeting site to the nearest stores where you might find such things. Also, do you know any fellow technies who live near the meeting site? If so, then you might ask them to recommend local sources of emergency computer stuff. Unfortunately, what used to be my favorite place to find such things when away from home, Radio Shack, now seems to consist mostly of cell phones and the selection of spare parts in the back is less than half the size it used to be!
