I don't think Peter meant the locations it's that during those trips people could have "ended up in a hospital, or penniless wearing a barrel on the return flight" if someone else (you) "hadn't intervened". What exactly goes on during your business trips?
"I think we ought always to entertain our opinions with some measure of doubt"
To paraphrase Mark Twain "The CTists' claims are both convincing and true, unfortunately what's convincing is not true, and what's true is not convincing"
No, I knew that was what Peter meant. I just mentioned a few locations where situations have occurred.
During the time spent on actual business activities, such as on-site demonstrations for surgeons, or trade shows, meetings, etc., everything goes absolutely fine. It's during "off-time" from these things when the trouble has arisen.
Without going into details of the events, they would often occur at social gatherings - maybe at the hotel lounge, or touring the city during the day. Being in the medical device / research engineering field, many of my co-workers are intelligent people...what one may call "eggheads". But they tend, as a group, to not be terribly shrewd in social interactions. In fact, many of them are quite naive in certain "real world" situations, so to speak. If you read the comic strip "Dilbert", you might have an idea as to what I mean.

The first thing I noticed was that your grandfather also had this "sense." It's been said precognition runs in families. You might want to check out what kind of religious/spiritual beliefs and practices your ancestors were engaged in, especially anything of an occult nature.
