So what are you suggesting I do here?

I see the following with $TERM in my .bashrc:

# set a fancy prompt (non-color, unless we know we "want" color)
case "$TERM" in
    xterm-color) color_prompt=yes;;
# If this is an xterm set the title to address@hidden:dir
case "$TERM" in
    PS1="\[\e]0;${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)address@hidden: \w\a\]$PS1"

and on another remote host:

# If you're on an xterm, change the "address@hidden" and directory in
# titlebar
if test "$TERM" == "xterm" ; then
        PS1="\[\033]0;address@hidden:\w\007\]\@ \! address@hidden \w \n\$ "
        # prompt will show: time command address@hidden directory newline and $
        PS1="\@ \! address@hidden \w \n\$ "
## Emacs: ansi-term + tramp integration
## in ansi-term, ssh to this remote computer, can do C-x C-f and find file in RE
MOTE working directory
#Emacs ansi-term directory tracking
# track directory, username, and cwd for remote logons
if [ $TERM = eterm-color ]; then
    function eterm-set-cwd {
        echo -e "\033AnSiTc" $(pwd)

    # set hostname, user, and cwd
    function eterm-reset {
        echo -e "\033AnSiTu" $(whoami)
        echo -e "\033AnSiTc" $(pwd)
        echo -e "\033AnSiTh" $(hostname)

    for temp in cd pushd popd; do
        alias $temp="eterm-set-cwd $temp"
     # set hostname, user, and cwd now

Have a safe and fun trip.  Hope this gets to you before you leave.
