I found that a cheap USB HD works well in such a scenario. OK, it
works fine until your $29 4G drive starts getting flaky and the people
who sold you the item don't have a replacement so you settle for a
flash drive, which works for regular data, but not as a swap

So if you could spend a bit more than $29, you could carry your swap
partition around with you and maybe even have some space left to store
some of your files more frequently used files.

Good luck
