There's nothing you have to do when a probe is down; it is automatically marked as disconnected almost immediately, and if it isn't plugged back in then it is marked as "abandoned" after 90 days and "written off" after 180 days (both of which are reversible states, so don't worry too much). We have generally tried to move away from using remote areas to signify particular probe statuses as it confuses various visualisations. Feel free to leave the location as it is, or use the location of the suitcase, or whatever else you feel to be appropriate. If you are concerned about being auto-nagged about the probe being disconnected, we get that and there is an upcoming feature that will enable you to switch off notifications for a particular probe when you know that it will be disconnected for a while. Finally, if you really feel like it then you're free to edit either the probe description or the tags to signify whatever you like, so you could make a note for your own purposes or for anybody who's curious.
