I usually find myself away from my home 10/11 hours a day (school and work) bit there is a TON of spare time where I find myself wishing I could use better. I have been doing music theory so far but I want to know.

Is there any excersies you can do requiring no set up (except maybe drawing some lines on paper or something) that can be done almost anywhere to help with guitar by say improving dextirety speed and accuracy?

Go over basic music theory in your mind. Write out the circle of 5ths, write out scales, arpeggios, do hand/finger stretches, etc.

if you buy a shredneck, you can have a guitar with you 24/7, and it's tiny
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)
Floor Pod (for sale)

tap your fingers on your leg, a desk or anything you can. Keep the fingers on your fretting hand moving even if you don't have a guitar in your hand.

like i was told to just put your wrist on a flat surfuce and tap your fingers in a random pattern like 1 3 2 4 3 4 2 1 1 4.... just keep your fingers going and strengthen them and build up some speed...

trust me
its not good for you
I used to work in a doctor's office with licensed physical therapists. They had their patients using Gripmasters all the time, including those with carpal tunnel syndrome.

The book 'fretboard workbook' by Barrett Tagliarino is very nice to get more familiar with the fretboard, using pen and paper along it.

Can you bring an acoustic with you to work so you can practice at lunch?

I do that when weather permits, and it makes for a great break in the middle of the day.

Yes. Physical therapists wouldn't be rehab-ing their patients with them if they were bad for you.
