Whether you’re headed just for a short trip by car, flying to a different state, or traveling oversees, this will help pack all the essentials you might need and not to forget things. We have a trip on the horizon to Scotland for a family wedding in a few years. I’m already putting together ideas for what I want to do there and have talked with my husband about lengthening our trip to include a true vacation on our own afterwards and heading back to London. While we could fly, we can also save airfare and a room by taking Megabus overnight and getting a sleeping compartment. It’ll be cheap and possibly not the most comfortable, but they have WiFi and the bus leaves Scotland in the evening and arrives in London in the morning, so we’ll be up and ready to go when we stop. What I’m saying is creativity counts when planning. That idea may very well save us over $150 alone.

It is well established that air travel raises the risk of potentially fatal blood clots. Did you know, however, that traveling by car, bus, boat, and train can also be risky? Anytime that you sit still for more than 1-2 hours, your blood begins to coagulate. Coagulation means clots. This risk is increased for anyone who has thrombophilia, clotting disorders, surgery, pregnancy, hormone use, and/or a history of blood clots. Once you have had a pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), you need to be extra cautious when traveling as you are at an increased risk of a second clot. As traveling is already a risk, if you have a history of clotting, you will need to be especially careful when you travel. Example: You take a medicine known as Lyrica to treat fibromyalgia. A few days before you leave for your trip, call your doctor’s office and ask if they could provide you with an order to take with you while you are away. Give them a day to take care of this, and then drop into the office to pick it up.

Bringing your dog to the Philippines is an idea to think of very carefully and very wisely as it takes great planning and effort on how your pet survives the stress that he or she will encounter on the flight. Randy, who is the manufacturer of the nissan nicky? I bought one for $1500 and am trying to get a real value out of it. I immagine it would be on the low side right now because the cabover will need to be rebuilt. My concern is that i will invest too much to get any return. Not that i plan to sell, but what should my investment be? I figure i can do $2k – $3k in materials and be above water. If my wiggle room permits i will do an entire overhaul if not then i will make needed repairs to be campable.
It takes me at least one hour to load onto the truck, a Colorado Cab/tray. It needs to be very accurately placed on the tray, strapped down properly, cables connected, reversing mirrors attached, all inside items secured and cupboard doors latched tightly.
