    If you are going to get your flight paid with award points, DO NOT FORGET to check all the available options and values, last year I got a flight from Mexico city to Jo,Berg paid with points, I booked the flight early and had to paid 140,000 awards points for Couch, I still called every month to check if the itinerary had changed or remained the same on the third call Just being curios I asked how much difference was for a business class and first class ticket, it only was 5,000 points difference for a bussines class ticket I made the change to business but if I had waited one more week this could not had been possible, the reason I did not ask in the beginning is because in my award program the domestic fligths cost 20,000 couch and 40,000 business, I only had around 200,000 points and believed this Proportion applied in every flight, double for business, happily this is not always true.

    Band-Aid + Ibuprofen,a little Desinfection spray at the man,not in your rucksack in the car (.....3 hours away )
    I prefer a shooting vest,there are so deep pockets, I never lost things during crawling through the bush.
    When I enter the camp, I give the campmanager two telephon numbers(not only the PH) :
    Air rescue and the cell phone number of my wife.
    Laminated buisiness cards and cable ties
    for the trophies.
    A few envelopes for staff tipp(the names on and I dont get wrong)
    A composure against snakes :censored:
    When you will test the courage of you PH ,tell him a Cobra is under your bed.
    In a spilt of a second you see the truth..............

    As back up or for information use your phone to take pictures of your important documents, passport, ID, flight confirmation, hotel reservation, contracts, booking details, contact numbers, important email, directions, credit card, medical prescription, permits, ... You can also take photographs of the content of your luggage in case you need to file a claim.

    If you have cloud storage, keep these images there in a special folder for easy access from anywhere as long as you have of course an internet connection. If not you can also email these images to yourself and keep them within your mail server.
