31. And just a small reminder, when traveling by air...
1. Put your NAME (the name that your ticket is under), FLIGHT Number, date and city to city codes, AND phone contacts (LOTS of contacts...cell, friend, relative, hotel) all on a BIG sheet of paper...and then stick it in the luggage, UNDER your clothes. Not on top, where it can fall out if the bag gets additional screening (aka; opened) but not hidden so much that someone from the airlines can't find that info, if your destination tag gets ripped off or destroyed (note: airlines finally got smart about the tags; tough as nails now. Remember the little colored ones with the city codes and that they were simply held on with the little elastic band?). NOTE: I do NOT recommend that you put your home address on the bag OR in the bag. Thieves/crooks can go to that location when you are not at home. If you want to put a "home" address, use your business or the business address of a friend.
2. Don't leave your shit all over in the airplane! Man...sweater in the overhead, book on the floor, IPad in the seat pocket, phone stuck in the seat cushion, headphones dangling from the jack, etc. etc. etc. ZIP your junk up in a tote bag! DAILY and on virtually every flight, there is passenger crap left behind...the airlines are not your personal valet service and don't have time to track you down to give you back that half read paperback (fyi...paperbacks go in the trash...they are left behind by the hundreds/day) AND, stuff that is found...it's gonna take several hours to get it to a Lost and Found office, tagged and info logged.
