Happy, uh, happy Thanksgiving here. We’re coming up. I’ll be the last show before the holidays and

00:00:32.920 –> 00:00:36.560
You know, I wish everybody, you know healthy

00:00:36.560 –> 00:00:41.240
Happy Thanksgiving safe travels if you’re gonna be traveling anywhere

00:00:41.240 –> 00:00:45.000
I’ll say travel may be a little bit tougher on certain areas of the

00:00:45.000 –> 00:00:50.580
Certain areas of the country I getting hit with snow storms and stuff like that. So, you know, it’s

00:00:50.580 –> 00:00:53.360
The holidays are always great folks

00:00:53.360 –> 00:00:58.180
But it’s always stinks when you got to do the traveling my wife and I’ll be doing some traveling as well

00:00:58.180 –> 00:01:03.220
Visiting our family club, maybe maybe two hours maybe east of here. So

00:01:03.220 –> 00:01:06.880
We’ll be in pencil. I’ll still be in Pennsylvania, but I will have to

00:01:06.880 –> 00:01:13.260
It’s gonna be it’s a hike folks. I can tell you that going to my in-laws. It’s uh, it’s always always a hike going there

00:01:13.260 –> 00:01:16.720
So like I said got a lot going on here a lot of stuff going on with that

00:01:16.720 –> 00:01:19.960
So we will be traveling over the holiday as well

00:01:20.840 –> 00:01:25.920
And folks view the traveling just make sure you know, you have your you know your travel bag with them

00:01:25.920 –> 00:01:27.840
Make sure you take your go bag with you

00:01:27.840 –> 00:01:33.760
Now make sure you you know have your car kit with you all that stuff that we’ve talked about in earlier podcasts

00:01:33.760 –> 00:01:39.320
All that stuff is great. If you’re gonna be traveling by car and you’re gonna be now for you know

00:01:39.320 –> 00:01:41.680
Three four or five hours away from home

00:01:41.680 –> 00:01:47.560
It’s always great to make sure you have your car kit and obviously your go bag all that stuff. So

00:01:47.560 –> 00:01:49.760
Make sure you pack

00:01:49.760 –> 00:01:53.620
All of that with you for these travels make sure you have some water packed

00:01:53.620 –> 00:01:57.460
Make sure you have stuff for the kids to do all that stuff. Make sure you’re always

00:01:57.460 –> 00:01:59.920
Prepared when you’re gonna be away from home

00:01:59.920 –> 00:02:05.460
Always have your travel supplies ready your tactical bag all that stuff that you bring with you

00:02:05.460 –> 00:02:06.700
I always take a lot of stuff with me

00:02:06.700 –> 00:02:11.120
I always drive my wife crazy with all the stuff I bring with me, but I’d rather be prepared

00:02:11.120 –> 00:02:14.640
Obviously then over prepared then obviously under prepared

00:02:15.560 –> 00:02:21.700
So very all that important important stuff to know when you’re traveling obviously always have you know all that stuff

00:02:21.700 –> 00:02:24.200
What I usually do is believe it or not. I usually download

00:02:24.200 –> 00:02:31.180
Download maps to my phone and stuff like that just in case there’s a cell service for my in-laws live pretty far out

00:02:31.180 –> 00:02:36.100
so a lot of times it’s hard to get how to get not so much GPS, but

00:02:36.100 –> 00:02:38.680
Sometimes it could be hard to get

00:02:38.680 –> 00:02:43.420
Hard to get cell service there. So the next vehicle I’m bringing is GPS and it’s all be alright

00:02:43.420 –> 00:02:47.880
But a lot of times a Ford GPS when I would go up that way I’d download

00:02:47.880 –> 00:02:52.380
You know a map to a to my phone or I’d actually grab a paper map. You can’t really get

00:02:52.380 –> 00:02:58.560
Paper maps anymore, but back then I would actually do that just for you know

00:02:58.560 –> 00:03:04.440
Just so I had something with me. So all that stuff again very important when you’re traveling

00:03:04.440 –> 00:03:09.840
Obviously make sure you got a full tank of gas, you know, make sure the car the car which is your former transportation

00:03:09.840 –> 00:03:13.100
Make sure the tires are okay. Make sure you got make sure you’ve not got enough gas

00:03:13.100 –> 00:03:17.160
You know, make sure you’re full all that stuff. So, you know, I

00:03:17.160 –> 00:03:24.440
Have a nice safe easy comfortable travel experience and also to folks, you know always

00:03:24.440 –> 00:03:29.800
you know make sure just time of year especially a blanket in the car and all that for or to blankets anything if you have

00:03:29.800 –> 00:03:32.580
yourself and your wife or your kids or girlfriend whatever so

00:03:32.580 –> 00:03:36.200
All that stuff and that actually say that’s coming from the voice experience

00:03:36.780 –> 00:03:41.660
One of the worst situations I ever had was coming home years ago from

00:03:41.660 –> 00:03:46.420
Coming back from New York City and I actually got the got stuck on the highway

00:03:46.420 –> 00:03:49.780
For like almost 10 hours

00:03:49.780 –> 00:03:55.180
Due to weather and accidents my wife was my wife at the time

00:03:55.180 –> 00:04:00.140
But she was she actually was a cheating. She was actually

00:04:00.140 –> 00:04:06.180
Waiting for me to come home and it was usually like a two-hour trip and I was there almost 10 hours

00:04:06.180 –> 00:04:12.780
You know, I you know lucky enough. I you know, I had people I had put a bottle of water in the car and all that but

00:04:12.780 –> 00:04:16.820
You know, they’re bringing around hot coffee and some of that which really helped

00:04:16.820 –> 00:04:19.140
you know when you’re freezing your butt off out there and

00:04:19.140 –> 00:04:24.180
Also to folks a lot of other things too when you’re in that situation, but specifically

00:04:24.180 –> 00:04:31.220
You know, I had some some snacks and stuff in the car I was alright, but you’d be surprised how many people

00:04:31.220 –> 00:04:34.940
They were coming around how many people had a fit help out because they were

00:04:35.580 –> 00:04:38.420
Diabetics and have any food in the corner or sugar loaves all that

00:04:38.420 –> 00:04:43.700
So when you travel you do want to make sure that if you do get stuck for a long period of time

00:04:43.700 –> 00:04:47.180
You’re prepared and also times it’s not always easy to be prepared

00:04:47.180 –> 00:04:52.260
but especially when a full tank of gas you’re able to start the car and think like we were able to start the car and

00:04:52.260 –> 00:04:57.380
Turn the heat on once like once an hour if you had a half a tank shut the car over for two hours for heat

00:04:57.380 –> 00:05:00.340
you know all that kind of stuff, but it’s

00:05:00.340 –> 00:05:03.220
you know, it’s one of those things where

00:05:04.540 –> 00:05:07.660
You know when you’re traveling and unfortunately you have the one thing you know

00:05:07.660 –> 00:05:12.740
I’ve said this in podcast for I’ll say it almost every podcast one thing you cannot control when you’re traveling is the weather and

00:05:12.740 –> 00:05:16.940
You know, it’s one of those things where you it’s always better to be

00:05:16.940 –> 00:05:23.140
You know over prepared obviously that underprepared but that was the worst chance for us there has sitting on the highway for 10 hours

00:05:23.140 –> 00:05:26.860
And they do 10 hours was I was actually one of the shorter people that were on the highway

00:05:26.860 –> 00:05:31.340
A couple people that were I knew I heard stories that were on the highway for 14 18 hours

00:05:32.120 –> 00:05:34.380
So you can imagine what that must have been like so

00:05:34.380 –> 00:05:37.740
But like I said folks

00:05:37.740 –> 00:05:40.220
You know, obviously, you know be prepared for CVS

00:05:40.220 –> 00:05:43.080
I’m as a diabetic have something in the car for them in case you do get stuck

00:05:43.080 –> 00:05:46.080
Obviously make sure if you’re traveling issue bring your medications

00:05:46.080 –> 00:05:53.280
All that stuff, you know, so you makes it easier travel experience and a better travel experience for you

00:05:53.280 –> 00:05:55.840
So I just want to try to bring that up

00:05:55.840 –> 00:05:59.700
Also folks going

00:05:59.980 –> 00:06:02.460
Kind of talking about some other things going on

00:06:02.460 –> 00:06:09.580
After obviously Thanksgiving tis the season for Christmas and we’re looking at

00:06:09.580 –> 00:06:13.920
Ready stuff starting to kind of hit the fan here with the credit card fraud

00:06:13.920 –> 00:06:22.200
Ready, they’re saying they’re not saying who yet, but I’m sure they’re gonna release it saying over 4 million stores already hit with credit card breaches. I

00:06:22.200 –> 00:06:27.240
Mean it’s ready starting and that we haven’t hit Black Friday yet. So

00:06:28.480 –> 00:06:31.840
Something like I said to you know, if you’re gonna be buying online

00:06:31.840 –> 00:06:38.760
I always recommend if you’re gonna buy online folks use one credit card and then keep track of whatever transactions you buy in that one credit

00:06:38.760 –> 00:06:39.620

00:06:39.620 –> 00:06:41.620
Always folks as well

00:06:41.620 –> 00:06:43.860
If you’re gonna be buying

00:06:43.860 –> 00:06:50.080
You can use this pre-bought, you know gift cards. That’s something you can use as well those help

00:06:50.080 –> 00:06:53.080
there’s a

00:06:53.080 –> 00:06:56.080
Now man, it’s in one day

00:06:57.080 –> 00:06:59.620
I’ll use those prepaid Visa gift cards

00:06:59.620 –> 00:07:06.520
Those will help keep you safe if you’re gonna buy online all that kind of stuff can can really help you

00:07:06.520 –> 00:07:13.760
Really avoid credit card and credit card fraud and I and all that stuff. This is the season for folks

00:07:13.760 –> 00:07:17.120
A credit card for what happens it happens this time of year

00:07:17.120 –> 00:07:20.320
It always does it’s been that way the last couple of years

00:07:20.320 –> 00:07:23.740
So I always record tell people this time of year

00:07:24.240 –> 00:07:29.440
Tis not only is this season for Christmas tis the season to get your credit card stolen

00:07:29.440 –> 00:07:34.840
So all that information and obviously the new year coming up as well. So

00:07:34.840 –> 00:07:38.360
It’s gonna be a lot going on

00:07:38.360 –> 00:07:42.820
For me this year though that this time of years really what wears on me is the travel

00:07:42.820 –> 00:07:45.620
It’s just that time of year where you know

00:07:45.620 –> 00:07:51.240
As you know everybody this time of years traveling and these are always time of year the horror stories about people getting killed in car

00:07:51.360 –> 00:07:58.680
Accidents people getting stuck and people not having not having a food or something like that cuz I can’t get it’s always because because this

00:07:58.680 –> 00:08:00.120
Is the time of year?

00:08:00.120 –> 00:08:06.160
Thanksgiving to January 1st second is when everybody does the truth, you know, well the holiday travel starts

00:08:06.160 –> 00:08:08.840

00:08:08.840 –> 00:08:11.680
Yeah, this is when you hear the horror stories about traveling

00:08:11.680 –> 00:08:13.840

00:08:13.840 –> 00:08:17.160
Fuck I’m yawning so much. It’s just been a long couple of days

00:08:18.480 –> 00:08:22.980
And I don’t about travel any controls look I always joke around say I always say you can’t roll

00:08:22.980 –> 00:08:27.200
Oh, it’s the truth of an I always joke around tell me one thing I can’t travel travels like crappy hotel rooms

00:08:27.200 –> 00:08:34.960
It’s traveling this week and it’s the hotel was just I usually stay a rather rather than I usually stay a pretty decent hotel

00:08:34.960 –> 00:08:37.800
Fortunately, they’re all booked due to something going on down here

00:08:37.800 –> 00:08:43.840
And the hotel bed is just killing me back to killing me everything from just the crappy hotel bed. So

00:08:43.840 –> 00:08:47.320
you know, but

00:08:47.640 –> 00:08:50.680
You know folks it’s just one of those things of the season for traveling

00:08:50.680 –> 00:08:54.960
I always tell people to by the way this time of year always better be I was over prepared than underprepared

00:08:54.960 –> 00:09:02.680
Before I go anywhere. I will always make sure I have my my reservation confirmation number from the hotel. I’m staying at

00:09:02.680 –> 00:09:05.760
I’ll always make sure I have

00:09:05.760 –> 00:09:09.680
You know all that information with me I

00:09:09.680 –> 00:09:14.800
Will not travel as I get hotel reservation information ahead of time

00:09:14.800 –> 00:09:18.040
And unless I have my I call and I like to get my confirmation number

00:09:18.040 –> 00:09:21.120
Just make sure I have a place to stay if it’s gonna be a lot

00:09:21.120 –> 00:09:27.840
Especially especially with the far far trip and I do have to stay over. I will always get hotel confirmation number

00:09:27.840 –> 00:09:30.440
before just in case

00:09:30.440 –> 00:09:33.600
So, you know all those things are really important when you’re traveling

00:09:33.600 –> 00:09:41.280
One really and the only two folks are one thing I like to point out too and I kind of pointed this out to people

00:09:44.000 –> 00:09:46.320
Something to realize too when you are traveling

00:09:46.320 –> 00:09:53.680
Obviously where you’re going and all that ever see prepared plans for that is obviously important

00:09:53.680 –> 00:09:56.140
But where you’re leaving is also important too

00:09:56.140 –> 00:09:58.760
In the sense that if you’re gonna leave

00:09:58.760 –> 00:10:02.120
You know leaving your home unattended

00:10:02.120 –> 00:10:06.920
For a week couple weeks at a time or a week at a time or even a weekend sometimes to be a problem

00:10:06.920 –> 00:10:11.160
Oh, you know, I always tell people, you know have somebody check in on the place

00:10:11.720 –> 00:10:18.200
We generally always have somebody check in there because we’ve got two dogs. So I always recommend people having somebody to check in

00:10:18.200 –> 00:10:21.560
so, you know, I

00:10:21.560 –> 00:10:26.780
We always have somebody coming in to check the house because of the dogs that the dogs out for us so that but always

00:10:26.780 –> 00:10:31.280
There’s some me check in I recommend if you don’t if you some people don’t like it, but I personally do

00:10:31.280 –> 00:10:33.440
We have security cameras

00:10:33.440 –> 00:10:38.740
Like it’s not really just so much to keep an eye on things and you know, obviously the human elements always an issue

00:10:38.740 –> 00:10:43.680
But for us it’s really worrying about the animals worrying about the the temperature

00:10:43.680 –> 00:10:48.920
We actually have an the nest so we can actually say what the temperatures homes of it really mostly

00:10:48.920 –> 00:10:53.340
just for safety really obviously the human element obviously is one thing but

00:10:53.340 –> 00:10:55.980
Just to make sure to the pipes don’t freeze

00:10:55.980 –> 00:11:00.240
And you know just keep an eye on things make sure there’s no smoke

00:11:00.240 –> 00:11:05.440
No fire checking on the pets making sure that the dogs are okay making sure the person that said they’re gonna take them out

00:11:05.440 –> 00:11:07.620
Does take them out for us

00:11:07.620 –> 00:11:12.660
Just you know, basically we use the cameras to really just kind of keep an eye on things

00:11:12.660 –> 00:11:18.960
Somebody’s gonna break in steal something. Somebody’s unfortunately gonna break in and steal something. I mean cameras really can’t do much about that

00:11:18.960 –> 00:11:21.600

00:11:21.600 –> 00:11:27.140
You know just just the thought of being able to check out my home and stuff like that when I’m not there

00:11:27.140 –> 00:11:29.540
Gives me a little little peace of mind

00:11:29.540 –> 00:11:32.680
Like I said being able to check on the temperature being able to check on

00:11:32.680 –> 00:11:35.320
the pets all that stuff

00:11:35.840 –> 00:11:37.840
Really helps out tremendously. So

00:11:37.840 –> 00:11:40.760
Just you know

00:11:40.760 –> 00:11:45.000
Information that’s important for for you to know

00:11:45.000 –> 00:11:49.640
When you’re not there, I do always recommend having somebody you can trust

00:11:49.640 –> 00:11:52.200
Check in on the property

00:11:52.200 –> 00:11:54.200
Because that’s you know

00:11:54.200 –> 00:12:01.560
You know when you’re away from home, that’s what fires and and you know pipes breaking and all that kind of stuff water damage leaky roof

00:12:01.560 –> 00:12:03.560
That’s what all that stuff’s gonna happen

00:12:03.600 –> 00:12:05.880
That generally that stuff does happen when you’re not home

00:12:05.880 –> 00:12:07.880
I don’t know a lot of people don’t know that but

00:12:07.880 –> 00:12:12.640
Generally, most of that stuff that I’m talking about happens when people are not home. It doesn’t happen when people are home

00:12:12.640 –> 00:12:14.640
I mean it does happen, but you’re home to take care of it

00:12:14.640 –> 00:12:17.920
So the damage doesn’t add the damage usually from leaky roofs

00:12:17.920 –> 00:12:23.800
pipes breaking all that stuff happens when you’re not home because you know, the water is just running or the

00:12:23.800 –> 00:12:28.600
Or you know the roofs just leaking and there’s nobody to help take care of it. So

00:12:28.600 –> 00:12:31.860
You know, that’s like I said really the important

00:12:32.580 –> 00:12:37.020
Important stuff like I said not only where you’re going but where you’re leaving and protecting home base

00:12:37.020 –> 00:12:42.900
And all that kind of stuff if you do have the financial means I recommend one of those alarm systems

00:12:42.900 –> 00:12:45.600
personally that check, you know

00:12:45.600 –> 00:12:51.380
One of those ADT’s that you know, you know, they call in a fire. They monitor your home against fire

00:12:51.380 –> 00:12:56.480
You know that all I mean if you could afford it and it’s in your budget, I would recommend it

00:12:56.480 –> 00:13:00.200
You know, it’s no way, you know, especially if you have a second home or home

00:13:00.200 –> 00:13:02.800
You’re not at very often that could be a worthwhile

00:13:02.800 –> 00:13:06.700
Investment so something to you know something to think about

00:13:06.700 –> 00:13:11.460
Protecting is this home base and or your go-to property?

00:13:11.460 –> 00:13:15.080
You know, it’s a no very second home

00:13:15.080 –> 00:13:21.460
It’s really were you know, keeping an eye on things is to be important and nowadays really now, you know years ago

00:13:21.460 –> 00:13:24.020
You know that kind of stuff used to be

00:13:24.020 –> 00:13:27.760
Really pricey and all the price of all that stuff has come down drastically

00:13:28.300 –> 00:13:36.160
You can put you know fork security cameras in a DVR box in your home for less than $200 nowadays with a cheap system. So I

00:13:36.160 –> 00:13:43.620
Guess it’s affordable for everybody and it’s really something to think about especially if you have

00:13:43.620 –> 00:13:47.740
You know a place where you really you know, especially want to keep the place safe

00:13:47.740 –> 00:13:51.720
You know place we just gonna go if you know your general home where you are

00:13:51.720 –> 00:13:54.820
It’s really well your valuables and that stuff is generally

00:13:55.560 –> 00:14:01.620
Second homes really not so much but your main home base is generally where all your valuables all your important information is going to be

00:14:01.620 –> 00:14:03.700
all the stuff that

00:14:03.700 –> 00:14:11.300
You know really is important to your life and that’s the place you need to protect is you know the home base

00:14:11.300 –> 00:14:13.600

00:14:13.600 –> 00:14:17.180
But like I said folks do the try all the travel stuff very important

00:14:17.180 –> 00:14:21.060
Especially this time of year because this is where you do a lot of traveling, you know

00:14:21.060 –> 00:14:24.260
I always tell people brief you’re gonna stay for three days bring four days worth of clothes

00:14:24.260 –> 00:14:27.980
But you’re having four days bring five days with clothes

00:14:27.980 –> 00:14:32.460
You can never hurt to have an extra pair of clothes always, you know, check the weather where you’re going

00:14:32.460 –> 00:14:35.280
Know what know what the temperature is there?

00:14:35.280 –> 00:14:39.500
You don’t want to bring you know a jeans and parka if it’s gonna be 84 degrees there

00:14:39.500 –> 00:14:43.900
You know, you know dress or if you don’t know what the weather’s gonna be for some reason dress and layers

00:14:43.900 –> 00:14:47.140
I mean there’s tons of stuff you could do folks. You have to really

00:14:47.140 –> 00:14:53.040
You know weather is the one thing you really can’t control and all that. So that’s the really the main thing

00:14:53.040 –> 00:14:58.880
It’s a prep always bring you know, if you’re staying for four days, you know brings bring a week worth of medication folks

00:14:58.880 –> 00:15:05.460
You never bring just enough you always bring if you’re gonna be four days bring a week’s worth of medication

00:15:05.460 –> 00:15:10.820
I’ll be staying at a hotel you have insulin, you know, just tell them you have you have medication that you need to put in a fridge

00:15:10.820 –> 00:15:18.580
They’ll give you the fridge. Okay, so, you know, it’s it’s like all that stuff is really important

00:15:19.220 –> 00:15:23.160
Especially, you know, I ran into situations years ago when I was younger

00:15:23.160 –> 00:15:28.020
My grandmother where we went on vacation for six days and she bought six days worth of medication

00:15:28.020 –> 00:15:34.120
And then my grandfather got put in a hospital up there and they were there an extra week and she only had six days of medication

00:15:34.120 –> 00:15:38.580
so I had a friend of mine actually overnight us the

00:15:38.580 –> 00:15:43.820
The men her met all her medications so that she had enough pills so

00:15:43.820 –> 00:15:48.340
All that like I said, you know that stuff is it’s so very important

00:15:48.860 –> 00:15:54.860
Always bring like I said an extra extra week of medication with you or it’s a couple days of medication with you

00:15:54.860 –> 00:15:57.300
And somebody I said, what if I get stuck for a month?

00:15:57.300 –> 00:16:03.420
You know, well one is generally gonna get stuck someplace for a month one, but two

00:16:03.420 –> 00:16:06.300
If you bring at least two three days of medication

00:16:06.300 –> 00:16:09.800
It gives you an opportunity to get a hold of a doctor

00:16:09.800 –> 00:16:13.780
You know find a pharmacy close by get the you know

00:16:13.780 –> 00:16:18.820
It gives you buys you a few days rather than I need this today. It buys you a couple days of

00:16:18.820 –> 00:16:21.420
breather room of flexibility

00:16:21.420 –> 00:16:23.700

00:16:23.700 –> 00:16:26.180
You know if you only bring enough the next day you’re out

00:16:26.180 –> 00:16:31.020
So, you know, it’s really really important to pack extra meds and stuff like that

00:16:31.020 –> 00:16:33.940
Medication I find can be a real problem

00:16:33.940 –> 00:16:39.820
Really that’s to be one of those things that really ruins a vacation for you when you don’t pack enough medication

00:16:40.180 –> 00:16:44.140
You could really be in a tough circuit circumstances

00:16:44.140 –> 00:16:46.300
You know, I’m not going myself

00:16:46.300 –> 00:16:50.460
I take some medic I take some medication and I always have an extra day or two on me

00:16:50.460 –> 00:16:54.540
Even if I know I’m like and let me tell you folks you you don’t have to see bring the whole bottle

00:16:54.540 –> 00:16:56.860
They have things that fit on your key ring that you could fit

00:16:56.860 –> 00:17:01.700
You know a couple pills in and that couple pills could last you a couple of days

00:17:01.700 –> 00:17:06.660
So always important to have that kind of stuff with you, especially when you’re traveling

00:17:07.900 –> 00:17:14.500
You know always the medic medication is a big issue because that’s the thing lately business with us if I go traveling

00:17:14.500 –> 00:17:17.700
Okay, and for some reason

00:17:17.700 –> 00:17:20.460
prime example

00:17:20.460 –> 00:17:22.460
They lose my luggage

00:17:22.460 –> 00:17:24.740
And my luggage has my medication

00:17:24.740 –> 00:17:26.900
Now I’m in trouble

00:17:26.900 –> 00:17:30.020
Okay, because my medication I don’t have my medication

00:17:30.020 –> 00:17:37.680
If long as I had I always will bring my medication stuff if I fly I’ll bring my medication with me on the plane

00:17:38.040 –> 00:17:40.040
in my carry-on

00:17:40.040 –> 00:17:42.160
So I have my medication

00:17:42.160 –> 00:17:48.940
Okay, if they lose my bags I could always buy socks. Okay, I could always buy a pair of pants

00:17:48.940 –> 00:17:51.760
I could always buy a pair I could always buy shoes

00:17:51.760 –> 00:17:53.740

00:17:53.740 –> 00:18:00.720
You cannot go out and just buy medication. You have to get a hold of the doctor. You have to get them to call in our script

00:18:00.720 –> 00:18:05.120
You have to find a pharmacy locally that has it that then that’s not about you

00:18:05.120 –> 00:18:11.320
I’ve had situations on myself, but my mom that not every pharmacy carries every medication

00:18:11.320 –> 00:18:14.720
So that’s that’s another issue, too

00:18:14.720 –> 00:18:19.680
You know your local pharmacy carries that medication because you cause you’re getting it so they know it’s gonna go

00:18:19.680 –> 00:18:22.420
Not necessarily every pharmacy carries every medication

00:18:22.420 –> 00:18:25.080

00:18:25.080 –> 00:18:31.220
That’s important as well. So if I’m traveling I will always bring medication on me on the plane with me

00:18:31.640 –> 00:18:36.280
In my carry-on not I don’t bring the whole prescription by the way, I’ll bring you know

00:18:36.280 –> 00:18:38.380
I’m gonna stay for two days. I’ll bring a week worth with me

00:18:38.380 –> 00:18:42.120
Okay, and because they get that to the kid

00:18:42.120 –> 00:18:47.080
Like I said, if they lose your the view if you’re traveling and they lose your luggage you could always

00:18:47.080 –> 00:18:50.320
buy socks pants shirts

00:18:50.320 –> 00:18:56.300
You can’t just go and buy medication all over the counter stuff town all stuff of that. Yeah, but you know not

00:18:56.300 –> 00:18:58.920
not prescription medication

00:18:59.480 –> 00:19:04.680
Especially insulin because not ever again not everybody carries it not everybody’s on the same kind of insulin

00:19:04.680 –> 00:19:07.680
So that that’s a big of insulin is always the big one I hear about

00:19:07.680 –> 00:19:16.080
Intrepressants, those are the big ones that that I hear mostly about blood pressure medication heart medication the biggies

00:19:16.080 –> 00:19:23.420
You know any medication you’re on I mean any of the big medications are the real ones, you know

00:19:23.420 –> 00:19:25.640
If you’re a couple days that cholesterol medicine

00:19:25.640 –> 00:19:28.620
Usually you’ll be alright. I’m not a doctor, you know

00:19:29.360 –> 00:19:35.880
Hey, don’t quote me on that. But you know generally, you know stuff like that, you know cholesterol medicine or vitamins

00:19:35.880 –> 00:19:40.720
You can probably do a day or two without heart heart medication blood pressure medication

00:19:40.720 –> 00:19:44.560
You know

00:19:44.560 –> 00:19:46.320
antidepressants insulin

00:19:46.320 –> 00:19:52.760
Anything like that, you know and to that’s only both if you are insulin dependent or diabetic bring your machine with you

00:19:52.760 –> 00:19:55.140
I should carry on – don’t just say okay

00:19:55.140 –> 00:19:58.380
I’ll just bring my insulin because you don’t have a way of testing if they lose your machine

00:19:58.560 –> 00:20:04.560
So that’s something else, you know anything you need if you need if you need anything a breathing machine anything

00:20:04.560 –> 00:20:08.320
Bring it ask carry on don’t risk your vacation

00:20:08.320 –> 00:20:14.240
Don’t risk your life not having it by by letting somebody at the luggage department decide your fate

00:20:14.240 –> 00:20:18.880
Okay, bring it on the plane with you. I know it’s a pain in the ass, but it’s

00:20:18.880 –> 00:20:21.520
when you’re traveling

00:20:21.520 –> 00:20:22.520

00:20:22.520 –> 00:20:25.960
Can really be a big problem, especially around the holidays

00:20:27.000 –> 00:20:29.640
Thanksgiving Christmas when a lot of people everything’s closed

00:20:29.640 –> 00:20:32.280
you either going to the hospital or

00:20:32.280 –> 00:20:36.480
You’re gonna have to do without and that’s not healthy either. So I

00:20:36.480 –> 00:20:41.640
Can’t stress that enough I’ve seen so many times where medications can ruin

00:20:41.640 –> 00:20:46.800
People’s vacations or they because because they lose their love and you know, you may you may have been the guy that said, okay

00:20:46.800 –> 00:20:51.720
I’m gonna pack a week’s worth but you pack that week’s worth in your luggage and they lost your luggage

00:20:51.720 –> 00:20:54.440
Bring it on the carry on with you folks

00:20:55.200 –> 00:20:59.680
It’s much safer that way it’s safer. You’re safer. Okay

00:20:59.680 –> 00:21:04.040
Always always always and the other thing I’m gonna mention to folks

00:21:04.040 –> 00:21:09.040
Also to when you’re traveling now that you can want your credit your debit card credit cards

00:21:09.040 –> 00:21:11.760
Whatever always bring some cash with you another big thing

00:21:11.760 –> 00:21:16.160
I tell everybody if you’re gonna be traveling always bring cash because I’m telling you right now

00:21:16.160 –> 00:21:21.520
That is a big pain in the ass if you get to a place and you don’t they don’t take credit cards

00:21:21.560 –> 00:21:27.440
Okay, I have been some places on the road out in like Montana and some of that where I went on hunting trips out there

00:21:27.440 –> 00:21:31.920
And I got there and hey, guess what? They don’t take debit cards here. They want the cash

00:21:31.920 –> 00:21:37.600
So like I said folks, you know travel is is a big issue and you know

00:21:37.600 –> 00:21:40.280
It’s always better to be safe obviously then sorry

00:21:40.280 –> 00:21:48.280
Like I said folks, I want to thank everybody for listening and we will talk to you on the next episode. Thank you very much

00:21:48.280 –> 00:21:49.860
Thank you very much.
