I’m currently getting ready to fly back home. The following are a few things that I made sure were in place to make my flight less stressful and for emergency situations.
First, since I have kids, I made sure that my life insurance is at a respectable level. For me, that’s half a million dollars in coverage. I actually did this a few years ago, but it’s brings me easy of mind knowing that if something did happen, my family will be covered.
Second, I always take dramamine a half an hour to a full hour before I get on the plane. On the way out my ride was smooth, but I didn’t have a direct flight, and the second leg of my trip was very rough! I’m sure I would have been miserable if I didn’t first take some dramamine.
Third, make sure you have Tums or some other form of antiacid. While I didn’t have an upset stomach on the way out, if I had, it could have been a very rough journey.
Fourth, I also take carry some ibprufen in my pocket just to make sure if the need arises, I have the medicine. I was almost forced to take such a pill during the last flight.
And finally, I converted an audiobook to a series of MP3s so that I could be distracted and enjoy the fly. I’ve used similar approach with my car trip to vacation destinations.
Well, that’s it, now it’s time to go to sleep… I hope the flight goes well tomorrow!
