What's more fun than summer travel?
Traveling without losing items that are dear!
Add a phone number (not your own) to your cell phone lock screen. If you drop your phone and a Good Samaritan finds it, they will need a way to contact you. If your cell phone is pass code protected, they won't be able to access your phone's info to return it.
If you're using a digital camera, snap a picture of your phone number. If it's lost, a Good Samaritan may scroll through your pictures and be able to contact you. My husband and I once found a camera at a state park, and were able to return the camera because the people had napped a pic of their name and address...I'm thinking leaving stuff behind was something they did frequently. The address and phone number worked, but I'd rather someone just give me a call.
Taking pets on vacation? Be sure to attach tags with cell phone number to their collars- not a home phone number. No cell phone on your trip? Make a "tag" with hotel or realty company phone number and your name. While traveling, pre-cell phone days...I'd buy a cheap collar at a dollar store and write my name and the number of the place I was staying in black marker. Jut in case my dog got a way...I'd want a way to find her!
Any other tips? Share them...and of course, they will be "borrowed".
