Take two of everything - remember good old 'Sod's Law': if it can go wrong
- it will! Due to the inevitability of equipment failure you can never take too
much equipment. Sod's law dictates that equipment will work fine until you
really need it. The only way to deal with on-site failure is to pull out your
backup. Some destinations have equipment hire but should not be relied on. It is
much better to take everything with you than rely on local backup. Have a full
description of all items, serial numbers, and value. Double insure, as policies
invariably never pay the full amount.
Buying equipment abroad can be lucrative, to the point of
possibly paying for your trip.
