A few words of advice as we approach the 2020 season:
1. Travel insurance
Get it. Read the policy. Know what it covers.
2. Marathon swimming probably compromises one’s immune system to some degree.* Plan accordingly.
3. Avoid salad bars, hookah bars, swinger bars, monkey bars. (The latter for orthopedic reasons)
4. If you’re traveling to the US, bring toilet paper. We’re all out.... this cannot be explained.
*I’m not an MD.... so talk to someone who is.
...anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
