Travel rule #1: Always tell someone where you are going.
It doesn’t matter if you are travelling to an exotic foreign destination or just for a hike in your local park or wildlife area - let someone know:
- Where you are going
- When you are going
- When you will be back
Unexpected things happen. If they do - at least someone has an idea where to start looking.
Considering how big the world really is - that could be important...
