Default download your pics

maybe this has been said before or maybe itīs common knowledge, but i wish someone would have knocked it into my head...if youīre traveling for more than a week, take a few minutes now and then to download the pics from your digital camera. i didnīt even consider it since i wasnīt close to filling the memory card, but two months and 500 pics into my trip someone grabbed my camera out of my hotel room. it was one of the few times i didnīt have it with me as i was just going to get something to eat and come back and the hotel seemed safer than a lot of the places iīve stayed. iīve traveled quite a bit and never lost anything before and probably take more precautions than most, but the bottom line is there is no way to way to be 100% safe from losing stuff, especially when travelling solo for an extended period...youīre bound to have a mental lapse now and then. and as someone said, pics are about the only thing that you canīt replace. so yeah, just figured iīd try to keep someone from making the same mistake i did...

Man, bummer about your luck. That sucks!!!! Sadly, I never download, as I don't tend to have much trust in the people doing the download. Praying I never have that bad luck
