Know before you go
Planning every detail for an your upcoming vacation? Don't forgot to plan for the possibility of getting sick or in an accident while traveling.
The first item on your travel checklist should be "know before you go," said Lawtonian Lynn Musselwhite.
That prior knowledge and planning helped considerably during a two-week river cruise in France that Lynn and his wife, Jan Musselwhite, took this spring. Neither speaks French, and halfway through the trip Lynn had to be hospitalized in the city of Lyon after coming down with a serious bout of bronchitis.
