A KT Tip For Travelers

When planning a trip, get a sheet of paper and write all pertinent info about the trip on it. Flight arrival and departure dates, times, places, flight numbers, ticket numbers, seat numbers if you have them. Whether you're renting a car, and if so with what company. Hotel address, phone number, check-in and check-out dates, confirmation number. Whether you've registered for the con, and how much you paid, and by what method (check? PayPal?). The more info, the better. Figure out a way to organize it all on the page that works best for you.

Think of a name for the trip (the city you're visiting, and/or the convention you're going to) and write it in big letters with a marker at the top of the page. Put the page somewhere it won't get lost. If you come up with more info about the trip later on, add it to the page. A checklist of things to bring is a very good idea, as is a timetable of where to be and what to do on which dates.

When you go on the trip, take the info sheet with you. It will come in handy. I've been doing this for several years and I've got it down to a science. :}
