Between flying, mountaineering and software development I've developed the habit of having a Plan B if the failure of Plan A had substantial consequences. Here are my Plan Bs, what are yours? I'm in the fourth week of a 6 week trip. In the last 3 days: - Dropped my EM10. it kept working but the battery can not be removed. Plan B is *arrgh* my cellphone. - Netbook battery or charger is dead. Plan B was download all travel notes and docs to phone from cloud storage. Can't open big PDFs, otherwise nothing lost. - Before netbook lost charge, tried to upload to cloud the 3-star raws. Believe it or not, the external hard drive was dead. Plan B is once home, remove HD from netbook, upload to PC. I'll be in a larger town this afternoon. No camera repair shops but I should be able to get a new netbook charger if needed. For future trips I need some new Plan Bs. I'll bring my P&S and SD cards for an additional back up of my favorites.
