Anchors to Windward

Without revealing sensitive secrets, what are your back-ups if you become stranded by a legal, financial or health crisis? Wire home for money? Abandon ship and flee to the airport or your nation's embassy? Hoist sail and sneak out in the middle of the night? Fall back on a supply of traveler checks or gold coins? Tweet like crazy?

Legal: call my lawyer.
Financial: make more money.
Health: get better or else die.

Yeah that pretty much sums it up.

Keep a little extra for emergency airfare.
Local medical system for basic healthcare
Legal troubles...flee if all possible

Re: Anchors to Windward

A company just came up with a non-medical air evac insurance policy aimed at travelers who find themselves in a country wracked with political turmoil. No endorsement intended and I know no further details but it's from tripinsurance.com
