We live in very unstable times with Trump as president and maybe having your passport so you can get to Canada or Europe might be a good idea during the next couple of months time especially.
My wife and I were talking about how no planes flew for several weeks in the U.S. when 9-11 happened. Most air traffic in the world slowed down or stopped for awhile after this too because at first no one knew who was responsible for this and a nuclear war came very close to happening.
So, we were thinking that air travel (non-military air travel) might stop for several months if there is a nuclear conflict with North Korea happening at any point in time.
So, maybe having your passport in a safe place so you can drive to Canada or another place of safety away from nuclear radiation might be a good idea during these strange times we presently live in?
Another important thing might be to know the general prevailing winds in any area you are traveling through and specifically what direction the winds are carrying any potential nuclear radiation from any nuclear blasts because even one particle of nuclear radiation lodged in your lungs will be fatal within 20 to 30 years.
It's like the Boy Scout Motto: "Be Prepared!"
May 8, 2017 - In "Scouting for Boys," Robert Baden-Powell wrote that to Be Prepared means "
you are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty."
