Re: Health insurance
Blake asks a very good question here. What do people do about health
insurance while they're hiking the trail? I might be able to swing
a leave of absence but, barring that, I should probably get some kind
of insurance for when I'm gone...especially considering the potential
for injury (plates and rods in your leg?!?!).
On a related note, what have past thru-hikers done about car insurance,
personal effects, rent, telephone bills, and all those other annoying
things during their absence? I'm leaning towards moving out, getting
a storage place, and re-settling upon my return...are there any other
strategies out there?
