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?
