So, It was the water!

All this time I was blaming it on conch and too much Turks Head beer.

Who'd of thunk it. :)

Lyoness,

Seriously, I agree with TCILover that a small flashlight is always a good idea, primarily so no one steps in a hole and injures an ankle. Also, be very, very careful when stepping out into the streets, as we Americans tend to only look left.

We've never carried personal protection items to Provo, just as we don't carry them with us at home.

I guess if it make someone feel more secure, then why not? It's just never crossed our minds.

As for airport security restrictions, I have no idea what they allow and don't allow. You'll have to check with the TSA.

Same ones you need to carry when you go out for dinner in the North or South End (IE: none) unless you plan to do a lot of walking after dark in Provo. If that's the case, pack a mag lite in the suitcase.

I guess you could make the DO-It store your first stop after leaving the airport and buy a machete. It will come in handy for opening coconuts, as well.

I like to pack some nice soft cloths to keep my shot glasses from knocking into each other and breaking in the cooler

Condoms may be a good idea.
