Well decide pretty quickly.

Or don't. It's up to you. Best case is you don't get malaria. Worst case is you die. Remember there's also all that between getting malaria, fighting it off and near death as well.

Having seen a bunch of parasitemia, I wouldn't dawdle about. Especially going into an endemic area.

Get a Tilley hat - You can find them on line at their website or Amazon. Made in Canada, lifetime warranty, can be washed when it gets dirty, they float, you can sit on it or roll it up and it goes back into shape. I prefer the cotton ones, as the synthetic make me sweat. I have 4 of them.

Good luck on your trip - God WILL provide, but he expects you to not be stupid.

Ask your doctor about malaria meds. We always took chloroquine in country, and then primaquine for 6 weeks after we got back.

Broad spectrum antibiotics. May want some Flagyl and Lomotil, too.

Mosquito net is a must.

Be safe, serve with gladness, and may God bless you and keep you safe!

Well, time is short. Just hours to go.

I went with Malarone for my malaria med, with a bottle of doxy as a backup.

Too much stuff and not enough time to write down a full inventory, but here is the gist of it.

"personal item"

Small 'vism' brand backpack

Most medical and stuff I may want in the planes. 2 liter camelback included. Lithium power pack, charges etc. Also gloves, paracord, hat, etc. Headlamps, batteries.





Carry on.

Clothes. Mostly lightweight nylon, long sleeve, long pants stuff. Sunscreen, soap, water filter, spare Keen shoes, a dozen Cliff bars, a few dozen packets of crystal light drink mix as you get sick of drinking 2-3 liters of warm water a day pretty quickly.

Also, a Tello Drone.



Checked baggage sharps. Folding saw, tool and primary weapon. Utility sheers, tweezers, surgical stapler, multitool, small prybar, cane/umbrella, sterile scalpel and Kleen Kanteen which just didn't fit will in anything for flying. Will be carried in the backpack in country.

All this will be moved into my backpack after arrival.




Everything else in two full sized checked bags is supplies for the orphange, clothes, baby formual....lots and lots of kids underwear and menstrual supplies..things they can't get any other way.

Small neck pouch warn under clothes with cash, debit card, passport and drivers license.

I would add a couple of shemags. The ones from India, via Amazon are the best we've found. We find them handy for staying warm, getting cool (I know, but they seem to work both ways), keep skeeters off of you (not so much for larger blood suckers, especially Congressmen), and just really darned handy.

No, we did however all get what was probably Norovirus on the way back. Probably from the airplane.

Welcome home, great pictures! Hope your bout with norovirus is not too long.

So, tell us (when you feel better) about the trip. What did you learn? Do you feel it was successful? What would you do differently?

Etc.

Default Travel vaccine

yellow fever is the only vaccine required by certain countries. Keep in mind that yellow fever vaccine can be recommended by CDC to protect your health, as well as required by a country. So you need a Travel vaccine in any case.
