I read with interest, stories of people caught out by the ash cloud that  partially enveloped us.

I travelled the world for over forty years and the one thing that was drummed into me was, SHIT HAPPENS.

Have $100 of cash in your wallet. Everywhere will accept dollars.

Keep a credit card in your wallet that is empty. Only use it occasionally to keep it extant.

Make sure that you have at least a dual band mobile phone.

All these have got me out of trouble either singularly or all together. Don't rely on other people. Be prepared for the worst.
