Most insurance companies have a 'vacation' allowance for 2x normal so 6 months supply. We also renew as soon as possible so have a small cushion of meds.

These are certainly helpful tips from everyone! I can't wait to take my first long haul cruise. I think it's a bucket list item! I had Panama and Alaska on the list and the world cruise is in the ' it will be my miracle! section of the bucket list...

Life is short, the world is vast and truly amazing. Isn't that why we have credit cards!

They ask for three days notice for initiating the program and two days notice for reinstating the services to their previous level of service.

That sounds pretty cool to me.

Has anyone ever tried something like that?
My mom does it every year for the summer. Like Keith said though, I know she had to call them and have them come out because they had done something in the neighborhood while she was gone and it now needed in house fixing.

"The one thing I haven't noticed anyone mentioning is turning off the hot water heater and incoming cold water. This action is self explanatory.
If you use tankless water heaters or instant hot water appliances this is not necessary."


I WOULD DISAGREE WITH THE ABOVE STATEMENT. If a hot water line breaks, you don't need the extra cost of Gas to heat that leaking hot water.
