Travel Checklist Addition

Planning a fall getaway?  This time of year many folks take a long weekend to enjoy fall colors or simply escape the routine of life before the snow flies and travel is more hazardous.  If so, one item you may want to add to your "packing list" is a copy of your most recent power of attorney for health care.  Having a hard copy or electronic version (check to make sure these are allowed under the law of the state where you live) can save hours if not more should you find yourself in the ER.  Without proper documents your traveling partner may have no legal right to make decisions for you, even if s/he is your spouse.
