For the essentials its always good to have spares in case you lose/break one tool. That’s why many of us will have more than just one knife or one flashlight alone. Spares are good.
Its no different from the Plan B approach.
Recently I’ve been having problem with our passports. We’re traveling to Spain soon for the holydays and, as it couldn’t be any other way in Argentina, they are running short on the materials for making them so delivery of passports may take +2 months.
I remember when I went with him to get my Spanish passport for the first time, many years ago when I was just a kid.
Now understanding what my grandfather had in mind better, I got my kids their EU passports as soon as they were born.
Of course, unlike Argentina, the Spanish passport was ready in less than 2 weeks.
Because of this problem they have, they are allowing people with dual citizenships o travel with their EU passports and the expired Argentine one. Of course, if you don’t have an EU passport, you don’t travel.
This is just another good example of why its always important to have spares, Plan B and other alternatives when it comes to important matters and pieces of gear alike.
Hope all of you guys have your papers in order, your passports and such. A pen drive with copies of
such important documents is a good idea as well. I'm getting one of these today. Goes on the keychain, bright color in case you drop it.
