When flying, always pack your phone charger in your carry-on baggage, so you don’t get stuck with a dead phone if your travel plans go awry, and you’re stuck sleeping on the Dallas airport floor, overnight, in a puddle of coffee that someone spilled hours before, that soaked into the carpet padding so you didn't see or feel it, until you wake up damp, smelling like day old coffee, (again).

Buy a light Gortex or highly water resistant rain jacket for load in, over air conditioned clubs, day trips etc. You will use it constantly!
