Evacuation plan for SA, Swaziland, Cameroon ?
short story, my kid going to Swaziland.. what is the best medical Evac insurance available? I'M LEANING TO MEDEX but have no experience. leaving FRIDAY 1/25/13
not me, My son Rob (25) has a video job in Swaziland and then will be going to Cameroon to visit best friend who's in the Peace Corp there. leaving Mpls in a week and a half.
He will be videoing a church group building a High School in the poorest country in the world, wanna depressing story? google Swaziland..
I will be sure he has a medical evac plan, have heard MEDX really performs, experience?
He has several top of the line Canon camera's and lenses plus a new Macbook pro (that is super fast! with the 2nd SSD I installed in the optical bay)
it's probably $20k worth of kit.. I'm trying to get him to go simple with gear he can give away when done, but that isn't going over well.
I'm researching details about the gear mostly and have heard a lot of horror stories.. like customs lets you bring in gear but won't release it unless you have all kinds of documents, likely you don't know which ones ahead of time.
anyone have experience w/customs and equipment?
Also what is the best way to get his media home in the case of equipment seizure? mail it home, have the church member carry a second copy?
I have experience from the 80's, we sneaked our gear in&out of Yugoslavia when a Czech hockey player defected to the USA and North Stars NHL team.. I got to ride home from London to NYC on the Concord! Mach 2!
and I once had my company's video camera stolen from under my nose at O'Hare..
the good and the bad..
