Label all memory cards

This item appears on page 54 of the November 2013 issue.

When traveling with a digital camera, have a special place to keep your used memory cards and flash drives so they do not get misplaced. On a trip to Southern Africa in March-April ’13, I somehow lost a drive with about 500 pictures on it. Moving every day or two to a different place during a trip can take its toll. 

Also, in addition to labeling the media with the subject of the contents, adding a name and address or email address to contact is advisable, in case someone finds it and wishes to return it.
