One of my favorite Sammon tips is to wear a photo vest while boarding a plane. It enables you to carry extra gear without lugging around an extra carry-on, which probably wouldn't be allowed anyway. Plus you have space to store valuables in the event that carry-ons are unexpectedly prohibited. Rick talks more about this travel tactic (and shares lots of other goodies) in this podcast.
