I lost track of mileage after I hit 4 million. In all my years of world travel, I've had 11 multi tools, 9 butane soldering irons, 1 Fluke Scopemeter with high voltage probe, a few bricks of AA batteries, clothes and cans of corned beef pilfered from my checked bags. I've learned that for certain locations, to ship my tools in advance, do without, or buy when I arrive at my location. I've learned to travel VERY lightly, going to multiple countries for a month with only a small, carry-on backpack. Carrying luggage stinks, especially when there are no escalators, elevators or paved roads. I've made it from NY to Singapore, into China and on the way returning to the US, had my tools confiscated by overzealous, unscrupulous, or greedy airline security agents. I've actually watched agents in China take an item from my bag, inspect it carefully.... and put it in their pocket., Maddening, just maddening.
