DS is on his second trip. He flew alone there and had a layover at the airport he's most familiar with.
He had two AuviQs on his person, and in his backpack had both Epi kits pictured above. Once he got to the hotel, he was to give one to each coach so there'd be backup on the way.
He has a few the remaining Benadryl strips left in the world in his wallet, along with a WetOne packet.
He knew a safe place to eat at on the way (we've only seen it at this airport, but he's eaten there a few times, and they have "no nuts" language on their menu. It's like a Chipotle or a Qdoba or Moe's.
Things we did to make traveling easier:
-he took a few snacks on the plane (Belvita cookies, fig newtons)
-he took wipes and wiped down his tray table like he always does flying with us
-we had a copy of his flight plans as pictures on our phone in addition to the email. It would have been very easy to send this to someone (well, his coach also had it)
-he signed us up to receive email/text alerts for his plane status. This was just a nice thing.
-he texted us when he arrived at the gate for his first and second legs--and also when he was on the plane.
-he texted us when he was at baggage claim
-we talked about having a NYC subway face for hailing a cab and dealing with it. His team arrived earlier, so he had to catch a taxi from his (city) airport to the hotel.
-he texted us the name of the cab company and number of the taxi (name and phone could be done by taking a photo and texting it to us). If the last place we heard from him was the cab, I wanted to be able to trace things. I actually told him to snap a photo of the driver's info card that you often see on the back of the passenger front seat, but he didn't see one.
-he texted us when he got to the hotel and once he'd made contact with his coach.
And that's the last we heard from him until today, lol.
He took portable Clorox Wipes and Wet Ones with him to clean surfaces.
He did not have a kitchenette this trip. He took the portable packets of Nutella, some tortillas, an assortment of plasticware, and some sandwich bags/large bags/snackbags to use for lunches.
He took a different lunch bag this time, as he has a backpack that came with his suitcase that fits his Chromebook nicely. So I bought a neopropylene slim bag.
At the grocery store he was going to buy:
--paper towels (to have a clean surface for preparing lunch.
He totally lucked out, and they have Krispy Kreme at the tournament.
I have asked him twice about food in texts. He has not responded.
But he is still alive and has not had a reaction. And he did text us about results.
We'll see how things go, but this worked out well.
I'm really proud of him.
