Readers' travel tips keep giving Regarding "Before You Go," Feb. 17: In response to Sheila Maynes' tip, "Scan your passport (main and endorsement pages and any visas), your birth certificate, airline tickets or vouchers, hotel and car booking confirmations. Email them to yourself," you might want to take extra security measures using WinZip or WinRar.
