I get yourself a large amount of questions about healthcare on the highway – “How do i avoid getting sick? What need vaccines? What goes on when I really do get sick?” Since I’m not really a doctor, I don’t like giving medical advice so I’ve asked Mike Huxley, a rn and author of your blog Bemused Backpacker to create a few articles on health insurance and safety when you travel.

His first article centered on creating the perfect medical kit. This article features easy methods to stay healthy on the highway.
