c. maps - you're lost without them - best source: visitor's centres - don't buy the 4.95 ones at the garage that also charges .50 for air (although you can have free air if you ask the cashier)

e. extended health insurance (see "Incident" entry below)
f. other people's wireless internet access - once again: Thanks.
