For the first time ever on one of my trips, I won't be able to contact anyone in the States between Monday morning and Friday night when I'll either be in or enroute to or from Churchill.
There are phones and internet access in that city itself but not where I'll be staying - a unique hotel on wheels on the tundra ice outside of the city itself.
It will be the first time I will go an entire market week without having the foggiest idea of what's going on in the market.
Only when I get back to Winnipeg on Friday night, Oct. 28 will I be able to call my brokerage to find out the news.
I'm not here to save money. I can't take it with me, I'm not getting any younger and I'm starting to really earn a bundle in the market with the discovery of deep-out-of-the-money BAC naked puts. I'm not doing badly on Pfizer these days either come to think of it.
> The only experience they will be getting that I won't will be shivering. I can live without THAT experience.

All real equity investors are always prepared for the inevitable bear or crash. All that needs to be done is to not be so extended that the decline destroys your investment plan and leaves you in a ridiculous situation where you need to borrow or mortgage your home to stay in the game. Indeed, nearly all equity investors are prepared for a crash.
Yes, all intelligent investors are prepared for the next crash. The fact that it is the intelligent ones leaves you out. That first paragraph in your message displays your ignorance perfectly.
> I'll be completely out of contact with the outside world
You've been out of contact with reality for several years now, so a few days out of contact with the outside World should be no problem for you.
