A government travel bag will save you from the zombie apocalypse.
The world’s most popular travel item has been around for decades.
It’s now an essential tool in the survival of any American.
But it’s also become a source of concern to some of the nation’s most active and ambitious residents.
“I’m afraid that I’ll be one of those people who’s never been in a bag, ever,” said Mark Gwynne, a former Army combat veteran.
He’s an avid traveler, but now has a bag he’s saving for a possible apocalypse.
Gwynnes new bag is a government travel travel card.
(Natalie DiMaggio/CBC)”You just can’t buy that one,” he said.
“You just cannot buy that bag.
It was a piece of crap.”
Gwynney is not alone in his concerns.
Travel cards have become a hot topic after an outbreak in Kentucky in April, which has left one man dead and nearly two dozen others hospitalized.
Gatherings of local, state and federal officials, and the travel card industry have all weighed in.
The United States has about 4.2 million cardholders.
And while the government travel cards do come with a few benefits, many of them are not guaranteed, including a $20 annual travel fee and a two-year renewal.
A number of the cards also offer a lifetime discount if they have been used.
And in many cases, the value of the card is significantly lower than it appears.
Travel card companies offer a number of benefits, but some are not available to all people.
In some cases, you may have to pay a small amount to apply for a card, which is generally waived if you have a medical condition that can limit the number of visits you can make.
You can also use a card to buy a variety of other items such as gas and groceries.
Some card issuers offer a $1,000 credit toward a trip to an island in the Bahamas or to a beach vacation in Hawaii, which have been described as a “fairyland” of convenience and luxury.
“It’s not just a good trip, it’s a great trip,” said Gwynns mother, Mary, who said her son was one of the lucky ones.
“If he has to go somewhere, and he’s going to be going somewhere for 10 days, that’s a trip.”
She also pointed out that the government cards are the “silver bullet” when it comes to surviving the apocalypse.
“There’s no one else that can give you the information and get you the answers you need, and make sure you’re prepared,” she said.
The good news is that many people who are concerned about the health of their families and loved ones are finding ways to use the cards.
One man in Arizona who’s also a veteran told CBC News that he and his wife were “living like zombies.”
He said they used a government card to purchase airfare, lodging and food to a Caribbean vacation with friends.
“We had no problem getting it paid for,” he told CBC.
“The problem was the $2,000 was just a way to make us feel good about ourselves.”
In fact, the cards were the best deal they could find at a resort in Florida.
“They had the best rates, they had the lowest fees, and we paid less than the cost of the tickets and hotel,” said Michael DeBary, a retired Army colonel and a former Marine Corps commander.
“When you pay the price for what you want and the service that you want, you’re going to get the best deals.”
Many of the travel cards have a limited lifetime warranty, which requires the cardholder to keep their card for at least a year and to continue using it until it’s no longer needed.
A travel card company in Arizona told CBC that it has received numerous complaints about its policies.
“In the end, you’ll have to use your travel card and have it for a minimum of three years to renew it,” said Dan Rizzo, the company’s director of communications.
But for many, it doesn’t matter.
“Even though I’ve never had to pay the cost, I’m glad that I have a government trip card,” said Roberta McBride, a woman who has been traveling for the past 10 years.
“All of the good that I’ve been able to do has come with it.
I’ve got my passport and my credit card, so I don’t need to use a government or a private travel card.”
