Nothing, you will spontaneously combust when you stay away from your guitar for longer than three weeks. Sorry dude, life is hard.

Hey me too, do you ever feel like you should have played left handed? Sometimes I do because I can move my ring finger on my right hand without having to curl up my pinky but i can't do it on my left. haha oh well!

One time I traveled I was so dissapointed I didn't take my guitar, so the next time I took the neck off the body and packed it in between my clothes for easier handling. Once I unpacked it I just screwed it together and wal-la my baby was back in my hands!!!
This sucks if you have a molded neck!!!

I'd take a guitar if I were you, not just to keep your chops up, but what if you encounter some new found inspiration, you have an idea in your head and you wanna play it. I mean your gonna be encountering a lot of new sights and music when you go over there. I left to Mexcico once without a guitar I was trying to sleep in my room and some pretty sweet melodies were running through my head as I was trying to sleep...but no guitar. Dude, it sucked, all I could do was scream.
