Long-term travel raises my chance of death exponentially. Should my time come, to make things easier for my friends and family. I created a will, health care directive, durable power of attorney and my wishes for final arrangements. I used Willmaker Premium with Living Trust. It walks you through the process step by step. It provides instructions for you and instructions that you can print out for whomever you've named as your executor. Make sure you get everything notarized. I think it's fine to use a previous years version. These laws don't change that much from year to year: unless you have a complicated estate. In which case, you probably shouldn't be using this kind of software and hire an attorney. Keep the Will with a trusted friend or attorney while you're traveling. Let the executor and the alternate executor know where the will is located before you leave. Also make a list of institutions that you have financial relationships with to keep with the will. FYI - When I die I want to be thrown out of a plane wearing a superman costume.
