First mistake, I have no friends so there would be no unnecessary calls made by them.

2nd I said to the wife give me a 2 - 3 day window past my expected time as the country is rough and there may be a chance of some minor deviations.

3rd if you honestly play it safe all you have to worry about are freak turns of events and they are just that (rare occurrences). 99% of people who perform solo activities in these regions return safely those that don't usually have stories to tell that make you shudder at lack or prep/knowledge of just plain awful luck
