When journeying, I take effort not to: 1) antagonize armed people, 2) step in front of speeding vehicles, and 3) lose my memory cards. For the latter, I keep an old zip-up calculator carry case in my Ameribag. In this case are backup batteries, memory cards, and MiniMagLite bulbs. When it's card-swap time, one comes out and one goes in. In a little attache is my mini-Laptop and a card-reader. When it's image-download time, card comes out of camera (or calculator case) and into the reader, my move-files script runs, and the card goes right back into camera (or case). Nothing lost, nothing ventured, no stinking ID.
That's pretty much how I handle it, with a slight variation. I have a battery operated Colorspace backup unit, it is light and easy to carry and I carry it with me whenever I know I wont have a chance to backup to my computer anytime soon.

You just turn the unit on, stick the card in the slot of the unit and let it run. Wen the backup process is done I put the just backed up card in a dedicated card holding wallet type of thing and put a new card in the cam. And I carry the Colorspace and card wallet on me in different locations if possible.
