"Keep in mind that you may not be able to download updates while on the road, due to bandwidth constraints, for example. Should Apple release an important update right before you go, download it to your desktop and keep it in a cool, dry place (so to speak) until you can install it safely--i.e. you have backed up your data and are able to react in the unlikely even of an upgrade-related issue. This can be done by using the "Download only" menu item, available through the "Update" menu of the Software Update application."
