Finish re-packing car kit.

Buy a water filter.

Organize and update primary FAK.

Update emergency binder (hat tip to Blast)

Finally get time off to go camping and try out new homemade "coffee can" stove

1. BOB re-do

Currently we have a single household bug out bag because of compromise with DW.

This fall/winter will be breaking that up into individual BOBs for DW and DD. (watching our friend having to bail out of her house during Gustav when the tree hit convinced me).

2. Screen the windows.
Been wanting to do that and 5 days/no power moved it up the priority list.

3. Re-fit the hurricane plywood for the windows.

Tired of carry the drill around and boogering holes in the window trim. Going to install permanent bolts to slide the plywood onto and secure with wing-nuts.

Enlarge the "port holes" in the plywood and cover with double layer Plexiglas to let more light in and decrease the claustrophobia effect on DW and DD.

Paint plywood to match house so I can get away with leaving it up longer and to protect it.

4. Annual rotation of supplies.
DD is already licking her chops in anticipation of the windfall of spagettios and ravioli.

5. Get Reflectix and make "cooler cozy".

6. Put Wind-able radio on my Santa list.

7. Score some MRE's to put in bug out bags.
Been putting that off.

Looking for a better place to live. Roommate situations are here tolerable, but I won't bring any of my firearms or any tool other than my computer here. If I can find a better place, I need a better/bigger BoB body- the THE pack, even with the stuff I've got strapped to it, won't handle Plan B.

When a man dare not speak without malice for fear of giving insult, that is when truth starts to die. Truth is the truest freedom.
