You know, there have been times when even the worst truckstop sludge has brought a smile to my face. smile Nowadays I always have a couple of packs of instant, creamer, and sugar in my day bag. And a pack of Jolt or Stayalert gum as backup of course.

Coffee drinking barbarians! A nice cup of tea will sooth the soul and calm the mind.

Actually, it probably helps to simply cup the hands around a warm container. I'll bet warm water would work just as well as either tea or coffee in double blind tests. Well, maybe the caffeine does help.....

thank you my fellow caffine addicts, for the reminder to re-stock my pack with instant cappicino, vanilla flavour this time. mmmMMM! Hot, sweet, caffinated liquid.

40ft sailboat (living in it already)

About 3-4 kilograms of spices (whole black peppers, dried chili peppers, nutmeg nuts, cloves, cinnamon, fennel, aniseed), and dried herbs (basil, thyme, dill, oregano, powdered ginger, powdered garlic, pretty potent curry powder). Probably left out half the stuff but can't be bothered to go rummage through.

A handful of pens and pencils plus a sketch pad (I draw, a lot). Maybe some water colours.

A few small and pretty light weight marionettes (Once there's kids around, I can become the first post-holocaust birthday clown).

And for ultimate in style if not practicalness, a bright red unicycle with flame patterns on the rims.

I'm so glad I quit caffeinating and smocking - less gear and supplies to store and carry. More space for ammo reloading supplies instead. I think, that was the best thing I've done for preparedness.
