In a free country, no. In a police state, yes. It is sad to think what has happened to our country where we are now concerned that putting medications in a different bottle "could cause me problems". It most certainly should NOT cause you problems. Are we a police state? No. Are we moving in that direction? Answer for yourself. Because people tolerate these "problems" happening, that is the reason that they keep happening, and with more frequency.

Anyway, that is not what this thread is about. But it does give one pause to think about it...

Sorry, I messed up the quote on that post. Fixed.

I can pick up shortwave news on it if I have to; I've done it enough to know that I can and remember some stations. It's not something I'm normally listening to. I'll pay more attention to local FM and AM stations if they're up.

I also have both Waves. I find I prefer the new version, primarily because of the locking feature. I still keep the old Wave handy - it's a fine tool.

Seems pretty complete, more than I carry. Les has made some good suggestions.

I actually found the neatest solution to this, the local chain of pharmacies (Duane Reade now owned by Walgreens or someone else) carries single doses of aspirin, benedryl, heart burns and one or two other meds in a powdered form in nice flat plastic envelops. They're a bit expensive, but flat and convenient.

Be nice haertig. I carry a spoon because if you buy yogurt at Wa-Mart all they have is forks. And I have a pair of chopsticks because they make nifty kogai type weapons. I was a bit thrown by the shopping bag, but the poster sounds enviromentally concious and it would be nice to have for spur of the moment shopping trips on the way home.

As it's NYC you might consider a space blanket or bag or SOL bivy in case you are forced to stay somewhere and must shelter there.
