Thanks for the link. Very interesting read that is both detailed and also quite long (I haven't finished it yet!) but well worthwhile. A nice complement to ETS.

I have several storage bins that are always packed with my gear and food. Things are rotated out as needed. Other important things to grab would be my network storage and important papers. Also very quick grabs.

Since this is a push-come-shove situation, I could easily pack just about everything that I need. I have pared down my clothes and a lot of other things. Generally, food, meds, recharged tool batteries and the radio they fit, the dog and his food, my Bible, my tank laptop with charger, phone with charger, 2 or 3 extension cords, blankets, pillows, and lots of toilet paper and paper towels. The problem for me is that I don't have enough water. I better take care of that. Also, I need to get a new 12-volt inverter for the car. Oh, and all my mortgage paperwork and passports.

this is a good exercise if you are bored over the weekend and have an hour to practice

not necessarily on topic, but a tip from the old hands that used to use my school as a hurricane shelter..just in case you have to evacuate to a destination you don't originally plan on...

folding aluminum chaise lounge to sleep on, or sit upright to converse with others to pass time... ventilated and cool, keeps you off the ground....mosquito bar

rolling Sears plastic tool box with telescoping handle... can sit on,and offers some lockable security...., with multi day cooler bungeed on top... flip flop shower shoes so your wet feet can dry, along with nylon shorts and top... you are going to get wet
