I've been thinking quite a bit lately about the physical ability requirements of "getting home" if it involves more than a 20 mile trek.. I think that if I lived in earthquake country, a used $150 mountain style bike with heavy duty inner tubes, a small hand air pump, rim tools, and patch kit on a used bike rack might make sense...add some luggage racks/panniers to lash your pack too, even if you had to push the bike, would make your passage considerably easier, especially if you are my age.....my planned route home would be to follow existing roads, and use the off road capabilities if required

for bacpacjac... is there a place to stash a bike at work... lock it up, remove the seat to preclude theft?
