Thanks for your post, threef...it puts reality right in the lap of where we wanna "hypothesize."

Many of us have never thought about what to leave, what to take--what can't be replaced, or what matters most...good stuff to chew on here.

Re: Massive fire hits our town, evacuations of over 4K now

Like most here I have participated in much debate on the so called shtf moment.
I think it helped because I have a quick go-bag a Max Remura that I have all the time. A Max Computer bag with many more thngs including a Sig and a laptop. Bleed kits strapped on my gun bags. Sleeping bags rolled tight and two Army wool blankets.

A dozen MRE's in a ruck and another ruck with lots of military clothing including two rain coats ruberized, flares, small aid kit, line, batteries, etc.
But suddenly having to load is a shock.
So I packed those items plus a small suitcase for my wife and son, a med kit with our meds, and lots of smart-water.

But, it was a shock. Then as I stood firewatch yesterday along the main evaq route I saw bumper to bumper vehicles of every kind and saw that nearly everyone had filled their vehicles with all kinds of different things.

A "...med kit with all our meds..." --Great thinking there. Serious.

What is "smart-water?" Not that aspartame crap that has NO electolytes, is it??

I would love to peek into vehicles on an evac route, just to see what folks call important...wouldn't you?
