Glad to hear you are ok. I've hydroplaned my Jeep Grand Cherokee and almost totaled it. I luv my Jeep. Was wondering how its smaller brother held up. Looks good.

I'm really conscious of getting hung up under water, so anything on my person will be inside a lifejacket pocket or really strapped down. No loose laynards hanging around my neck. The whistle is clipped on the lifejacket.

I have a similar case by Pelican. I'm working on a bare bones survival kit for the lifejacket (fire starters, water purification). The case will barely fit in the lifejacket pocket. I have a small waterproof IFAK for the other pocket.

As a result of a hurricane I learned a valuable lesson, when widespread SHTF you and your family are on your own. It took a week to get relief into town. Rural areas are not high priority.

Have ordered Condor pouches, and products have been fair, loose threads, etc. I wouldn't spend a lot of money on their products by mail order. Perhaps if I visually inspected each piece.

I've been impressed by Spec-Ops and Maxpedition gear.

It is good to have all the supplies and meds on hand so you don't have to leave the house.

Just think if bird flu were being spread by humans in the US what effect a trip to the grocery or drug store would have.

Becareful handling firearms, sweating off a fever I sometimes have wild dreams.

I don't feel so bad now, I've got Batman bandaids in mine too. Wallyworld likes to get rid of whatever isn't in style, so Batman got reduced down to a low price, a dime a box.

Watch the garage doors, heard a story floating around town after a hurricane. A woman said her and the husband spent several hours pushing a dining room table against their garage door to keep it from blowing inwards.
