And I am sure every one knows about my fealing on my family. BUT my dad is on the "Band-Wagon" this after-noon we are going to get together and do his and my step mothers 72 hour kit. When he said that I gave him all the food for his "starter" kit. (Heat Water, eat food!)
Interestingly enough, I don't see The Big One as being a bug-out event. The devastation will be bad, true, and to one degree or another, widespread; but get a few hundred miles from the San Andreas and the only affect you're likely to experience will be traffic delays caused by the convoys of supplies heading to the west coast.
Plus, in my case, assuming I wasn't squished like a bug, I'll be working so much that my OT-swollen paychecks would be staggering. Whether or not I'd even have to tap into my personal supplies is an interesting question... the City has a lot of supplies stashed away to keep things running in an emergency.
In my case, bugging out from a local disaster, no matter how bad, would be career suicide... does anyone know what happened to the public safety personnel who fled New Orleans after Katrina? I'm actually curious, now that I think about it...
But given a disaster of sufficient magnitude, we're talking apocalyptic, heading for the hills becomes the only option.
Soooooo... whereabouts in Utah should I be heading? *grin*
