It depends on the scenario and the season. Last summer a knock on the door and a fireman told me to evacuate NOW because of a gas leak next door. I
couldn't start my car or grab anything from it. The worst thing was not being able to find a toilet for a few hours, lol.
The bottled water I
kept in my car trunk tasted awful after sitting in the heat for a couple of weeks, so no more food stored in my car. I have a couple of candles and a
couple of bics though as well as en emerg blanket.
Back in 98, I survived the ice storm for several days thanks to warm clothing and a fondue pot. My place was frigid. I was able to heat water in it
for coffee, then toss in a bouillon cube and drop in a couple of eggs or noodles, and opened the back door for a miute to allow the gas to escape. It
was way too dangerous to go outside because of the wires and falling trees, but the worst thing of all was that I found myself going nuts because of
the lack of news. So the first thing I bought afterwards was an inexpensive windup radio at my local drug store.
I don't ever plan to live outdoors unless it for a really short period. I'm just not made for that. So if something happens that I choose to
leave, I`ll have to pack then and there. I don't feel safer at home, but there's only one main road within several miles, and I just don't trust
looter and gunpacking people on the road. I like to read a lot too, and keep some reading material in my car, a first aid kit, some cheap masks,
candles and bics. I stocked up on food last year, but as times are tough right now, I have to rely on it.
So when TSHTF wish me luck, just as I wish it for all of you!
