And keep your clothing dry. If you need to become mobile, wrap your clothing in several garbage bags. Once in the first bag, knot it tightly, then
keep repeating several times. If you have a dry bag for sailing or water sports, use it.
group sets of clothes together. Pant shirt, underwear, socks. Then wrap them and tie them. repeat wrapping several times. Then do it again. Don't bog
yourself down with a big wardrobe, you will regret it.
One set you wear, take two sets of clothes with you.
Wrap extra socks and underwear in separate bags, as sets. You'll go through more of them than say shirts.
In all your first bags, you should put in two extra unused bags, folded neatly ready for use. These bags will be one use if your knot is nice and
tight and waterproof. Once torn open, you'll always need new bags for something, like dried clothing you have washed and want to keep dry. So if you
put in two extra bags in the first bag, you'll have all the bags you may need.
Water and electricity does not mix. Assume everything is live 100% of the time.
Don't forget your small battery operated radio.
Wheres your ID and important documents? Same idea, keep em dry.

Stay calm, rubber tires are easy to find, they do not absorb water, and will light when diesel fuel is put inside them and lit. They burn hot, don't

Water does not run up hill. remember that when your building shelters or bedding down for the night.
Protection. If you do not know what you are doing here, leave this out. I can see people grabbing butcher knives and then falling on them when they
are stumbling around on debris.
Avoid large groups, you know what I am saying here.
Don't be flashy. be humble, and quiet.
One last thing.
remember, you have not been forgotten about. There will be many good men and woman en-route to help you.
