Got down to the business today of putting together an emergency throw&go backpack.
Well, started to put it together. Still can and will be improved upon and added to as I think of necessities that might fit.
I figure it can't hurt. Say the Event has happened. I drive as far to wherever as my auto will get me. For whatever reason it too must be abandoned.
Maybe I'm Still in Houston, maybe I'm halfway to Alaska, maybe I'm gods only know.
Reach over and grab my Jansport pack:
Change of clothes
~5 days food. Sparing, but sustain you
Spare hiking boots
Knife (in addition to the pocket one I carry)
Matches and lighter
Tinder-- keep dryer lint in a ziplock...
Water is handy- in the trunk of the car in one and two-liter containers.
Likely a sundry or two in the glovebox and the console that could be quickly added.
Tools in their box in the trunk, but I'd like to add a good hand-sized hatchet. Maybe a beltholder-fitted one...
Need to add a bathroom kit-- spare toothbrush, med tape, nail clippers. et cetera
Maps. So I can follow the yellow brick road home. Whatever that is. Whatever, wherever. I have 5 days to decide.
Now, can I only be blessed to make it past the Zombie threshold...
And now, skip straight to the comment section if you don't think this song is your valentine.
