Notes to the unprepared:
The highways may be closed. Do you have an alternative route planned?
Do you have enough fuel for that alternative route? Maps? Provisions? Safety gear?
Do you have Emergency BOB's ready?
Do you include water and provisions? Toilet paper?
That's a very minor list based on news reports today from the Colorado Springs Waldo Canyon Fire:
Gasoline stations are out of gas;
Stores are out of water, many staples, and toilet paper.......
I shudder in disbelief. The news reports today were entertaining, frightening, amusing and disheartening.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
