    There is always another event, a hurricane, a firestorm, flooding, something.

    My #1 priority in situations like that is to ensure that my wife is safe. After that, I keep a "go bag" loaded with 2 pistols (i.e. a .45 and a 9mm) w/4 boxes of ammo for each and other necessities. Plus, my EDC piece w/2 extra mags that's on me. So, I can mobilize quickly w/3 pieces and ammo if need be. That's how I choose to roll.

Aside from edc, it will be difficult.
    I'm with you on this. We're in a very rural area, we have a few acres, we're a decent distance from the local road, we're high up enough that if WE get flooded, well, there's a whole lot else going on. We have close access to an interstate highway, but that would, as you said, be a mess. A fire would cause us to bug out to the neighbor's place, but guns and valuables are in a fireproof safe in the basement. Yeah, Imma stay here and shelter in place, and welcome my neighbors if they need a place.

    In revisiting this thread this morning I'm finding that it'd take longer to find my fishing gear than I'd like. I can get the requisite guns and ammunition outa here in under 90 seconds if need be.

    I think I'll have some nice ice cream instead. Has anyone tried Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream with Steen's Ribbon Can Syrup as a topping? Yum!

    May not get evacuated in time, but I'll die happy.

    I faced that a couple of years ago after properly securing the home for Hurricane Irma, in the end I was pretty knackered out and decided to stay put and hunker down then start deciding what to take on the road out of South Florida and to head towards Georgia along with 6.5 million other Floridians that were evacuating. My priority would be the dog and whatever he needs to be on the road for an extended period and a weekend bag with a few change of clothes. The biggest challenge was in securing important documents and in a foot locker chest of family photos along with taking at least 10 or 15 gallons worth of gas as loads of gas stations were running out on the Florida Turnpike plus there was huge lines. As for guns & ammo that would have been quite simple and quick, as it's just my home defense handgun, and my EDC along with my AR rifle... as well as the ammo that goes with these, it would have been the least of my worries to be honest...

    Did it in 2017 because of hurricane Harvey. Took better part of 30 minutes for guns and ammo.

    Evacuate? Good Lord, where to begin? Guitars, banjos, digital piano, guns, ammo, fly rods/reels, what else?
    Oh, yeah. Wife and dog, I guess....
