Odd.  You must be confusing the thread.  Try reading what I said again.

Litterate.  Not so in the underworld, apparently.

No answer?

Any evacuation plans I might have don't include Afghanisan, no.  Cash buys
nice things like gasoline, yes.

If I'm bugging out 22 miles doesn't seem very important, no.

...and a few times that, immediately available were I need to bug out. That is
about the extent of my hurricane plans, however.

The one thing that I learned when I had to do disaster recovery plans was to
define the scope of the problem.  A hurricane is about the extent of the
threat I'll deal with (leave).  A nuke isn't worth worrying about.  I'll let
those in NYC worry about that one.

I have the perfect plan for California earthquakes.  I promise. I won't be a
burden to you.

I doubt it.  I'll be bugging out.

Id erased the previous posts. So if I were interested enough..Id dump
all the postings, including the saved ones and redownload all the posts.
Frankly..Im not that interested in your denial.   I do recall the
subject of your having a 5 gallon can on hand...or something about a 5
gallon can yada yada.

Shrug. But as it turns out..you only have a 2 gallon can on hand. Which
is of course..far worse...less intelligent than Id given you credit for.

Afghanistan?  Oh..sorry...I didnt realize you would try bluster and
foolishness so soon.

That statement speaks volumes as well. Sadly.

But of course Superman!

But of course. Chortle.

To where..and for how long?

That is indeed the question..isnt it?

But as I said..its your life, your choices and your family (assuming you
have one)

Just make your choices wisely. They are the only hope you have.

Now Im done with this.

in contrast to the popular conception supported by newspapers
and mothers of Leftwingers, a goodly number of Leftwingers are
not only narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid.

You obviously don't remember because I have never owned a 5-gal gas can.  I
asked how one stored gas safely and without it going bad.

Wrong.  Having more gas on hand or a can larger than required for the gas
needed is far worse than having a smaller can.

You're the one who things I'd be in such an unfriendly place.  I don't live in
Kalifornica either.

I wish you'd keep your story straight.  You're the one who claims that I can't
get ten miles without carrying extra gas and are now changing your story to 32
miles.  You must be worried about the 22 miles, now.

Just stating the facts, GI Joe.

Anywhere I feel like going at the time.  I have family in enough places that
I'm not too worried about time.

Good.  Try reading next time.

You guys have it rough.  The most I have to worry about is wildfire and
earthquakes I guess.  But if an earthquake knocked my house down I'd be
staying here anyway.

As for wild fire I'd just have to get across the river.

It's aready 20mile round trip to the gas station so i've always got
enough gas for that (+ more usually for the quad and generators)

My mom has to worry about tsunami but she could just come up to my house
-- i'm about 10 miles into the mountains from the coast so noproblemo.  
Flooding does hit a lot but all that does is take out bridges.  My house
is far enough up the hill not to worry about direct flooding.

You guys are kind of nuts to be living down there in Hurricane land with
all those millions of people needing to move at the same time.  It must
be pure hell (but otherwise really nice I guess)

best of luck
