I just thought of something to put in my 'Go' bag.

Post by Ratty » Wed May 16, 2018 7:40 am

I recently realized that burners keep a 'go' bag that's not for a natural disaster. What if you're asked to tend bar at a steampunk festival 90 miles away? You may overnight in your car afterwards. Or if a friend texts you that they have an extra ticket to the ukulele orchestra. It's 60 miles away in an hour and a half.

Thus, the go bag. Besides the bag I have 3 complete costumes hanging. There's a note on each telling me what shoes and accessories I need to grab.

The car has a small inflatable mattress, blanket, emergency food and water. (And instant coffee sticks in case I find boiling water.)

Also I keep a back pack ready to grab. Just add wallet and keys.

There is no group better prepared to party.

Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Us country livin’ folks call that “my truck”.

Everything a renaissance soul needs to save the world. And enough tools to build a house when you get there.

Just add the dogs and go.

My little travel trailer IS my "go bag" I keep it inside my shop plugged into shore power. It is pre-loaded with clothes, frozen prepared meals, canned goods, and even a few MREs for grins. I can back my truck up, unplug, hitch up, and be out the door in less than 30 minutes.

Since I'm retired, I camp spontaneously. I may wake up in the morning and decide to go somewhere for a day or 30 days.

You know, like Caine in “KUNG FU.” Just walk (drive) from town to town, meet people, get in adventures. [apologies to Jules Winnfield]

Don't you mean "go bin"? Because if bins count, I've totally got one of those and no it's not just because I haven't ever really unpacked it from the playa...

A bottle of melatonin. Just in case I can't sleep due to the ringing in my ears from sky net.
Laika and me went on a ride.
