Yep, this was one of our bonus 'justifications'. In event of a hurricane evacuation order , we would have the option of being able to take off or take refuge in it within the Cat 5 rated storage facility where we keep it.

We live in a house with wood heat, a propane cookstove, and a natural pond in the front yard. It's already "bug-out central"!

For us, camping in the Trillium is a step UP in the handy-facilities world...

Just heard a 7.7 earthquake hit BC last night and Tsunami warnings on the Oregon south coast into California. This topic is reality.

Everyone in the affected areas okay?

Donna, it was indeed a big wake up call for everyone who doesnt have a plan!
The good news is the center of it was close to a fairly low population area - most wood framed homes no high-rises etc. and it was not a deep one, fairly shallow so they had a real good rock and roll but not the more violent shaking that would have generated great damage had it been deeper. Down in the Vancouver area it was really only felt by those in high rises - again more of a roll than a hard shake. So the only real scary part for me was the tsunami warning & having to wait to hear that family who were evacuated from their coastal town were all going to be ok.

We live in the country so have a well. We also have a 20,000 watt whole house generator, are in a spot where flooding is impossible so we'd stay home. Only things that could disrupt us would be tornados (very unlikely right here) or strong winds blowing down trees onto our house which is about 15 feet from 50 acres of timber.

My family are definitely into emergency preparedness and the the Scamp 13 that I am picking up tomorrow (yea !!) is part of the plan. It will always be in the "ready to go" mode. We just grab our 72 hour kits and throw them in the fully stocked Scamp. All set. Need to add Solar. Water tank will be filled on leaving plus I carry a water purfication filter.

While we rarely have destructive earthquakes in Tennessee, we do have significant tornado activity. The stored Scamp and house will not be close together in the hope that at least one will survive. The Scamp also gives me a quick mobile platform when my friends and I go to help out with tornado cleanup. Wish I had a Scamp when we did a cleanup in Alabama last year.

Right Coast report

We got home today (northern Delaware) from Catoctin Mtns. MD. and Burnt Cabins PA for an almost "not attended" egg rally. Rain off Sandy started after we backed into the driveway. Wife off to grocery and gas station while I unloaded. After unloading, I set the dorm fridge on 7 and put a few bottles of ice in there. Then I put about two dozen Coolwhip containers full of water in the freezer in the basement. Then I rounded up all the loose crap outside, counted sealed water bottles (five of five gal. each and nearly full one on the water cooler) so about thirty gal. Got the double bit axe from the barn. May fill a couple of water bladders for hygienic purposes but that may be the least of our worries if we loose windows or get trees down on the house. If the trailer survivces wind, might be useful to do a bit of cooking on propane.

That was one of my main reasons for buying my 16ft Scamp, have not even had it out yet and its already stocked for a couple weeks. It gives me a real secure feeling knowing I can hook up at a moments notice and head for the hills, just make sure your tow vehicle has a full tank at all times.

A member here from San Diego used to post about using their Casita once during a brush fire evacuation. They were allowed to set up camp in the stadium parking lot in Mission Valley. This was the first I heard about using a trailer for this purpose. Afterwards we stocked our trailer in case of a similar event. We've since had a number of brush fires that came close to us and one where evacuation was required but never had the time to hitch up the trailer.

Last year, when downed power lines took out power to homes in Pasadena, CA for up to a week, there were a number of residents, including several friends of mine, that evacuated all the way out to the driveway and lived in their Motorhomes (with generators) for the duration.

During the big fires east of San Diego 3-4 years back the NFL football stadium parking lot became a giant RV park for almost a month.
