I live in the city, in Philadelphia, and our doomsday scenario is the catastrophic failure/fireball of the Sunoco refinery.

My Burro lives in the South Philly U-Haul Self Storage Center of Excellence less than a mile away from the refinery, so I'm counting on just staying in good enough shape to outrun the zombies.

That's the stadium (Qualcomm) I was referring to in my post. What was unusual about this fire and there were many of them was how far West it reached. The Casita owner I mentioned was in Rancho Bernardo. In all the years I lived in San Diego I never saw fires so widespread.

I had not considered the emergency use aspect of a small travel trailer but now that you mention it (or now that I am a member and just saw the thread) it is a grand idea. The very things that a make a little trailer a great camping vehicle, would make it great for emergencies. Beyond that, the mere act of gathering the supplies and equipment to go camping into one place make the trailer a real asset in an emergency. I have lots of close friends and family nearby if I had to go live somewhere else short term in an emergency. The fact that I have my own digs and supplies means that the number of people who would have me, and the duration of my stay, could increase exponentially. Another aspect is that somebody that comes to stay with me could have their own place out in the trailer if the house is full up or they just needed/wanted privacy. Heck, I might move out and give them the house if it gets bad enough!
