Disaster Planning

For those of you who full time or take extended long distance trips with your trailer. Do you have a contingency plan if the unthinkable happens and you crash a long way from home and your vehicles are not drive-able or tow-able? What is your plan to secure your belongings and is there someone you can call to help with this if you are injured?

If and when that happens I will let my insurance company deal with things. They cover some lodging and transportation. No plus to worry any further for the time being.

If I wasn't hurt but my tug and trailer was unusable due to wreck damage or major mechanical failure far from home and my insurance company wouldn't help, I'd buy a cheap car or truck and leave the damaged tug and/or trailer behind.

I've been in an almost that bad of a situation. My transmission in my tug went out 4 hours from home. I caught a ride with a friend home, and took another vehicle up to bring my camper home. The next day I hired a tow truck to bring the tug home. It was a $500 tow bill! (Ugh!).

To me, this most important part of diasaster planning is having my 4 cats microchipped and the chip company has a secondary contact if we are not available.

And just in case we have gone somewhere for just a long weekend and have left them at home with their weekend feeders stuffed, I have a dog tag on my key ring that Reads- My 4 cats are home alone, @ current address.

My spouse has seen too many incidents of people failing to secure their pets future. His will lists our animals and has me as the primary beneficiary and the secondary contact from the chip as sdecondary beneficiary in case I am incapable.
That's my job. I read...and I know things

Mostly, that's what insurance and roadside assistance is for. That plus a cellphone, and in case I'm really in the middle of nowhere an Inreach Explorer satellite communicator. Beyond that, no detailed plan for belongings. I'd probably pack up the bare minimum into a suitcase and stay in a hotel while I figure out what to do next.
