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.

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!
