    Where do you get the idea that it would only by non-automotive transportation.

    How about a train derailment that spills a chlorine or other toxic gas. You have about 10 mins to grab whatever you need a leave the house for an undetermined amount of time.
    So you grab what you need and throw it in you vehicle and drive two towns over.
    Happened in Ohio not too long ago.

    Let those who are fond of blaming and finding fault, while they sit safely at home, ask, Why did you not do thus and so?I wish they were on this voyage; I well believe that another voyage of a different kind awaits them.

    Yep, we evac'd from Hurricane Irma and it took 13 hours to go from Pompano Beach to Ocala, almost ran out of gas a few times due to traffic becoming a parking lot for hours. I knew I didn't want to ride out a record breaking potential Cat 5 but driving away from your problems has many of it's own problems. There were people who didn't get the same head start that I did that ended up sheltering in their vehicle on the turnpike when the storm made land fall. Gas lines were incredible. The whole state decided to evacuate and hotels were sold out all the way to mid GA and AL.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    LOL, I'm with you! Besides, my wife would not even be able to read or tell them apart, even if I had them labeled.
    Good night Chesty...wherever you are.
