You've got to get out of your place because of a disaster and you have to grab what you can carry. What would you grab? One guy in NOLA grabbed a framed comic book off his wall.

I've got all my film negatives in one notebook in a closet near the front door. I guess I'd also grab my binder of recipes I've saved.

 

So if you could just grab what you could carry, what non-vital (identification, money and financial papers) valuables would you grab?

I'd grab that awful porn video that Derek and I made with his father's camcorder when we were teenagers. Since he's a total top now, it's the only proof I have that he used to let me fuck his hot little ass. }(

 

I just asked Derek what he would grab and without skipping a beat, he said, "You." :)

One cat under each arm (and the laptop over my shoulder) and I'm outta here.

 

Hopefully, the cats will cooperate getting into their carriers. One usually does, but the other puts up a fight every time. There's hissing. (Him too.)

 

If a life-threatening situation says "LEAVE NOW!", I'll take my boys and be gone. Everything else can be replaced.

I hate to sound so materialistic (but I am) but I'd quickly stuff a duffel with the most important objets d'art I've collected during my wanderings the past few years. These would include:

 

A 1963 Tush Kiyiz from Kyrgyzstan (the year I was born)

 

An amazing hand-woven (so tight as to hold liquid!) very old camel-milk container from Ethiopia.

 

A Palekh painted box from Russia showing a mermaid tickling a handsome young man (!!!!!!!)

 

A tam-tam from Ambrym Island, Vanuatu.

 

A series of photos I took of Nepenthes and Rafflesias from Mt. Kinabalu in northern Borneo.

 

... you know, I probably just wouldn't make it out alive. Too much stuff to carry.

 

Oh well... as they say, die young(ish) and stay pretty!

I have a 72-Hour Kit that contains everything necessary for me and my little guy to survive for 3-4 days. That's the first thing I'm grabbing.

 

Next I'd take the computer or my lastest backup disks. I've scanned most pictures, journals, and family history info that's important to me.

 

Finally, would be my favorite guns from the collection (the ones that would be difficult to replace).

 

I'd then head to my second home. It's stocked with supplies, generator, and solar power and is located in an area that is much less likely to have problems. I estimate I could probably be self-sufficient there for about 5-6 months.

But what about your blue-and-black beaded bubushka with the blended bugle beads? You can't leave THAT!:+ :+

>Where's your backup escort? At the 2nd home? Freeze-dried? Flash-frozen?:+

 

Well, with the cost of weekend escorts now up to $4,000 I didn't feel I could afford a backup. But, there are a couple of guys I'd be very willing to have share my bed in a crisis if they'd trade a little companionship for a some safety, comfort, and solitude. :D

 

So, any escorts that are looking for a wilderness adventure? Plenty of hunting, fishing, fresh air and country living.

Nice to see you back, OneFinger. I hear that you have been out in the desert for several days on survival training, eating only finger food.

 

But back to the subject at hand, I would save my parrot! He can be quite comforting in an emergency!:)
