Prepping, RV Style

You don't have to be some fringe lunatic to be a prepper. A lot of perfectly level headed folks are doing it. And you don't have to dig a big hole in the yard and stockpile it. IMHO everyone should have a "go" bag and a plan to egress, or exit, their home; especially a RV. Have undies, toothpaste, a bottle of water or two, medications, etc. (about a weeks worth) in a bag, ready to go. Have all your important papers in one place; we have a portable fire proof safe. There is more than the apocalypse to prep for. We have gate guards that have had to abandon their RV for all sorts of reasons; from floods to storms. We had to evacuate a gate due to a methane leak after the BOP failed. At the very least I would like for everyone to increase their situational awareness. Have a plan to get out should something happen. Finally, check ALL of your detectors and replace their batteries regularly.

  1. Good words of advice, Mark. Our "go" bag stands at the ready 24/7. We've had to use it a few times during the 6 years we've been full-timers. Like you, I encourage others to prepare theirs . . . just in case.
