What's in your fuel tank?
I have suggested in the past about having a place to go to when staying at your home is not an option. Having options in place before a crisis can save valuable time and cut down on stress. I like to stress having at least 3 locations that you can use in times of need. Examples could be a short range location 2 to 3 miles away for a small emergency. For a small town emergency A location 40 to 60 miles away works, you do not want to walk this far do you? Now for the big one say a regional or in my case a western state emergency you could look at a couple of hundred miles to leave a crisis, doing so on less than a full tank of gas could be dicey in the very least and one of the last things you want to be doing is lining up at a gas station for gas you may or may not be able to get by the time you get to the pumps.
Make a plan, have options, don't run with the herd.
