I have this kit ready to go for when Clinton reappears as the Anti-christ and sets up ZOG roadblocks staffed by UN troops in Houston:

1 M1 Carbine, paratroop model
1000 rds .30 ammo, in clips and belts
1 Ruger .223 bolt action
500 rds Ammo in plastic containers
1 Glock 9mm
2 clips
500 rds Ammo in plastic containers
1 10 gallon "igloo" cooler
5 gallons water in 2.5 gallon jugs
2 sets binoculars
1 case of MREs

I will use this to make my way thru crowds crazed with anthrax to get to my brother's ranch, where we will make an Alamo last stand against triffids, zombies, or whatever else you got.


I actually have this in my car:

Toolbox full of odds and ends tools that might work if I breakdown.
1 can of fix-a-flat
Three eggs of Leggs panty hose (neat trick I learned from my dad- you can make a temporary fanbelt out of panty house, good for about 20 miles at 45 mph).
A couple of flares.
A beat up old Ithaca shotgun

Water, blankets, light markers and jumper cables in case myself or someone else is in need of help on the road and doesn't look too scary.

Mine are these:

Quite tasty. I eat them cold because when you are out hunting sloths you do not want to do anything that may cause them to run away.

All kidding aside, I bought them and ate a few of them just out of curiosity, it was not a gourmet meal, but not as bad as I was expecting considering they were cold. It is kind of like when you wake up at 2 am and open the fridge and eat a few spoonfuls of leftovers. It ios cold but it satisfies the hunger.

Yes I carry an emergency kit.

It includes several heart racing downloaded CD's for when I find another driver that is ready to one on one road race! Don't laugh it usually happens once every few months! Too much fun!

PS I keep everything tied down needless to say. Even in day to day driving. Minimal too. Can't have too much weight!

Well, given the right wing parinoia that is sweeping the country, our C 320 is armed with a couple of 50mm cannon just behind the front grille.
Also, we have the usal Uzi hadnguns right under the seats. That, coupled with a gernade or two in the glove box, makes us feel OK.

And, this was all a joke! We carry a couple of cell phones, period. We don't worry about weather, as when the weather might be bad tetween home and our destination, we fly.

Thanks,
Richard
