(climbing on soapbox)
As backpackers, we're probably slighlty better than most folks at
surviving in adverse conditions. I'd like to take this time to remind
all of you to create or update your distaster kits for both your home
and your car. EVERY place on our pretty little planet is prone to
some sort of disaster and it pays to be prepared. There are lots of
resources out there to help you create a kit tailored to your needs -
the Red Cross, FEMA, state and local agencies, etc.
I offer my students the chance to get 15 extra credit points by
creating a car EQ kit
please feel free to use it if you'd like. I'd give you the extra
credit points but you'd have to enroll in one of my classes first . . .
Holler if you need help or advice!
