I recently finished making up the whole family's emergency packs,I got a good deal on ebay for a lot of gear including ALICE packs and other gear that you would want or need to put in your BOB or emergency pack.
The family (Wife & Sons) have taken to teasing me and calling me "Rambo" and "GI Joe".
It's good hearted ribbing but it still bothers me a little ,they always stand behind me in whatever I decide and this is no exception ,they willingly gave me some clothes for thier pack (with some grumbles).
Now the packs are put away for safe keeping until we ever need them (hope never) and the teasing has stopped but I felt like maybe I am being a little paranoid until I remembered the Boyscout motto from my childhood.
"Be prepared" and those reasons were explained to me at an early age why you should be prepared.    

Call me Rambo or GI Joe or what ever you want just so long as I do the Job of Husband and Father and the main job ,Protector of the family.

I knew you were keeping up with that thread Edsr, LOL
It must have killed him when I told him I was going to let you hit the ban button to boot him at HCT.
He threatened to call the feds on members and a few other reasons thats why I booted him.
I opened the door back up for him and it's his last chance at redemption,PERIOD!

People who have never experienced a significant earthquake think I'm crazy because I always carry 1 liter of drinking water, a first-aid kit, a small amount of food, tools, and extra clothing everywhere I go.

Let them think whatever they want.  I won't be the one drinking out of the toilet tank when the Big One hits.
