During a natural disaster my home would not be inhabitable. Earthquakes tend to law waste to houses if they are intense enough. If they just cut power or water, I'd like to have a place to go and sustain myself in the interim.

Jim, you almost sound like you're digging for a certain kind of answer. I think that the possibility of natural disasters of some kind is very real in most parts of the U.S. Anyone that lives in an area that is prone, and is not prepared, is at the mercy of others and their kindness. I don't want my family in that position.
