My biggest concern here in the PNW is the big earthquake that is bound to come. They say that ours wont come as a 7.4, but as a 9.4. My problem is I'm tied to the dock, and if I was away from the boat I dont know if I could get back to it before it was destroyed. It may not be a cause to immediately run offshore, but we may have to be self sustainable for quite some time. ..that reminds me, I better hit Trader Joe's today for a case of 'chuck'.
