Re: Bug out boat

We're totaly self contained .. throw off the lines and we're good for a year or so..
had an instance a few years ago that was impressive..
We had stopped at Brookings Oregon on our way back down from the far north.. While there they had a tsunami warning.. and we all know when one of those comes in, you want "Deep" water..
We untied the boat and were headed out withing 1 to 2 minutes.. joining us was another 3 or 4 cruisers equepted as we, but it was kind of funny watching all the people running up and down on the docks throwing crap around, and trying to get there boats ready to leave..
Went a few miles offshore and spent a couple hours bobbing around and chatting with others.. the warning came and went, nothing happeded that day, but it did show the difference between those that are ready and those that say they are..
Bugging out for us is just another day on the water.. this is where we live.
