My new motto is "Grab and Go!"

Everything on this picture fits in my small Red Cross back pack, except for the helmet which fits on top. As a member of NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Team), I am prepared!

Note the universal (i.e. USB 2) phone charger: I want to be able to tweet the Big One!

    See the "ID Expired?" section here:
