Obviously the most important things of all are the people. Then we take only what is on the list depending on what kind of time we have. The safe covers much- important documents, adoption papers, money, passports and the computer's back up hard drive. It's heavy and so that's what either Daniel or I will get. We will have one kid on the washer and dryer getting 72 hour packs down and the other 2 loading them in the truck. You will need ID, make sure you grab your wallet! We will do a practice run to see how we fit 5 minutes of stuff into the actual 5 minutes. Listen to where the evacuation site is. Follow directions! Take phone numbers of loved ones so you can tell them you are safe. We have our evacuation list posted on the front door, the garage door and next to each phone. A knock on the door or a reverse 911 call will be the way to find out you need to evacuate.
We still need to tattoo our goats for ID. We don't have the goats on our list because we don't have any way to transport them. Even if we did, we would not have the time needed to hook up a trailer and get all 4 goats into it and then get all of our necessary items for human survival. It's the human survival that trumps everything. Even if you were to get out with only the clothes on your back, that is the best evacuation ever!!
