You fly before the hurricane gets there, and you fly away from the hurricane. This isn't rocket science. All you really need to do is get far enough to somewhere you can rent a car where the roads aren't jammed.
I've got my pilot's licence, and I've flown in a storm - That shit is hairy, yo.
I would definitely not fly IN the storm. I would only fly if it were away from the storm. If it's too late, and the roads are jammed. If it's that situation, money won't help and a bag wont' help.
If all transit is dead, and I have to travel more than a few hundred miles entirely on my own, in an emergent situation, there's no point in preparing for that.
leave on my bike. Traffic means nothing to a bike, and I could be well upstate in half-a-day with a good deal of provisions in my backpack.
I love how some people prepare for (practically) the end of civilization as we know it, and then make fun of Zombie Apocalypse survival plans.
Also, I'll laugh my ass off when you get hindered by traffic on your bike because people are morons who will rage at you riding a bike past them.
and a book.
I do keep the equivalent in my car:
What provisions in what backpack? The backpack you fill during the emergency? WASTING MORE TIME. If your plan is "I'll grab my bike and go" then your BUB is prepared to get out of fuck with your bike. The entire concept of a BUB is to prepare beforehand instead of during an emergency. The latter wasting your time and resulting in you being more likely to forget important shit.
However, on the flipside, I assume Rym knows the area he lives in far better than I do - enough to select some shortcuts or alternative routes that wouldn't be clogged with a seething huddled mass of humanity, yearning to breathe free, or really, just to continue breathing in general. I mean, there's plenty of ways out of Manhattan, and not all of them can be entirely clogged.
In the event of a true, full evacuation, I'd probably be better off staying in the city until it calmed down.
My brother has a9mm Kel Tec rifle.
Also, I spend much of my time at work. There, I have a disaster kit which includes a gas mask, oxygen supply, flashlight, rappelling kit, rape whistle, and other assorted goodies.
We have most of the goods needed for the bug out bag, but I have to assemble them in one place. After that earthquake and now this hurricane, me and Jed are realizing we need to be prepared more.
There is only one piece of emergency gear anyone ever needs; a scary looking gun. You don't bother packing a bag, you point the gun at somebody who has a bag, and you take it. You don't bother packing food, you point a gun at a person with food, and you take it. You need money, you point the gun at Scott, and you take his money. And if somebody tries to do the same to you, you use the gun to defend yourself. When order has broken down, force is the only thing that matters.
