smoked

So I was going to whine about trivialities, but instead i too can sense the faint smell of smoke. I think i should stop buy the camping supply store and pick up a couple of things to make a little emergency pack. Admittedly it's unlikely that anything will happen to me other than poor air quality, but I really should have such a thing. (And perhaps a plan on how to meet up/communicate with my friends.

Hmm... I could contemplate getting a ham radio license.

Oh yes, more importantly if one needs to evacuate, what's the proper thing to do with a cat? Load her up in her carrier and drive some place far away?

Hmm.. this would imply that I need some spare cat food and something to give her water in.

B and I both have our ham licenses! I am KG6SFM... if you need a book or anything we have the materials to get the No-code Technician license. There ARE classes (free!) here and there if you learn best in a class, but if you learn good by reading a book I'm sure you can borrow our materials to do so!!!

1. Getting a Ham radio is only going to make you nerdier, and less likely to find a mate.

2. Forget about your freaking cat. She'll survive on her own in the new post apocalyptic world.

3. I understand wanting to have an emergency pack. I carry one with me every day. It's called a backpack.

This tone of your post seems unecessarily angry, bitter, condescending, or something else in that cluster of emotions.

having a 2-m ham walkie talkie isn't going to change my geek status much, and is useful for bringing people together in emergencies. Hams were rather popular in New York after 9-11.

I'd feel bad about letting my cat die by fire, and if its sufficiently post-apocolyptic, she's a portable meat source.

For emergency supplies, mostly I need to make sure I have enough water.
