My Comments on a Bug Out Vehicle - Prepared And Ready! - YouTube Video

Hi Lilly, I enjoy your videos and your tips are great. I think, our Vehicles are especially important things to consider. To have ready in an emergency. In reality, if we did have a need to "Bug Out". Most of us, would be caught on the Highway, in a long line of Traffic. This just happened in my State, TX, USA. Because of Hurricane Harvey and the resulting Floods. I have been carrying emergency gear, in my vehicles, since the 1970's. Probably, the most important thing. That, I have actually had to use, in an emergency. Was, a Fire Extinguisher (keep yours up to date, they do loose their propellant, over time). The first time, I had to use it. Was, because of an Engine Backfire. The Carburetor caught on fire. A Big fire. Not, just one of those common small Carb fires. That will burn them selves out, in less than a minute. I knew I had a Fire Extinguisher. So, I went to get it. First, I had to remember, where it was. Then, it was hard to get to. So, it took, what seemed like forever, to get it out. I did get it out in time and still had to use it to put out the Carb Fire. After that, I kept my Fire Extinguisher, near the Drivers Seat. Where I could get to it from there. Close enough to the Drivers Seat. That, if I were in an Accident and couldn't get out of the Car or Truck. I could still reach it. It's a good idea. To tie it down, or at least, put it under the Seat. So, it doesn't become a Projectile, in an Accident. It can take a while to fumble with keys or find the Open Trunk Lever, on newer cars. To open the Trunk, to get to your Emergency Gear. I keep most of my Gear in the Car or Cab of my Truck. Your mind, doesn't work as fast, as you may think it will, in a real emergency. Also, if your Car is on Fire. The last place you want to be. Is, at the rear of the Vehicle, where the Gas Tank is!:O Also, be prepared for a Break Down. This, can easily become an Emergency Situation. A Few Hand Tools are a must. Even if you are not Mechanically Inclined. Screw Drivers, Pliers and such, can save you, from being Stranded. I have pulled over to help people, at times, over the years. And they often, had no tools. And sometimes, Not even a Jack or Spare Tire. I had both. And Tire Plugs and some Fix a Flat, in a Can too. One of the most important things. I have had to use. To get back on the Road. Is water, for the Radiator (I carry 2 to 4 Gallons). I use old Anti-Freeze Jugs, for my Backup Radiator Water. I carry this, in Addition, to my Emergency Drinking Water. If your Engine over heats and spits out water. You are stuck, on the road. You will ruin your Motor, if you continue to run it or drive the Car. Unless, you have some Radiator Patch Tape or allot of Duct Tape. And Water, to put back in the Radiator. You are Stranded. I actually carry, Spare Parts, too. Old, but still ok... Fan Belts, Hoses Spark Plugs, etc. What ever, commonly wears out on your engine. In Texas, where I live. People die, every Summer, from the Heat. Some, cold days in the Winter, can kill you here too. So, like you. I also keep, a Sleeping Bag or two. And some Pillows, in case I want to go on a Spur of the Moment Camping Trip:) Can't sleep without my pillows;) I keep my Sleeping Bags, in the Back Seat. So, I can get to them easily. And in case I have an Accident and can't get out of the Vehicle. They are there, with me. This could save your life, if you drive off into a Ditch and get injured, in the Winter. Or hit a Sow Bank. And your Car can't be seen, from the road. This has happened, to people here, several times, here over the years. Keeping your Sleeping Bags or Blankets inside the Car. Keeps them Cleaner and Dryer. Than if you had to go out and get them out of the trunk, on a Rainy Night. Trunks, often Leak in Water too. For me, I have had times. Where, I got sick, while on the Road. And had to crawl in the Back Seat and sleep for a while. It was in Hot weather. So, the Pillows, at least, made me a bit more comfortable. Some other things, that I carry. Are Canned and Dry Food, Crackers, Cookies etc. That can stand up to the heat and cold, in the Car. Since 1992, my main Vehicle, has been a 1976 Chevy Blazer 4x4 Truck. It has large windows, all around it. So, the Sun, does burn up everything it shines on. I keep my food and eating utensils, in a small Lunch Cooler. This does help, quite a bit, in preserving your food. I have had some things stay in there for 10 years!:O And some canned food, in there for about 3 years. I know... I forgot:O The Sun, has finally disintegrated, the Cooler. After many years. So, I need a new one. Like you. I also keep a Backpack, ready to go. One, in the House with me and another, in the Truck. With some basic stuff, in them. Clothes and overnight stuff. Rope, String, Flash Light and Spare Batteries. Swiss Army Knife, Sizzlers, Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Plastic Bags and First Aid Stuff. I keep my Pocket Knives, in my Pockets, at all times. My Hunting knives, stay in the House. They are keepsakes, from my Dad and Childhood. And for me, I keep Medicine. I am Diabetic. So, I need to keep some spare Meds, with me at all times. I keep some Meds, in a Pocket Pill Box too. Along with, some Glucose Tablets. Both, in my Pocket and my Back Pack. Anyone, could use the Glucose Tablets. They are much like a Candy, we have here, Called, Sweet Tarts. There good:) When I was younger. I lived on 1.5 Acres, in the Country. There was a Spring Fed Creek, on the Back and it was heavily Wooded. I lived, there for 9 years and love it. For a while, I camped in my back yard, every weekend, with my kids. It was the best camping spot, I ever had!:) I wish I still had the place... I would like to have even more Emergency Gear, with a Roll out Bag, like yours. And some of those, products you show, look great. I really like that Big Bow Saw, in your Trunk. And the Camping Gear too. Thanks for sharing, your knowledge with us:)

Energia is the TI Texas Instruments version of the Arduino App


Today, (08-16-17) I noticed. That, on my Fedora 23 Lenovo i5 System. I have a Desktop icon. Pointing to, "/home/don/Downloads/TI - Texas Instruments Software and Design Files Gerber etc/energia-1.6.10E18/energia". But, that folder has been deleted. I do have it on my Senate USB Backup Drive. I can run, the energia file and it will run in portable mode. It also has an install.sh file too. I decided to copy the energia-1.6.10E18 to my /home/don/ folder and run it from there. I also noticed. There is an .energia15 folder and an Energia Folder in /home/don/ as well. I found it by searching for energia, in my Applications, with XFCE App Finder. But, it is named Arduino and has it's icon. Now, I remember... That, Energia, is the TI - Texas Instruments version of the Arduino App...

See the Screen Shots...
