Hurricane season for the folks in the south also is the time for those in the North realize winter is coming. Sometimes things happen that catch us unprepared, so it's good to be the habit of having some things ready all the time. One is to always carry water in your vehicle and to rotate it often; for me it's as simple as grabbing a fresh bottle of water as I leave to go somewhere and to drink one of the ones already in my vehicle. Another one is to get into the habit of recharging your batteries on some form of a schedule. A ham friend once said "Every ham should have a radio that runs off of 12v", I tend to agree. I also carry a full change of clothes (in Ziploc bags)in my vehicle, If something happen and where I get wet or dirty it sure is nice to have clean dry clothes to change into. On that point I also carry a Towel (HGTTG readers know of this useful tool). These are just a few little things I'm listing in hopes others will join in to inspire a little thought on this subject.
