+TotemLake Posted December 20, 2006 Share Posted December 20, 2006 (edited) I plan for abandoning the car in an urban setting most of the time Me too. Cell phone and credit card As recently experienced in the great blackout of 2006, that doesn't work well in large blanketed black out areas. Cell phones barely made the grade unless you were close enough to a working tower and no guarantee of getting on them then with the saturation levels. Credit cards were worth their weight in value in stores that had no power. I suppose I could have grabbed a hat and flipped them into it from 10 feet away. I thought we were talking about abandoning the car in a city All of King County and more was blacked out. That includes many cities and towns including Seattle and Bellevue to just name a couple familiar towns. Edited December 20, 2006 by TotemLake Quote Link to comment
