With all the stuff happening around the country with different disaster's, I would think that it's a no-brainer to be prepared. Everyone talks about a 72 hour kit for the car or in the garage but what about our vans (Trailer). I always make sure that my waste tanks are empty, water tank is full and propane is topped off. I have food in the van as well as medical, clothes etc. just in case. Extra cords for the gen-set if I need to run power to the house, batteries charged and a charger to plug in to the gen-set if they might need recharging for one reason or another. Books to read and dvd's to watch if we want. What about the kids and grandkids if they are in the picture, do you have just enough for you or do you have extra to share for someone in need. And yes, I also have a couple of self defense and hunting arms if I need to go that way as well. Anyway, enough of that and just as the topic says, food for thought and Sooner rather than later I wish we had more food recipes posted from the group or let me know what you like and I can try to come up with something.

I made a banana cake in the B190's oven for a WDCU rally once. Erica has made macaroni and cheese on a couple occasions in the oven. We rarely use the microwave - I used it when I was living out of the camper for a week or two, but we could count the number of times we've used it otherwise on one hand.
The new camper doesn't have an oven, so we bought a toaster oven to use in it. This requires electricity, however. Since the trailer doesn't have a generator, we're hoping to pick up two of those Honda eu2000i (or equivalent) generators to produce 30 amp power.
