Well, it’s been a while since it happened, but the video of our bike trip around Kagoshima Prefecture is finally finished. It’s kind of a long video, but it was kind of a long trip. Hope you can beer through it all (←not a typo!)
We have returned to Sri Lanka.
Above 40 deg C (104 deg F) all week…probably has been all month.
Chocolate is in the reefer section…now makes sense.
The forecast for a MAJOR seismic event in the Tokyo area is…well, it’s 50 years overdue, so over 100%! I’m saying it’s high. Very high. And also very unpredictable.
Here is our Earthquake Preparedness Kit. Calories & water, power & communication, medical & hygiene for 24 hours until we reach an evacuation shelter. Why 24 hours? Water. We can’t carry enough water for 48 or 72 hours. Different solutions like water filters would be needed. We have those too, but if we can’t get assistance in three days, we’ve probably got bigger problems. The best solution for us is to GET TO HELP WITHIN 24 HOURS.
Many of the items have multiple uses:
Nail clipper: wire clip, zip tie cutter, tweezers
Food bag: zip lock bag, water bag, trash bag, toilet
Work gloves: warm gloves
Towel: scarf, splint, head cover, pillow
Hand sanitizer: fire starter
All paper (notes, packaging, etc): kindling
What’s in your kit? Any suggestions for ours? Have we forgotten anything?
Travelling through Bangkok again. Left the airport this time.
Only a couple hours to walk around, but definitely need to come back.
