As Hurricane Irene nears my apartment in New York, I'm once again longing to be back home in temperate Oregon, where the only natural disasters we fear are the rare earthquakes and volcanos.
That said, we've always believed here at Archival that the apocalypse is an excellent opportunity to hone your packing skills. The contents of my Bug-Out Bag is one of my favorite subjects to ponder during a sleepless night, far better than counting sheep. Even Mayor Bloomberg is talking about them!
