      The presentation is about an hour and 40 minutes including a 10 minute break. That is without questions/discussion. Probably another 30-45 minutes

    For the discussion if you want to bring a laptop that can play PowerPoint, I will be handing out a disc with the presentation on it.
    Sometimes the projector at Gander Mountain is less than ideal. Also, anyone wanting to bring a Get-home-bag to show and tell, that would be great. See you there.

    I have been thinking about evacuation, the need to prepare, to have a plan, and to make un-pressured decisions in advance on whether to evacuate or to bug-in. The moment of crisis is a terrible time to start thinking about it.
