They’re inexpensive, plastic 10 gallon buckets, or bins, from Walmart. I’ve been using them for several years for a variety of purposes. Initially, they saw the most use in packing for camping trips. One with miscellaneous kitchen items, like instant coffee, percolator, paper towels, washcloths, etc.. One with our Mountain House supplies for the trip. One larger one for things like our tent fans, camp axe, batteries, etc. Depending on how they’re packed, they can get heavy. Then again, I only need to carry them between the house and the car, then the car and the campsite. So far, we’ve always camped at a “modern” campground. Hmm, maybe I’ll work up an entry on setting up our camp.
Thought I’d take this opportunity to describe why my trailer is set up the way it is.
Let’s face it, a trailer is a pretty easy thing to steal. Especially if it’s hooked to a vehicle. Ok, sitting on the ground isn’t so difficult either. I’ve towed my share of Uhaul Tow Dollies and Car Carriers, what with moving up and down California and across the country a few times. Those trailers are really easy to acquire! At least with mine, I have the option of locking it to the car.
A recent blog from The Survival Mom about why and where to relocate has prompted me to share my experience and perspective.

In most cases, the question has been to Bug Out or Bug In. This question usually refers to where you are right now. Sometimes, though, the question becomes, “Is where I am right now a good place to do either?” I would venture to say that attempting to Bug In if you live in metropolitan Los Angeles, your odds are probably not good. Let’s face it, there are a LOT of people there! In fact, just have a look at the majority of videos being produced by Mark Dice. Mark has a way of showing the simplicity behind the mentality in the area.
