Spares | Twisp, WA | November 2019

Comfort comes in many forms. But life’s pressures ease when we’re prepared for the unexpected. A flashlight within easy reach. A spare tire fully inflated. An extra six-pack on game day. I like to draw a mental map (not paper) of household emergency items and their locations. The map also includes escape routes in case of fires, earthquakes, robbers, or infestations of vampires or zombies. Knowing what to grab and where to run is the best plan for survival. (Toilet paper? Not a primary defense in a zombie attack.)
