|There's a lot of space back there for a business and a lifestyle|
This system works for my work. It also gives me a lot of hidden space in the trunk for other things. There is a space behind the baskets filled with controlled chaos and the back of the back seats. There in the dark rests the bug out bag. In an emergency I can pack a basket of urgent need items in a basket in the house, go to the car and toss the housekeeping business! If it were a dire emergency, I could pull a basket, grab the bag and go leaving the car behind.
I also have access to the bag from the inside of the car by twisting around, pressing a button, letting down the back seat and grab the bag and go. It is important to me that I have access to the bag from inside the car. I drive with my eyes open and there are some neighborhoods that whisper, stay in the car.

I have a beautiful, funny, smart sister. She will never get it together in an emergency. Her desk is perfectly organized at work. People depend on her organizational skills. But, one time, she opened her trunk to give me something and I thought, yeah, we will need to provide for her. That trunk was a coffin for work files, several document boxes for her not for profit organization and some left overs from a beach trip. She noticed my eyes were lingering and she said What? I just asked, soooo where is your auto emergency kit? It was in her garage. Garage! So, this is how I know she has no BOB, no plan and she will need more than a little help. She may be the last person in the family to get on board and prepare for an emergency. Still, I believe we will keep her. She has military training and she can take orders.
When I ask you where your bug out bag is, I don't really want you to tell me, I am not your mom. I want you to think. Are you preparing for emergencies? Where is your stuff? Can you get your hands on it? Can it be seen by strangers? Are you ready?
