WPA Emergency Escape Preparation List
WPA Emergency Escape Preparation Checklist
(Updated April 9, 2002)

With the recent increase in words, prophecies, visions and dreams that contain warnings, it is obvious that it is wise to be prepared for any eventuality. As I was thinking about this today, the Holy Spirit prompted me to share with you how I have prepared in the natural.

My "Hiking and Retreat Checklist" has on it those things that I keep in my Camptrails "Wilderness" large, frame backpack in my room at home. This has been refined by much experience on the Florida trails. There are "frills" on the checklist, that are obvious, that I don't have packed and at the ready all the time. Obviously, most of the items are packed in small quantity and in the smallest containers.

My backpack is fully packed and ready to go at any moment if the Lord speaks and tells me to go anywhere else with my family for any reason. If I have to leave, I will take this pack on my back, and I'll carry my Beeman Air Rifle over my shoulder. I also have a Redhead belt pack, in which I carry my pellet ammo. I'll carry a big family tent in one hand. This will leave me with one hand free. I might carry different things, depending on whether I'm going to a hurricane shelter locally, or to someone else's house to ride out a storm, or to the Mountains to evade flood or tidal wave, or to the trail to evade people.

What I present below is what I have ready to run out of here with if I am in a big hurry, even if I have no car available. I have planned this way because in a nuclear pulse attack, our cars would be rendered undrivable. If my cars are functioning, I will of course load both of them with as much as I can take from the rest of my stores, which include propane tanks, gas stoves, lanterns and of course, food, as I have indicated at the bottom of the list.

I have prayed about what should be on my list and what should not. I have changed it many times, and devoted much thought to what types of conditions I might encounter in the types of situations I have seen in visions and dreams.

In short, I want to be as prepared to survive as I can possibly be, SO THAT I CAN PREACH THE GOSPEL. I want to be able to lead and to assist others. I have tried to plan and think ahead prayerfully, knowing that without the Lord's help, all preparation is fruitless and vain. Without vision, the people perish.
