Well said. When I am running on generator and several hours pass, my thoughts turn to how far is it to fuel. I burn about 5 gal/24 hrs. A number experience provided me with. Several weeks ago much of Dallas lost power. Many folks went 4 days without power. Many had to fuel away from their normal stations. Our vehicles are never put away without 1/2 tanks. That has been my rule for years. Our saying is “Make the gate”. Meaning the base, the farthest distance we ever travel in the local mega mess.
