    missed a trick...

    Get the wife, girlfriend, hooker or mother
    to carry the amps and more guitars to safety along with your dog(s).

    Don't care what/who she is - seems pointless to waste her by leaving her behind...

    Having experienced as a kid a flood that killed 230+ in my hometown - that gave me respect for not just high ground but MOTHERFUCKING HIGH GROUND! Them there creeks and coast line sure look purdy but can come an git you too.

    In the pic above I'd be hollerin 'Get your arms full of gear woman and git your butt in the water!!!!' I'd pay for that I know but come on we're talking gear!

    When you buy gear from Thomann, they put in a sticker that say: In case of fire, rescue my guitars!

    I have one of those at my front door and people comment on it all the time .

    WHOA! I've had nightmares about something like that happening! :run:

    I live a little over a mile from the Yellowstone river, but fortunately I'm on high ground..And I DO have a 14 ft. Odyssey Raft as well as a 17 ft. canoe out back, just in case..That should hold at least some of my gear :fingersx:

    The little lady would be first in the raft, of course..That way I'll have someone to whom I can hand my guitars and amps..:naughty:

    I live on high ground so no worries about flooding. But fire is my nightmare. I have 2 guitars that I made myself and can never replace. My 'Wattage shrine' is in the attic so I would have to dash upstairs, grab the guitars, out the skylight and across the roof to next-door, hoping the GF has made her own plans!

    He did the same for Frodo in The Lord of the Rings!
