Evacuation Plan

I was just reading about the wildfire that overtook Fort McMurray in Canada. Our hearts go out to all those affected by this devastation. I cannot, and hope to never, fathom such an ordeal.

But it makes me think. If we were to evacuate, how could we? I've been tossing around the idea of selling the 6-horse trailer and use something a little bit more practical. There's only me and I'm usually only hauling one or two horses so there's no need for a 6-horse. But then I think about an evacuation. The 6-horse would move a lot of the Sanctuary pretty quick. It may hold 6 but I can always toss the ponies in somewhere so it would turn into 8 and then we have our trusty stock trailer that holds 4. If you count the ponies, that leaves only 4 left behind. We have another stock trailer so that would alleviate that issue (if we were to keep that trailer and that's not the plan). But I've been trying to figure out an emergency plan if we were to need one. There's phone numbers and people to call in an emergency but we like to be self sufficient (and I know we can't if we want to continue to grow).

So, do you have an emergency evacuation plan?
