QuoteMy cousin left Sugar Land, drove 12 hours getting less than 20 miles. She realized she was about out of gas, so she returned home. Some people told me it took them 18 hours to get here; I can make the trip normally in under 2 hours.
Quote... I think the thing that most seperates a refugee from a survivor is mindset and preparation. A refugee is willing to let others (GOV or "help" agencies) take control of their destiny, where as a survivor tends to want to handle those thing themselves.

I recommend this only for a very short term stay. It boggles my mind how many people don't know how to be gracious guests, much less how to actively contribute to a household. Learning how to actively contribute to any household you are in is priceless in good times, and can be the difference between having shelter or not having shelter in bad times.If you proactively do every chore possible in the home of a family member or friend you are staying with, it will smooth over a lot of potential tension and drama. Contribute even moderately when just visiting in good times, and you'll develop a reputation that will have your friends wanting to keep you when bad times come.I used to travel a lot in a previous life. At one point, there were few major cities in the US and Western Europe I couldn't easily find a couch to crash on for a few days, cause I was famous in that community for cleaning my hosts kitchens. My gear was ALWAYS stowed away first thing in the morning and my hosts never had a dirty dish in their sink.
