Another use for a 'Go Bag'....

As full-timers we naturally carried everything with us. We packed a backpack and kept it by the front door - easy to grab. It included our computer backups, financial info, a copy of our trust info, power of attorney, Do Not Resuscitate form, medical info, important ph. #'s, about $200 in cash, checkbook, etc.

Do you realize how fast a RV can go up in flames? There's no time to gather things. A friend had a fireproof safe and after their fire they opened it and everything was ashes. At night we'd move the bag to the bedroom in case we had to make a quick exit through the window. When we had to leave the RV at a service facility for an oil change, etc., we took the bag with us. When leaving for the exploring or shopping we took the bag to the car.

When you're in an emergency situation having all the information you may need right there saves some frantic phone calls, etc. Many full-timers do this.

As to needed short-term prescriptions... your pharmacy/doctor can authorize an emergency refill.
