Idea's for a checklist of materials and necessities in case of emergency;
Living in the woods can be a desolate solution, it is always nice to be with other friendly people, and these ideas are "just in case" or just a day in the woods.

Just to be prepared for an emergency, plan for public safety risks such as earthquakes, evacuation, power outages, floods at lower altitudes closer to sea level and
severe storms, even in the possibility of a chaotic situation and panic in the city in an event of evacuation.
As much as you can carry or want to carry, load into a vehicle.

Should Canadians have a right to live off the grid ?
While technology has made the idea of plopping down far from the madding crowd easier than ever, the seemingly unyielding march of red tape has moved in lockstep.
In some jurisdictions, in fact, off the grid living has been made illegal.
“Going off the grid is like insuring yourself against a time the lights may go out,” he told Christian Science Monitor. “In the 1970s you had a lot of old-style hermitlike survivalists.
But these people are different.
This isn’t the Stone Age anymore; you can live a quite comfortable life.”

The Tyee - Living off the Grid
Ten Things Learned Living Off-grid in Canada -
For two years we travelled the country to find off-gridders, and studied their ways of life.
Before then I had heard people claim they were off-grid if they switched their cell phone off for a day or two.
Other people thought anyone who lived in remote places was off-grid.
None of that made any sense.
It was when I first visited British Columbia's Lasqueti Island and later the floating home community of Clayoquot Sound that I got a real taste of the off-grid life: life, that is, in a place disconnected from large natural gas and electricity networks.
