DPT--10 Things to Have in Your Escape Kit

Sometimes a person just needs to escape. Whether from a psychotic ex, a psychotic boss or a middling life of boredom, you should always have your "Escape Kit" at hand. Here's a short list of what you should have:
  1. Your BOB. You can always buy specific items that you need when you get to where you are going.
  2. Cash. Lots of cash.
  3. Your documents (ie: passport, vaccination card, etc).
  4. Food and water--it may be a while before you get to your destination.
  5. A plausible excuse for leaving if needed (depending on how many bridges you want to burn).
  6. A portable source of income if you will be gone for an extended length of time.
  7. A plan (pre-planned not an after thought). How will you get to the airport? What will you do with your home? Do you need a house sitter? Will you cancel unneeded home services? Do you have a destination in mind? Who do you tell where you are going and who don't you tell?
  8. A way to evaluate why it is you had to escape and a way to deal with the issues that drove you to this decision.
  9. A spouse, children or friend if applicable and, of course, their BOBs and documents.
  10. A re-entry plan.

  1. In my opinion when preparing escape kit is something that might handy for emergency situation, especially when your are disabled.

    Unlike in the past, today people with disabilities have been recognized, and are less discriminated against. In many countries there are legislations that protect them and make their life a little easier. Also many public buildings have been designed or renovated in order to accommodate people with disabilities.
