Definitely a concern is the distance between us. Some are separated by hundreds of miles. This is a good thing really, if you're being evacuated from a metro area, either by public order or self initiative, having five locations within a days walk is nice but they too would be effected by the same situation as you. Where do you go?
Having a MAG member, 100 miles away may be the salvation. Bring your own things offer up your skills and get to know each other before you show up in a person's AO but we can overcome the distance. Thoughts?
