This is always an issue in bushfire season – more than 100 fires are burning in NSW alone at the moment. So what would you take with you if you had to evacuate in the path of a fire? My mother, for instance, needs a truck, which could be loaded speedily, up and down the 60 stairs, as the embers fly in. As for me, I’m a frugal type. Basically what’s in my shorts: a memory stick, wallet, keys and, most importantly, my pocket watch.
