    Hello everyone,

    My mom often said that if she could only save one thing, it would be our family photos — though that's not as relevant today in the age of digital photography. Has your home ever caught fire? If so, you probably went the safe route and saved yourself before your stuff. But if your house were burning and you could only save one thing, what would it be?

    Laptop of course, the rest can be re-bought but this beast contains precious data and was pretty expensive on his own anyway.

    I guess I wood agree with most of you about the laptop BUT My laptop is 15 year old and the only thing on it is Street atlas and a few games. I use it in the Mohome while traveling. Before you think I have money. The mohome is a ford van made into a camper, I guess that what I would got out of a fire. Now that We are retired We are traveling 4 to 5 mo. a year.

    I put a lot of effort in training this one and as a plus, she encourages me to build with cardboard. :mrgreen:

    But of course, the main reason is that she makes a darn good coffee.

    My flash drives. Now, my scenario is that i'm wearing pants with my cell phone and ipod touch in them. As for my papermodels, I would douse them in alcohol/dad's beer so they wont catch fire and help fuel the flames.

    I would catch as much as I can! I think everyone would do that.
    And to my opinion, when my house is on fire, one rule: RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!

    My wife and son, of course! Then the Dog. Then my laptop and iPhone. And Bible. Everything else can be replaced.
