Neither wait until the night before the storm hits. As with Rita I rode from the northeast side of Harris County to Rosenberg the night before she made landfall and I only passed 6 cars the whole trip. I loved it having 59 all to myself.

buy the 275-300 gal water totes on cl for showering water and such, a 50 gal barrel for fuel, ammo for looters, coal for grill food, propane for gas cooked food, enough water to last my family for 1 + yrs, and a generator + ice to keep the food cold etc. i have a full sized dog, two small ones, to many cars, and a big family to evacuate. sitting out a storm and knowing what to be prepared for is probably safer then being stuck on the highway choking on carbons coming from cars.

my garage can prob fit 3-4 more bikes if you guys do decide to leave your bikes and run from a storm we may or may not have this year. flooding is not an issue at my place either since we were built on a high elevation and the retention pond in the back.

Evacuated Rita and Ike...

or rather, used them as an excuse to take a road trip. Took 59 Southwest to Laredo. On a Nighthawk 250. It sucks when the speed limits are 70-75.... and your bike tops out at 65-70. During Rita, traffic was backed up until about Rosenburg, then was still busy, but moving at highway speeds. During Ike, there was hardly anyone on 59. Almost made it one way on one tank of gas too.

i learned from the last evacuation that was not mandatory for houston when everyone tried to leave anyways including myself. This time around I'd wait until it was a ghost town when we were told not to be on the road, then get in my vehicle with four wheels, trailer the bikes and head out of town towards the hill country to camp and party (like last time). this would avoid all the stress of dealing with traffic.

it was a sight to see cars broke down on the sides of the road all the way to san antonio. i know at the time we only made it from the north side to beltway and I 10 taking over ten hours, the second attempt was a breeze. military trucks or national reserve whatever were driving in and we were hauling out getting free tolls along the way

During the hurricane, my friend said they dropped off a case of MREs to his house via Helicopter - I wasn't sure if he was being serious or not.

He lives in a nice subdivision called Mission Sierra, near FM1464 @ Beechnut.
