Hi guys,

been talking with some of my family members and friends in the san diego area after this last week's fires.

it was a great reminder to me of what "real" bugging out looks like, vs. the fantasy version that a lot of us like to imagine and prep for.

Coming to you from the hospital! Just a little moment out of my Super Bowl to give a quick plug for insurance!!

My daughter will be ok, but without insurance, this one would've been EXPENSIVE. 
On this Super Bowl Sunday, I'm coming to you from the hospital, reminding you about the prep of insurance.
