TFB, good to see you back around!

I have one item that I almost never see listed as something to have on file and/or secured via USB- ALL firearms makes, models, and ESPECIALLY serial numbers!

Just remember to never laminate your social security card as it will become void if you do so and you'll have to get another.
So, I guess you're doing that thing they said you were in the other thread, huh? Good luck to you, sir.
Ok? What the hell are you on about?

DTOM - Sup buddy? I never thought of that. You could create a simple spreadsheet to keep track by make, model and SN like you said. That's a good idea. I have so few I could probably put them on an index card, laminate it and put it in my wallet lol.

A note about those Sentry Lock Boxes - Don't place them where they have a chance of falling. I carelessly kicked mine off the end of my bed Freshman year, it fell, hit something, and knocked the locking mechanism right off.

My reason for keeping these documents is for limited scale problems (like Katrina).
Something like KATRINA is the SHTF, if you can not prove your id, you might have a problem,
as you say, you are British by Birth but American by choice, then you want to really make sure you
have your ducks in a row. I keep Certified copies of all my paperwork in a folder, Passport and
paperwork ready to go, kept in a fire proof box.

Nous souvinais l'Acadie, yeah, remember, The Acadiens, The Cherokees and the Choctaws have their own trail of tears, we will remember. Be ready to pack it up and move quickly, its our national heritage!!!!

Excellent post! This is especially important when travelling abroad as well. It is amazing how many Americans abroad show up to the American Citizens Services (ACS) section at the Embassy minus their passport due to loss or theft and having no backup documents to prove identity.

I keep everything on a usb drive around my neck on a chain in a water proof holder.
I got it from a friend who is a LA City Fireman.
I have all our Lic. Ins. Papers, Deeds, SS Cards, Pictures of inside and out side
the house, of our cars and of course RECENT Pictures of my family and dog
incase one goes missing.
I almost forgot. It is password protected....
