If a catastrophe struck and you had to leave your home in a hurry (and never return), what items would you grab in your last ten minutes, and why?
canon 40D (in it's case with lenses, charger and everything needed) to possibly win a pulitzer for pictures taken of such catastrophe
manfroto tripod, sitting in it's case right next to my 40d
lap top + charger
Kerouac collection (on my desk)
good sneakers + socks
if essentials come into play, the list would be much longer...
