I went with 2 clear storage containers that are a good size for them but still small to bring. I bought Carefresh to fill them up with and then when we get to our destination, I will build them C&C's with shower curtains ;-) Thanks for that tip!
Rshevin- Don't worry! Kayne our lab will be riding in her cage in the bed of the truck and Tanner will be in his cage in the truck and I will have the Guineas "carriers" right next to me! I won't let anything happen to my babies.
LEB- Sorry! Guinea Pigs are more my thing and dogs are more my husband Jon's thing. We have a beautiful 4 month old HUGE yellow lab named Kayne who is so smart. Then, we have a 4 year old Jack Russell Terrier named Tanner who is a little stinker butt! :)
We are going to go ahead and leave in a little bit since Gustav is projected to hit us. Sad part is it's already a category 3 and thats what Rita was when it hit us and destroyed A LOT. Hopefully it calms down and stops brewing. I have the pigs just about ready and we have a tad bit left to do and we will be heading out the door to Jons brothers deer lease. It is about an hour outside of San Antonio. It is a house so I'm thankful for that. When Rita hit, we weren't able to come back for 3 weeks so hopefully it is not that long :'(
Keep us in your prayers and thoughts.

I picked up a folder from the Red Cross last year at some health fair. It's supposed to be your household checklist and survival kit planning tool. Haven't opened the folder since I brought it home. I really should do that soon.
Stay safe, LAndrews! Check in and let us know how you're doing when you get a chance.

I had an "earthquake kit" in my car when I lived in California. (actually, I believe the blankets and water are still in the my car)
I think the only bad weather we have here in IL is tornados. You really can't plan for those. I seem to always be at work when the sirens go off. There is nothing I can do about the piggies when I am at work and they are at home. Except pray. Although, I do have some large containers which I can scoop the piggies up and evacuate to the basement if need be.
