    April shout-out: What would you save if your house was on fire?
    This is a hard question, but probably the first thing I'd grab would be my camera bag.

    My cam's the most expensive thing I own, my lenses are all in the bag too, I could make money with them after the disaster maybe, plus I'd get cool shots of the house burning!

    with sixty seconds' worth of distance run.

    1) My a$$ (i.e, me)
    2) My cat

    The rest of it can burn to hell and get replaced on insurance.

    I'd use backblaze for backing up your digital stuffs. (I've used a few online backup services, and i've found this one the best)

    Some of my elaborate art work that can not be replaced. Computers are all backed up, no need to worry there. My husband would help carry the artwork.

    I would not run back into the fire though.

    I was in a fire once aged 7, horrific, spent a long time in Hospital, material things do not count really, they can be replaced.

    My computer and most critical gear is at my boyfriend’s (which is a greater fire hazard than my place, actually), so the only thing left to take would be my Leica kit. And the 8x10 of my grandfather in 1940. If I even knew where that was.

    I would save my numerous boxes of slides from photo school... Then if I had a free hand, I'd grab my irreplaceable copy of "The Garbage Pail Kids Movie" lol

    Well there you have one of the few things that is truly hard to replace. Artwork can be one of a kind.

    So many other things are easy to replace. Laptops, cameras, phones, who cares? You can go today and buy replacements.
    Even money is easily replaced. Well, not easy but certainly it's always possible to make more.

    Yes, that is true. Usual things like equipment and furnishings and such are easily replaced. But I would not have enough time in my life to repeat this work, and not that I really could now. Each piece is unique and was created at a certain stage in my life.

    I have stored many of those works away some other place just in case of a disaster like a fire or hurricane, but I want to live with some of what I have created, so I take the risk. Too much precaution in life can prevent you from living

    We're in a bushfire prone area -- so I'm under more threat than my entire property would burn down as well as my house. We've got 2 people (me included), 2 horses, 2 dogs that would get the priority -- then my wallet, keys, phone and laptop.

    I can't say I'd know where to begin. Assuming family was safe, photo albums if possible and my laptop as my backups are currently in bad shape. There are things that I truly can't live for more than a few hours without. However, a hospital is nearby and phone numbers to the company that supplies these things are, relatively, safe in my head.

    Including your clothes and furniture? You must be right out of that 80's cult movie, the Lawnmower man

    She got legs ... granted the cat does too but I don' expect a cat to know what to do in the case of a housefire.

    Definitely:

    The quilt my great aunt made me (she's gone, irreplaceable), my laptop (it's my lifeline, and used for work and personal stuff), my phone (extremely useful, but much more easily replaced), and maybe my backup drive (for the stuff I no longer keep on the laptop, but would love to keep).

    I can't think of anything else that I'd immediately reach for. Other than my dog, but the original post said we're assuming everything living makes it out fine.

    Good question!

    I have a couple of works done by a local artist that I love, and couldn't ever be exactly replaced - I'd definitely take those. Next would be photos and my antique Hans Christian Andersen from the 1850s.

    Also I'd have to take carry cages so that my cats couldn't run off once we're all outside!

    The firstthing that came to mind was my PC... but after thinking about it for a second, I would let even that burn! I really need to go out to shop for a new PC!

    How ironic... if I had such a collection that's precisely what I would be burning
