Evacuate in Style with the New Orleans Craft Mafia

There are few things more trying than evacuating for a hurricane. First you must figure out which way the storm will go so you can then figure out how to go in the opposite direction. You must leave early to avoid insane traffic. And you have to figure out what you will bring with you besides your sweetie and your pets. Let the mafia help you pack and show your handmade NOLA pride while standing in the FEMA line:

This blue tarp messenger bag has plenty of room for you to tuck in that contraflow map -and- the bottle of Chevis.

It also helps to look hot while you are, well hot driving up the crowded 1-55 and keeping the A/C off to conserve fuel.
