Just in case you have to jump out of a plane near Billings.
The same motto that would later become a song to a beloved Disney movie.
We here in MT would welcome Calvin. At least for a few minutes.
I need that kit.
I’m sure those kits would sell like hotcakes. Especially in Montana.
Mary Poppins, you’re not
If he has a wrench and that other stuff, they won’t let him near the water fountain.
Calvin invented the Everyday Carry.
An umbrella would more be a rocket for you, Calvin. Especially on windy days.
Yeah, show us how that works!!!
Ready to go!
The umbrella will not be good very much as parachute!
The umbrella doubles as a parachute for you maybe…
Dang!!! I have to upgrade my backpack!
I have a really big 32 rib golf umbrella, you need to hang on to something in gusts.
So—he’s prepared in case he’s attacked by bugs from Montana!!
He can “wrench” their heads off while reading his comics to them sitting on the rock!!
I often wondered what little guys thought essential for their daypacks.
Q would be proud, or even better, Data from the Goonies…….
He must have really did it this time!
I hope he’s insured by Traveler’s.
The let Calvin into the Boy Scouts?
An umbrella is good as a parachute, if you’re as light as a stuffed toy. /looks about/ Hmmm… If you see any, use them for testing my theory.
Somehow, I still don’t think that Calvin and the Boy Scouts are a fit for each other.
Most kids wouldn’t think of half the “stuff” to be prepared! Calvin gets his organizational motto from some place……Boy Scouts, perhaps?
This must be what my husband was like as a child.
That is called a “go bag”. Not exactly what I’ve got in mine, but to each his own.
So today, Calvin would be one of those preppers that everyone talks about?
Better to have and not need……….
Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Lesson best learned while young.
I do envy Calvin’s imagination ! ! ! 1
A good solid umbrella can also double as a cane.
Just what every survivalist needs. A map of Montana. Oddly enough, Montanans don’t like survivalists.
Well Calvin, you would make a wonderful Girl Scout. Remember their motto is “Be Prepared.”
These days, Calvin has an underground bunker with 25 year’s worth of freeze dried foot, a safe full of guns, and tons of ammunition.
Forgot the Swiss Army knife.
“Look at (his) sweater vest, it looks so fly!”- Milo Murphy’s Law
That map of Montana will come in real handy in Michigan.
Calvin, if you even think of coming to New Jersey, you will find traffic cones in your driveway.
Semper Fi, Calvin !
And a dime to make an emergency call on a public pay phone. (Later a quarter)
a rock? Was he trick-or-treating with Charlie Brown?
Don’t panic, but where is your towel?
I was going to mention emergency rations, but maybe the book on bugs will tell him which ones are safe to eat.
Honestly, I was heavily influenced by Felix the Cat as a child. I don’t go anywhere without a fanny pack containing many small, but potential useful items. It’s tricky to be all-inclusive. I once found myself with three kinds of pens and nothing to write on. :)
You should see the trunk of my car…
And that’s just for history class.
He’s got it covered…..
I used to carry tool bags when I traveled and did telecom work. I had specific tools in each bag. When I needed a particular tool, I knew which bag to open. Being prepared is always a good thing. I have to commend Calvin in this.
i packed (to run away from home when about 5) similar items, mostly underwear as I recall
Needs a roll of duct tape and a can of WD-40 and he’d be set for any contingency
Don’t pack a map of Alaska. That place is so big, when you get there, the map will be useless
He’s not prepared.
The umbella, a black outfit with balaclava, and a backpack to carry it all in will be de rigueur for your ‘mostly-peaceful’ protests.
Nowadays, a Smartphone would be essential for such a kit!
Swiss Army backpack
I’m trying to imagine an adventure where that’s exactly what he would need. I hope Watterson intends to oblige us.
Montana is halfway to the Yukon, just in case.
To paraphrase a certain credit card ad, “What’s in your bug out bag?”
Never thought of Calvin as a Vietnam vet… till now.
MacGyver as a kid?
I present to you, Calvin, the New Age Mary Poppins. ;-p
I once attended a preparedness seminar. This doesn’t look much like any emergency kit we were taught about.
But not a GOOD parachute
What?!! No Swiss Army Knife?!!!!
Calvin you are ready to look into the worlds face, alright.
You forgot your towel, Calvin!
