Why not pile up some cash instead of being leveraged? I dunno if in an emergency taking on MORE debt is such a good idea. I definitely don't like borrowing my way out of anything, because it usually doesn't work.

I put a $1,000 a month draw on my primary checking account for a year and stockpiled bonus money and other income into a money market fund. Took about a year, but now I have 20K as a cash reserve.
