Okay, so let’s be clear…I am not an extremist when it comes to survival…I need to preface this post with that as it is very easy to be associated with folks who are out here building bunkers preparing for world’s end as if they could survive it anyway…however, I am a realist and believe in being trained to GO…I see things for what they are and the world for what it is…the need to be able to survive out here in the world is necessary. My family were mountain folks and my grandfather still is…running a little farm with a garden that produces an abundance of produce year round. With the current state of our world I feel that its important we all abide what I call “common sense rules”…First of all..having a water supply and plenty of can goods never hurt anyone. You never know when a bad storm is going to come through or someone tries to take over the world and create a real life Hunger Games! LOL…its just good to have resources available at your finger tips.
Secondly, keeping a certain amount of cash at home — now you should do this for NUMEROUS reasons and if you can’t think of least one, there is no need of explaining it to you further. This is just good old fashion COMMON SENSE! Third, be able to protect yourself and your family. Ensure you have a way to start a fire if necessary, have good knife on hand, a flashlight and plenty of batteries. You make the choice on what that means. Fourth, everyone in the house needs a great pair of tennis shoes, PLENTY of socks and a great winter coat, hat and scarf. Finally, create an action plan for your family…in the event of an emergency situation have a safe place everyone can meet and a code word that everyone recognizes that signals the plan.
I know this sounds a little crazy but in a real life situation some of these items could save your life. Being prepared is never NOT a good idea…now this doesn’t mean go out and get ridiculous. If a natural disaster is going to occur there is nothing anyone can do about it, but being prepared will help. Okay, enough of that…I just felt like sharing that…the state our world is in you just never know what the hell to expect these days!!
Until next time!
