I thought this was as good as time as any to discuss some of our preparations around our Lil’ Suburban Homestead for the future and what our goals are this summer. Until recently we had a very clear plan of our bug out site, what we would take with us etc…however we are making changes to some of our plans nothing major but we are looking for lighter backpacks, better footwear, and just making sure we are more prepared. We do not have plans to hunker down in one place as much as people say to me all the time that they will come stay with us in the event of a catastrophe after watching The Walking Dead and Revolution ( I know they are just television shows) But it points out clearly that being on the move is the wise thing to do and most likely will be a big part of our plan.
Another item we are discussing is just what is going to go in our back packs and how much food we will need to serve us well whether it is a long-term emergency or a short-term emergency. Another reason I am very glad that I have made changes to my eating the last couple of years and this year even eating less is that my body will have the ability to survive on less. I have ramped up my gym work outs to include more Peak Fitness time so that I can see how my body reacts to periods of being out of breath.
Prepping is mental too as my car air conditioner is broken and even though I have an option to take another car to work but I have decided to stick it out and let my body get used to the heat. I find I quickly get edgy and irritable and this is not a bad thing?
Are you addressing your own preparations for the future? Have you thought about some of these things?
Oh and before I forget I wanted to announce the winner of the wonderful children’s book that I had the privilege of doing a book review for and my nieces loved this book and gave it a resounding thumbs up!
