Apocalypse Preparedness! (Survival Series Part I, Intro)

Alright, admittedly  there is no foreboding apocalypse around the corner, but my new favorite TV show (The Walking Dead) has gotten H & I thinking about the worst case scenario.   (Yes, we are late to this game ... Netflix is something we use & don't usually watch shows during the current season)
I love the photos I find on Microsoft's Copyright Free image search - don't you? 

We have the basic supplies necessary to survive a short time, but in a long term or worst-case scenario, we would be in a lot of trouble!

As most of you know, we are on a budget, so this Survival series isn't going to be an expensive tour through how to prepare yourselves.  This series will be a simple tour through what we are doing ($20 at a time!) to prepare ourselves for the worst case scenario.

I will walk you through:

  • The tools that we already have at our disposal: including basic camping/winter gear, and hunting basics.   
  • Several $20 trips to stock up on things that we hope we'll never need.  
  • Some of the bigger ticket (expensive) items that we will be purchasing slowly over time.  
  • Last, but not least, I will show you the best plans we have for both:
    •  "bugging in" (more likely since we are in rural Montana)  or 
    • "bugging out" (which may be more useful in an urban environment).

I look forward to sharing our successes with you over the next few months as we get ready for a worst-case scenario - ** I hope we never have to use these skills/supplies**

Everything In Place Please
