Preparedness is Common Sense
Laura King published an article earlier today about her experiences in a recent course that is supposed to train the participants on how to survive in the aftermath of a disaster. They covered topics such as bug out bags, supplies and security. The class sounds like it would be a fun, except for the caffeine deprivation, and the author seems to have gotten a lot out of the experience. The quote from her article that stuck with me today was “If the lifestyle is anything like the course, however, prepping is mostly common sense.” That is certainly the truth of it. Even for those of us who don’t feel the need for a bunker in the backyard, keeping extra supplies on hand for rainy days is just common sense when disasters happen in our country every year. If something bad happened in your neighborhood, how long could your family live off of the food in your house before you had to take a trip to the grocery store? You don’t even have to sign up for a class to check your pantry and freezer and get started getting ready.
