My husband and I have a little garden in the yard that seems to gets bigger every year. We now know how to compost, grow herbs and veggies but, would that be enough? I'd have access have to all the books in the library. I love to read and well where else are we going to get any knowledge once we feel the loss of the almighty Google of knowledge. Fire is a must. Matches we must have all the matches. What would you need to survive any type of real long term emergency. I decided to compile a list for all of us who weren't boy or girl scouts and don't have a degree in survival skills. Top Ten Lists are always popular, my favorite number is thirteen so get your back pack and here we go:
1.Non Perishable Food
2.A radio with extra batteries or better yet one of those wind up or solar radios
3.Propane, Matches, Firewood
4.First Aid Kit
5.Flash Light with extra batteries
6.Heavy Duty Tarp to catch rain water insulates room for warmth
8.Hiking boots and spare socks w/ 3 days worth change of clothes
12.Personal Hygiene Items
13.Bottled Water or Gallons of water
From Georgia's unpredictable tornado season to the zombie apocalypse or whatever is next, it never hurts to have a plan. I don't know about you but, what I'm not ready for is the six months of waiting to find out what beloved cast member they took from us this time.
