Spread the word (carefully)

Now is a great time to spread the word about the importance of preparing. I don’t know if you read Preparing to Turn Away, but it’s a piece in which I discussed how hard it will be in a post collapse world to turn away family and friends simply because you don’t have enough to […]

Activities and Fun

Scared children make a stressful situation exponentially worse. If you have children, you need to plan for their sanity as well as your own.
