Without coming off like a schizoid I with no reservations make this post.
I have done certain things in my life that allow me to think outside the box.
I have seen things that no one should have to see.
For these reasons I can not leave my home without knowing that my family is well cared for now and in the future.
With all the “Ebola” talk going around and now a dumbass getting on a plane with it I think now is as good of a time as any to ask are you prepped?
I don’t mean going to extremes with training your 3 year old to shoot a fully auto uzi or whatever but what would you or your family do if you could not go to Walmart tomorrow and get what you need?
What would you do if you were stuck on the boat while the world is falling apart around you?
I have always been “Prepped” to a certain degree. My wife bitches at me for buying rice and beans that “will never get eaten” and canned / powdered milk that “will never get used”.
Too much flower, sugar, and other basic staples when I go shopping.
I don’t have visquene(?) and duct tape (what a dumbass suggestion…anybody remember that one by our fearless leaders?) but I do have lots of candles, oil lamps and oil, blankets, a generator and fuel to last a couple weeks or more if conserved right, bottled, jugged, and well.
I have dry goods to last a few months and canned goods to last a little less longer.
Even though I don’t drink I have bottles of whiskey for “bartering”.
I have basic trauma kits and OTC drugs for home doctoring.
I have an arsonel that I will not go into detail other than to say I do have at least one 5.56 mm and 1 9 mm weapon so that if I do run low on ammo (doubtful) that I can trade National Guardsmen say a bottle of whiskey?; for ammo or MRE’s.
Sounds pretty paranoid right?
If that jet full of people that got exposed to the Ebola nurse starts popping positive left and right watch how quick I go from being paranoid to being “smart”.
One parting thought…
I have the most expensive P coat I know of.
It is worth 7-10 grand depending on the price of gold on any given day.
I have tiny little gold bars sewn into it hear and there…just in case.
Cash will be worth nothing. Barter and gold would be the only thing worth anything.
Getting home from a far away place under Marshal Law is a tough one but it can be done.
But if your family is ready for SHTF then you really have no need to “rush home”.
You got everything you need on that boat to last for quite some time…or at least that is the way I try to keep mine in case of hurricane or …Ebola.
just one man’s paranoid delusions…
