A Zombie Apocalypse?
(Hehe! Sorry to all my prepper cohorts! I couldn't resist!)
Thought I'd throw a little fun yall's way! Saw this and you guys immediately came to mind.
And here's one in special honor of HermitJim!
On a serious note-- I'm headed to them thar hills!!!
O.k., so I won't go until March, and it'll only be for three days... I need to do a test run to my property. Get the lay of the land (well, find the place, first!), scope out the nearest neighbors, and just generally breathe the fresh air for a long weekend.
I don't have any edifice at all on the place, as I just bought it. No electricity. No running water...
A TEST RUN. Find out how ready I really am, what I'd be lacking for immediate survival if TSHTF and I had to bug out. Sure, kind of unfair-- I know the trip is coming so can prepare, but...
Don't we ALL? AIN'T WE ALL?
A few days camping in the Ozarks, in March (when it is likely to still be a bit nippy [read: downright frigid to this warm-natured Texas boy] will be a real-live wake-up call. Damn straight I'm gonna be extra-diligent in preparing for the venture; even a weekend hiking, or a day fishing, or an hour frolicking through the local strip mall can fast become a life-or-death scenario. I'll take everything I can think of that I'll need.
But ain't there always something we forgot, or left behind, or will 'discover' we need(ed)?
Better on a 'practice' trip than the real deal... It'll allow me to become even more vigilant.
Name of the ... well, it ain't a "game", now is it?
All that, and I get to skip work for a few days and bask in the Magic of the Hills! HAR!
I'll take plenty of photos!
And of course I'll keep prepping in the interim, in case the new Hat(field)s in the Oval Orifice bring the real McCoy on before then...
More soon, folks.
