For the last several days my mind has been on prepping like crazy. With the economy in the shape it's in everyone should be getting ready for a long hard ride. I'm not really the gloom and doom kinda guy but I know what I see and what I feel and I don't like either. The "Bail Out" is gonna cost us a bunch, I don't what anyone to loose money I just don't want to be the one to pay them back if they do, ya know? When I was down and out a few years ago I don't remember the gov. working late at night to secure my well being or even caring if I lived or died. Come April 15th though and they know excatly who I am and my ability to to pay them their cut.
It's this junk that keeps my up at night wondering if I have done enough to be prepared. There are many more preps that I would like to have but I'm in good shape overall. More guns and ammo are always nice, but you need far more than that for the long haul. Food and heat are the most important to me right now. I have been splitting firewood like a mad man. I think I have enough for 3 average winters, average being the key word there. Most folks think were in for a long, cold and dark time, I feel they may be right, and not just about the weather. Gonna make a run to Big Lots and see what else I can come up with in the canned good department. I got a 20% coupon off your entire purchase through an email yesterday and I'm gonna take advantage of it. Anything you add to your food storage is better than nothing. Our gov can't take care of us and wouldn't even if they could so rule that out right off the bat. It's gonna be the good people of this country that have prepared for TSHF that will survive these dark days ahead. Are you one of them???????
Went to town the other day to pay my property tax. Grrrrrr!!!!! I told the lady there that I was here to make my freedom payment and she looked at me kinda funny and ask what I was talking about. Well as I understand it, if I fail to come in and make this payment the county will sell the property that I OWN to the highest bidder. Now does that sound like freedom to you I ask. She was quick to take my money and give me a reciept that shows that I can keep MY property for another year.
