I sense the need to move quickly now.
Funny thing. This story is ABSOLUTELY TRUE.
My prepping started, and I can tell you exactly when.
I was cleaning out a closet, my wife had passed the previous year, and there is a closet in a spare bedroom I have.
I was due to leave town during mid-week, had some things I needed to take care of.
So that weekend, I started thinking I should use the space and store some stuff, I went to the store, bought about a hundred dollars of canned goods, and started arranging it in the closet.
I know the exact date, because a bit more than one week later, two airplanes crashed into the WTC buildings.
It was Sep 2, 2001
I took that as a sign that I need to get serious about learning things and making preps.
This time it feels different, though. Like a volcano getting ready to erupt...
Some sociopaths don't get that part, and want to steal. That's also part of the human condition.
Those that prepare survive.
Those that don't, or decide to steal, tend to not survive.
We ignore our gut instincts at our peril, they have been developed over thousands of years.
Ever see a squirrel that didn't put nuts away for winter?
