Learn From Haiti
« on: January 16, 2010, 10:41:33 am »
These Haitians are thirsty and hungry. The have to wait on aid, kill each other with machetes, only the strong survive. They did not prepare in any way. How could most living in abject poverty bordering on anarchy on a daily basis prepare.

I challenge and encourage each of you that read this post makes some plans and preparations in case of  a natural disaster. If the train or trucking supplies were hit by some disaster, we would not last long without supplies.

Although you cannot possibly plan for every contingency, some preparation is better than none.

The idea is not to die for your country. It is to make the other sonofabi$%#@ die for his. G. Patton

AMEN- it is better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it, ive always thought that this line is a good way to think about things

And only a couple of generations ago, it was standard practice.

There's nothing wrong with keeping a little extra on hand-- water especially.

Don't stock what you don't already eat.
Buy low and stack deep.

Buy a box of big box of Ramen and a case of water for your neighbors.

Problem solved.

It's not the world that needs saving, it's the human spirit that's in jeopardy.

My late grandmother went through the depression. She had scores of food in the home. Surprisingly, she had quite a bit of coffee stored.

I have water purifiers and disaster straws that filter out harmful pollutants.

That's what we do. We keep a big stock of regular canned or dried food that we eat anyway. That way, we cycle through it, so it never reaches its expiration date.
A kitten told me to do it.
