In my endeavour to be self-sufficient, I spend a little time each week either reading books, magazine articles or blogs to help me to learn the basics of what is needed to sustain myself if something tragic strikes. I find YouTube videos also a great supply of information. It’s amazing the things people are doing. Such innovation! I love it.
No, I’m not planning for the end of the world. A tragic event could be as simple as a class one hurricane sweeping through and knocking out power for a week, which then closes local banks, grocery stores, gas stations and everything else where one would run for supplies. Power poles might be sliced in half and dangling from the wires or huge trees might have fallen and blocked main roads, making them impassible. (Hurricane Juan, September 2003).
