The promise of a new day
It is never wrong to be prepaired. Only a fool will not plan ahead. Prepping is actualy a way of life for many people like the Amish and the Later Day Saints,( Mormans). So nothing happends in December of 2012, so what! There is always a reason to be ready for the unsuspected road blocks to normal every day living. Drought, Crop failure, Floods, Fire, Inflaction, Economy collaps, Lay offs. And on and on. There is a stamp in Australia that says "Save Food!" and that is good advice!
I've not read the activist post article , maybe later, but the thought, rather question is prepping worth it has often crossed my mind. all the channels from Matthew through Suzy ward-- whom I think is excellent and now have all four books-- to Tolec all say really cataclysmic scenario is definitely not on the cards. My own intuition says whilst some major major changes are coming, it will not be anywhere near as bad as some pundits who seems it have devoted their life to the doom and catastrophic model seem to think. I am not a pessimists, not in the least and so far my thoughts are on Tolec, Kimmel Drake and a few others of like mind. I think we should cheer up and enjoy the glories and beauties of Mother Earth, , she will approve of that. Give Gaia a great big hug from me. Be prepared by all means then forget about it. don't live in the mental framework of preparedness, as you miss the glories of existence that way.
I agree totally my point though, is, gt well prepared mentally spiritually and materially, thne forget about it I am against living in the mentality of constant preparedness. the whole basis of being prepared is to have security. but once you have security, leave it at that and get on with life. some seem to love in a fortress mentality, , but the world will still be there if anything big comes down the road.
Yes prepping is worth it!!! I live in Hurricane country and if not for the storms then for bad times.
I agree totally with Nicholas on this. We need to live our lives in grateful joy. Being prepared is very important, but should not over ride our thoughts and lives. It's all about balance.
Well said, Weiynala.
the important element is taking fear out of the equation. once we have a level of security, lats say enough freeze dried food for so many months, is one way, basic essentials mots important items of hygiene, tissues, soap toothpaste, again for six months and then if we have a point of exit if events erupt so we can't live where we are, these alone will go along long way to helping us sleep at night. I can take to the hills and will do so, if chaos arrives here, and staying is not an option. families need to make a joint effort. but then when all is done again take pleasure in the woods and hills and g forget about the preps. . there's a lot of fear being stoked over so called planet x, financial collapse. but we forget how enormously capable most communities are in coping whatever happens. I hope its not too hot where you both are and you are both safe.
Herein Louisiana it is in the triple digits with the humidity factored in. It is the same in Mississippi where I am moving too as well.
when we had a hot spell some years ago, in the high eighties--- please don't laugh--- some butchers allowed people to walk in out of the street into the big freezers to cool down. I cannot begin to imagine how it is where you are Tammy, beyond belief.
When it gets that hot around here, I turn into an amoeba. We northerners were not meant for such extreme heat, but we're getting it these days. I don't get anything done when it's like that. Nicholas, the freezers must have been such a welcome gift. Now a days folks will head to the movies. We haven't had 100 degrees here yet, but we've hit 96 and high humidity. Very unpleasant.
I had couple of days at 108 in Australia and many days at over 100, when I was visiting. it is like a hot flame against the body. over there though it is a very dry heat normally, and far easier tk bear. but where Tammy is with the humidity, quite frankly I would spend the day under a cold shower,!!!! but then are there any cold showers even? I suppose owning a butchers shop would be a godsend .
