    Something that got my wife thinking

    Mine understands and lets me pick up a few things and so on, but is the type that won't get fully involved until something happens. Lol. With the baby coming in March, she's slowly swinging to the prepping side. lol.

    Something that got my wife thinking

    My wife has those books and she doesn't care at all for prepping. She doesn't care that I do it, but there's no extra budgeting or agreeing from her. She's like most Americans. It takes a disaster to get her to participate.

    Lights out by David Crawford

    Lol. I downloaded the free one to my work computer and will probably buy the one for my pandigital. I've been reading it off and on between calls, (which is hard as there is seldom time between calls) and I'm already on page 105. lol. I started about 10 minutes before my shift was over last night and resumed at 9am CST this morning.

    dog or no dog?

    Exactly. I was day dreaming the other day and i was thinking about zombies or Chinese or whoever attacking and my wife and I having to leave and leaving the dogs in the backyard and it dang near tore me up thinking about it. There's not a lot of room for them to defend themselves with the fence and I couldn't imagine coming back to find them shot or half eaten. There's nowhere that I go when I'm home that my Weimaraner isn't right behind me. He's my boy and I couldn't leave him. Although, he doesn't bark unless there's something worth barking about and he's part ninja in his ability to silently move around.

    Inventory Pics???

    I guess what I meant was do you use small containers to keep certain supplies together? Like a plastic lunch box to keep water tablets, small cup, food, etc, in, inside your bag?

    Sleeping Pad

    My biggest problem is that I am a side sleeper and the last time I went camping I couldn't sleep because my hips are so bony that it hurts. Plus, I plan on doing some cold weather camping and the extra insulation couldn't hurt.

    CERT Or Other Groups

    Tis true. That also my biggest issue with most training. They set the schedule to work for the majority of people, but I'm never in the majority.
