I guess I've always known I should be preparing for difficult times, but then you get caught up in the rat race of your occupation, get the kids to the (insert activity here), homework, etc. The past three years with the economy being white hot, what could possibly go wrong? This pandemic has really opened my eyes to how fragile the food supply system really is and that is scary. It's my hope that others are waking up and planting gardens, finding a local butcher if they don't have the means to harvest their own meat.
I'm in the Louisville, KY. area. I spent 8 years in the U.S. Navy, been through SERE school out at Warner Springs, so I have some very basic survival skills. I have always had a small garden, but have exponentially made it bigger this year to include nutrient dense crops, rather than the run of the mill peppers, tomato and cucumbers.
In regards to security, I have what I feel is necessary to get out of dodge quickly. I think I'd like to get a compound bow for hunting purposes should things get so crazy, we would need to go dark and not run around shooting guns. Lots of good information in the videos! Keep up the great work!
