A question from Victoria
I’ve been silently following your blog for three years. Based upon your wisdom, and that of the delightful Pack…there has been a good amount of progress made in my personal preparation. You have many wise people here.
Recently I’ve felt the need to break my silence and ask a few questions on behalf of numerous women in my situation: Many of my single/single again women friends are in the suburbs or outlaying areas of larger cities.
We, too, have sensed a need to prepare for something….although we are not sure what. It is not a sense based upon mutual discussion, but a huge, individual “knower” feeling.
It is a strong sense (from VERY sensible women) that’s been on-going for the last 5 years….at least. It is not fear, but a calm, prompting to take some action
Now, to our reason for contacting you and the Pack: We want your wisdom. Many of us long to be in community ….in the country or in small town with lots of resources.
Or, like a couple of my cousins, on a mountain top. We would like to be elsewhere in a place that is away from the city. Like many in the Pack.
Many of our beloved relatives lived like this. That is why we “get” what the Pack knows is best and we long for it. Much of the advice here is from folks who have the privilege of owning land, farm animals, rural homesteads, etc. You can bet we love reading about it. :) The gun recommendations, too.
However, because of life’s circumstances, we are where we are….urban or suburban.
Thanks to you and the Pack, we know to have 3 to 6 months food; bug out bags; bug in supplies and even bug out trunks. Yep, I can get home on foot from 50 to 100 miles away thanks to the Pack’s recommendations.
What we long for is some wise, level-headed preparation advice for the suburban/urban/situations: Civil unrest; job loss; economy crunch; weather; unknown….. There is much online, but we long for sensible, knowledgeable and truth in advice.
Bottom line: Can you recommend someplace that those of us stuck in suburbia can go to further educate ourselves on being sensibly prepared?
