Is there such a thing as an “accidental survivalist?” If yes, I think I am one. Maybe it’s just the harsh winter, but it seems I’ve been stockpiling nonperishable foods for weeks now. My pantry and cabinets are so full I doubt I could slid a package of flour tortillas in there.
And don’t even get me started on what is in my freezer. Since installing the generator last year, I don’t worry about buying a few extras to have on hand. And I already have plans to expand our vegetable garden this year.
Perhaps I’ve been listening to Glenn Beck too much. He’s often talking about being prepared for the collapse: buying gold and freeze-dried food. We need to stockpile medicines, clothes, and seeds, then fence in the yard and protect what’s ours with guns and ammo.
Now, I can’t say this will never happen, but I sure hope I’m not alive to see it.
