your absolute worst case scenario SHTF event
.and then think
about it happening while you are at Disneyworld.
Or in Hawaii.
Or on a road
trip to the middle of nowhere.
As a prepper,
have you considered what would happen if the poo hit the oscillating
blades while you were on vacation? No matter how well prepared you
are, how much food you have stored, or how armed to the teeth you
are, if you arent where your preps are, they arent going
to do you one lick of good.
think of this chilling fact and it makes me never want to leave
my general vicinity. Because the fact of the matter is, in the world
we live in today, anything could happen at any time. My feelings
of security for myself and my family are in place due to my preparedness.
shares the same sentiment as every time he travels further than
an hour away, he takes his 72-hour bag. Non-preppers wouldnt
understand this behavior, but preppers would appreciate the preparedness
mindset and know that emergencies happen when we least expect them
said, your prepping mindset should not mean that you cease to live
and enjoy your life. Travel is an enriching experience for adults
and children alike and the rewards are manifold.
You can set
your mind at ease by packing a vacation preppers kit. Remember,
It is better to have it and not need it, then to need it and
not have it. My kit has the following:
72 Hour Kit (which always remains in the truck)
- Local maps
for destination and route
- Tent or
- Cash in
(check the laws for your destination first)
- Basic tool
repair items and manual

of gasoline (at least)
- Small camp
stove with fuel
- Can Opener

- First aid
