What To Do With the Sentimental Stuff in a Bug-out Situation


Posted on March 3, 2014 by

What to do with the Sentimental Stuff in a Bug-Out Situation I would consider myself to be somewhat of a sentimental person. I’ve been around the block a time or two and have collected some lovely treasures along the way. So why do we hold on to these worthless things? (worthless to others) One word. Reminiscence. These items spark powerful memories and feelings that take us back to the good ‘ol days.  They enable us to be transported back in time. With two grown children and two semi-grown highschoolers of my own, I have acquired items that I wouldn’t take […]

Preparedness While in the Car


Posted on February 4, 2014 by

If the recent snowstorm in Atlanta taught us anything, it revealed that a majority of  the population is not ready for such an event.  There are countless stories of people stranded on the interstates and roadways of Atlanta without food, water, or proper attire.  I doubt anyone caught on the roadways woke up that day planning to spend the night in gridlock.   That is one of the best reasons to be prepared.  You never know when your day will take a turn for the worse and an ordinarily routine day will turn into a nightmare.  In a commuter city […]

Oh, and please don’t let […]

Atlanta Snowmageddon 2014?


Posted on January 29, 2014 by

Here in Atlanta, people all across the city woke up this morning to disaster.  Unlike a normal day, many people are waking up in their cars, hotel rooms, gymnasiums or shelters. Unable to get to their homes after a relatively small snowstorm wreaked havoc in the city, they were forced to spend the night away from the comfort of their own bed.   Cars litter the roadway where they were abandoned as they ran out of gas or their drivers opted to walk instead.  The stories are endless.  Hours to only travel a few hundred feet.  Schools with hundreds of […]
