Well,heres another little useless post that most people will probably just glance at,if they read it at all,but I was just sitting here wondering how many of you out there could start a fire without one of those store bought fire logs and a cigarette lighter?In todays political climate,and I'm talking about the world situation not just that fiasco up in Washington D.C.,it would behoove all of us to be ready to survive in a world in which we couldent call 911 for some one to come and save us,with earth quakes,mega storms and floods happening in almost all parts of the world,each of us should have a disaster plan,what to do in case of emergency or at least a first aid kit.Americans have gotten so complacent and dependant on the state,local and federal government that they expect to be rescued by those entities in all emergencies,however,what if those agencies were non existant,what if a disaster so huge happened that no services what so ever were available?could you survive?do you have emergency food on hand?medical supplies stored away?think about it!
