I got up this morning and checked the survival blogs that I regularly read. I try to participate by submitting comments to let the authors know that I appreciate their thoughts and efforts. There are a number that I particularly enjoy. I’ve already mentioned the Bear Ridge Trading Post.
I also like SHTF Blog a lot. There are three authors – Ranger Man, Calamity Jane, and Jarhead Survivor. Jarhead regularly sparks discussion by creating survival scenarios and asking what you’d do in those situations. I don’t always comment, but I do consider each one and plan my course of action. I think that’s important – plan ahead for every scenario that you can imagine. That way when you’re caught in it, you’ll have a better idea what to do.
There are other blogs as well, I’ll mention those over time. Of course you can find a list in our blog roll as well.
Cooked some scrambled eggs and biscuits this morning. My daughters helped. The eggs were from our free-range chickens; the biscuit were store bought canned biscuits. Laura uses coupons and in-store specials and regularly gets things like this for next to nothing. I like getting things for next to nothing.
After breakfast, I went to get my oldest son who had spent the night at a friend’s birthday campout party. It’s good for boys to get out and spend time in a tent.
This afternoon we cut and split at pickup truck load of firewood. Since we heat one end of our home with a pot-bellied stove, we need to make sure that we have enough wood to last through the winter months. The wood that we cut was from a pecan tree that had fallen about a year ago. It should be good and seasoned.
This evening, I made chili for the kids and me while Laura went to a women’s spaghetti supper at church. After supper I watched a little football on television and am calling it night.
