Today is Labor Day, the traditional end of summer.
Unlike Memorial Day, it’s counterpart that marks the unofficial beginning of summer, Labor Day was designed to be a time of celebration, to acknowledge the hard work and determination of the American worker. It’s a day off from work to be used for parades, sporting events, and lazy days at the lake.
This Labor Day I’d encourage you to mix a little prepping in with your holiday plans. I’m not suggesting all worry and no play. Not at all. I’m suggesting that you have fun while practicing your prepping skills.
- Go to the shooting or skeet range and have some fun with your spouse.
- Instead of just having an outdoor barbecue, why not practice your primitive cooking techniques and cook over the open flame of a campfire or use a Dutch Oven to bake a cobbler.
- Grab your Bug-Out Bag and take the family on a hike and have a picnic at a nice overlook with a great vista.
These are just a few ways you can easily get a little practice for TEOTWAWKI while having family fun.
