I know, I know, I'm a Section Slut - LMAO!!
I love organising posts into sections - it's part of my OCD that doesn't get satisfied in my RL.
Well, this one will be about Survivalism/Prepping - or as the many blogs seem to call it - TSHTF -
The Shit Hits The Fan or TEOFWAWKI - The End Of The World As We Know It.
Now, by all accounts - those being my own google-fu powers - most of the Survivalist blogs/facebook pages are American, although there are a number of Aussie ones springing up. They range from sensible types that are aimed at those who want to be able to last through a short period of time to blogs that are seriously W T F DUDE??? lol
But all have the same thoughts - how to survive when disaster strikes.
What sorts of disasters are we talking about here?
Anything from a few days without power or with blocked off roads to major disasters like hurricanes, cyclones, earthquakes to infrastructure collapse like power grid failures, government collapses, End Of World disasters and my personal Favorite/Terror - Zombie Apocalypse!!!!
I have spoken before on my blog about changing our lifestyles to a slower pace and becoming more sufficient. Due to my health issues, I have to be careful what I do and this limits us quite a bit in this aspect - no heavy gardening or prep work here. So that kinda means that we will never be truly SELF sufficient. But I hope that me are able to set ourselves up to a degree where if TSHTF, we are able to care for ourselves and family and friends until everything levels out.
So that means Ideas and these blogs are a fascinating source for that.
This sort of life has always attracted me - anyone who was younger/old enough to remember all the After The World Ends movies - Logan's Run, Day Of The Triffids, Mad Max, Planet of the Apes and My favorites were the B grade movies - SolarBabies, New Eden, Soldier - that sort of thing LOL!
Anyway, tons of great ideas on how and what is needed to survive a disaster, whether it be short term or long term.
So, I will be using a new label/subsection to link these together - hopefully it goes more successfully than my camping one LMAO!
