It takes a good man to admit his mistakes and an even greater man to correct them.
With the recent passing of my best friend and his choice to be cremated because as he put it, “I don’t want to be a Zombie if that shit happens” has got me to thinking about what IF something like that were to happen. It’s not completely impossible as there are things in this world that do similar things to ants and other creatures of this earth. So I have been giving some thought into putting together a survival pack in the case that something happens. Not just for the potential Zompocalypse, but for any natural disaster.
My cousin once showed me a TV series called “Doomsday Preppers” and at the time I thought them to be complete nutters. I still think most of the ones that I watched were, but at the same time, I feel like everyone should have at least SOMETHING planned. Definitely not to the extent that these people on the show have done. So over the next couple of months, with what ever extra cash I might have laying around and adding things to a Survival Gift Wish list, I am going to start to piece together a backpack and some other items so that if something were to happen, all I would have to do is grab the back and run.
The logical side of my brain thinks this part of me is crazy for even thinking of doing something like this, but what can it hurt? Most of the items that I will be getting with not only be good for survival in a catastrophe, but also for camping and hiking. So as long I use them for something other than just sitting around gathering dust, it wont be for a waste.
I will be making some posts over the coming months with some choices of items I am considering getting and put it out there for a vote and whatever is the most popular after a given time, I will see about purchasing. I’m not sure if this is something that my girlfriend is going to be on board with or even want to create one of her own, but I just hope she is willing to support my little bit of crazy I have going on right now.
