    Just the 'basics'

    Well....I have a fairly well stocked first aid kit, and the skills to handle most minor injuries.  I have enough drinking water stored for 2 people to last about a week--after that we could always take the cap off the well and lift water out by hand if the electric was out...

    Sure...I Think

    Um...yes. I am. I know where the torch is, should there be a power failure. I know where the door is, and any other possibly exits, such as the living room window. But one hopes something won't become that desperate!

    Yes. It has been a way of life

    for me since I was a kid. I am not a "Prepper" or a "Survialist" (as they was called back in the 70's and 80's) I am a Survivor. Being prepared has saved my life and the lives of others many times. My preparedness has help through floods, blizzards, firestorms, ice storms...

    In An Airplane.

    Your seat cushion becomes a floaty-device upon chance the plane coasts safely into welcoming waves. Simply secure the seat-belt around your body, kick your legs up in an SOS position, and bob comfortably until help arrives.
