    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...

    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!
