We started throwing around ideas and talking about preppers.I don't think that I will ever be a prepper. I have no desire to try and find a place for 7 years worth of dried lima beans let alone everything else. But I would totally stock pile 7 years worth of toilet paper if I had a coupon. See I'm not crazy at all.
What if you were a two week prepper? What would you need to survive two weeks in your house? We have had a few really nasty storms roll through and we lost power for days. We could handle it-I had more than enough TP stored.
But what would you need to survive for two weeks? What scenarios would you prep for? Winter? Summer? Would it be more like camping in your house?
It's normally Food, Clothing, Shelter that you need. I don't think that it would be that hard to get food. But cooking it could be a problem. I pray you have clothing in your house! Shelter would be well, your house.
I think the problem would be a heat and cooking source. Also having enough water for two weeks would be hard. I know that you can treat water with bleach. Hmmm, and then there is flushing the toilets.
Ok never mind, maybe I shouldn't fly off on a tangent anymore!
I did try and find a list for something like this but all I got was info on becoming an extreme prepper. Good Lord! It was everything from alfalfa sprouts to defending yourself with a sling shot.
I think that I will just get a really good generator and pretend that that will be enough!
