Not to long ago every time I clicked on my blogger dashboard and scrolled down through the list of blogs I am currently reading, seven out of ten would be talking about prepping, surviving and all the other stuff that goes with it. Have we met our peek?
The one thing through all our blogs, at least the ones I read, nobody talks about a bunker. Does any of us have one?
If the Dooms Day Prepper show has taught us anything it is to keep our heads down and our mouths shut, right?
Sure we all should now have a bug out bag and should already have tested it out to see if what we have in the bag can actually keep us alive for 72 hours, but some of us still have to search the web using countless man hours trying to find out what some of us already know.
I understand the gardens are in full swing this time of year and and by now some of us in the South should be putting food by, but I do not read anything about it. I want to learn new tricks, new time saving techniques that will come in handy in the future.
The weather is too pretty to be inside writing a blog post anyway right. As for me I have slowed down to a couple times a week on the count of it.
Within this small blogging community we have there is enough knowledge to do anything. I challenge you to do something you never done before. If you never pressure canned, it is time. If you do not have a rain water collection system, it is time. Try something solar on for size, as far I can tell there are only a hand full of people that have a solar cooker, but I never see them use it.
Maybe we have gotten soft and tired or maybe we are just scared that if we do it wrong we will be chastised and call dumb. Look how many time I screwed up on dehydrating eggs. I posted about everyone of them screw ups to and was told I was screwing it up by doing it that way, but now I can tell you just about everything there is on that subject.
Have you repacked you BOB for summer?
I think we get wrapped up in page views, the number of followers and so on. Maybe for some of us it is just that life is in the way right now, I don't know.
Lets get out and get dirty, then post about it.
