Some things come to mind as we enter the cold season. Do you have a light source? Hammer? Axe? Hatchet? Saw? Screw driver? Wrench? Allen wrenches? Wire cutters? Nails? Screws?
IF not, you may want to invest now while you can! All of these basic tools are much needed during a natural disaster! Well, that axe, hatchet, machete, or knife might need some sharpening. Do you have a sharpening stone? With tools you can make all sorts of stuff make do.. You know the saying right? Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. That said, can you do it? Yes you can!
BUT, do you have rope to tie the tarps up? Yes I am serious. We went camping for a family reunion a few years ago, it was fun. But the last day, the heavens opened up and we were drenched!! Brother T just happened to have a HUGE GIANT tarp and rope and was able to put up a shelter for everyone to be under for the last meal, and to keep kids dry while we packed up camps (something like 5 or 6 tents plus mess tents). Sure the ranger came by and said it was against the rules, but we told them we'd take it down when we left in an hour or so.
If the power goes out, what is your heat and cooking source? How long will it last? Will you need help? Do you have a supply of medications you might need?
