    I just got back to OK yesterday from cutting and clearing tens of thousands of pounds of pine that fell on my dad's property, fence and house two blocks from the water in Panama City, FL. He's not really a prepper but did have a small Honda generator, Stihl chainsaw, H2O, tools, guns and usually has about a month's worth of food on hand. Although it was rough, I can tell you his situation compared to most of the folks around him was far more pleasant. I think plain old common sense overlaps into prepping. One wouldn't think putting a couple of pieces of plywood against the garage door and pulling your vehicles flush against it is anything you'll read in a prepper blog but I guarantee you that's why his garage door didn't collapse like all his neighbors or destroy what was inside with it. That little Honda generator barely sipped fuel but kept the fridge cool and helped maintain a little bit more normal life.

    I'm not really a prepper but I took my daughter down there so she could help and also see first hand why we have a few things on hand like a Big Berkey water filter a well stocked pantry and never let the cars get below a half a tank of gas.

    Outstanding idea!!! Never would have thought of that but I appreciate the post and the idea.

    And here I was just going to post that this weekend is daylight savings time and in addition to checking the batteries in the smoke and CO detectors, it is a good time to rotate the gasoline from the cans to the cars and refill the can with fresh.

    I went down there to help my Father and to teach my Daughter a good life lesson but it was me who came away changed forever.

    It's pretty amazing how one can have a life changing moment when they have to confront total destruction and humans ability to overcome that to eventually recover and thrive. We are an amazing specie.
