Been watching your thread... great info... and thank you!
I had posted somewhere on ATS under this same topic.... if you have young children and plan on buggin' out, there are inexpensive backpacks made
especially to carry a young child. My child is nearly 4 yrs., 35 pounds and growing, but still fits in it and I can carry just fine for quite a
distance. I'm small framed, but in good shape, and take my child on hikes often with the pack. Granted, my husband will have to carry the regular
pack, but I can still wear a waist pack for basic needs and a front conceal-carry pack for immediate defensive needs. Together, we can move our family
and necessities fairly quickly.
I'm praying it doesn't get to the point that buggin' out becomes necessary... I agree that it's much better to know your own fortress and have all
you need stored nearby.
What concerns me the most is extreme weather. All the preparations in the world may not be enough for most people to deal with freezing temps.
I love the idea of a symbol to recognize each other. Has anyone thought about how to communicate the symbol on a larger scale, without letting the cat
outta the bag for those who should not know?
S & F for you. By the way, I also love the avatar... very eye catching.
