There is a slight chance (but I don't know you) that if shtf, you would be carrying far more than any one should; perhaps you would even be carrying everything on your own shoulders. Your knee is you, and although this can be looked upon as "bad timing", it can also be seen as "sensible" for you. It is time for you to stop worrying and let yourself take a small but needed rest. Your survival is that you have "discernment", the ability to judge situations and handle them appropriately; your inability is likely to rest and not be the one to "do" and "reach" and "overcome". In other words, this is your wake-up call to get off of your feet and to do something for yourself internally. I bet it is hard to get you to take a break!
Now you will get one! Blessings can be disguised! You will gain your original strength and stamina, in due time, but right now, you haven't failed nor have you lost. It is perfect timing. Just imagine how hard it will be to get something like this repaired six months after the fact! Impossible I bet!

Now, I have to laugh here.
Did you REALLY believe camping was going to be a Bugging Out exercise??
You and your family are toast.
To start off, I am a married mother of two youngins, work 36 hrs a week 12 hour shifts of nonstop walking bending and stooping, I homeschool, organic garden, raise chickens, shoot guns and over all am preparing for a *prepper* scenario in which anything can happen. I am very active, but recently have been diagnosed as needing surgery.
