Last night after too many beers my lady and I were talking about teotwawki and she was feeling very overwhelmed by all of it. I don't know if the beer had an influence on her, or, if the beer allowed her to freak-out a bit. Due to the fact that my beer consumption was significantly less than hers, I tried my best to reason with her. I forgot the old saying - Never try to reason with a drunk, it is like trying to reason with an idiot. We never got to the point of a verbal (or physical) fight, but, the conversation was going in circles - around and around. I am thinking now (hindsight what it is) that beer and wine might not be a good idea for a SHTF situation - we will need our wits fully and completely about us. We talked about zombie-raiders, chemical-spills (due to the close proximity of a major north-south train track nearby), airplane accidents (due to the close proximity of the Calgary International Airport) and other situations that might cause us to leave-town as fast as possible. After all the talking, I figure that we are better prepared by heading home first and see if we can wait-out the problems. The next thing to prepare for us is to convert our digital media to paper media and place it all into duplicated zipper'd binders for easy access. The next thing to do is to create a few more BOB's and BOK's for the vehicles to stay in the vehicles and not just stay in the house for easy transport out. If something happened that we were away from the house and something happened - it could be impossible to get home to gather supplies and go. My new motto: Better to have with and not need than need and not have with. That is my early-morning rant for today ..
