we have a flagstaff pop up camper...it's in the bug out plan, holdsI've had the feeling for a couple of weeks now. We were supposed to have a getaway to Vegas for 4 nights next week, I cancelled it due to an overwhelming feeling. Didn't feel good about traveling or leaving our children with grandparents. On another note, I was worried about not having an appropriate BOV. Was searching craigslist for an rv/camper all weekend. We own an auto repair shop, and today, we had a customer show up who didn't have $ to pay after his car was fixed. He came back with an old motorhome and asked if we'd accept that for payment! Wish more preps would just show up in the drive like that!
*Andi, I can totally picture that scene. And the thing is, she probably wasn't truly mad at the clerk (the clerk doesn't make the prices) - she just hit her snapping point. We're all feeling the sqeeze...Anxiety levels are starting to rise ... I was waiting to pay for my fuel the other day when a 'lady ' went overboard over a cookie in the check out line. The price for the cookie, one dollar!... She had a fit right there.
She was NOT going to pay that for a 25 cent cookie ... (and I agree with her ... it was a 25 cent cookie) ... she ranted and raved for a few minutes ... then told the clerk where they could stick that cookie. eek
It did give me a chill ... of things to come ...
And to be honest it gave me a clue ... kind of scary when you think about it, but folks are starting to get "mad".
Keep an eye & a ear open...
So split it in half. Food is not going to get any cheaper. Several food suppliers have recently announced 7%-10% increases that will be showing up on the shelf by June. If things go south in a hurry, you still need to eat.There is a major battle between paying down debt and buying food going on in my head!!
