Preparedness is not about piling emergency gear, but also training yourself to tackle what is necessary. I don't like to talk about it but it is a fact. There are a number of weaknesses that may stop me from doing what is necessarty to survive. One of them is the inability to kill animals. :cry: I have seen my father and uncles slaughter chikens and my cousins do it sometimes, but I have never managend to break the psychological barrier. :dunno: I have other weaknesses off course, but you will be bored because the list is long unfortunately. I am trying to battele thses weaknesses but life isn't helping. FWIW, there are annyoing pigeons living all over my house, and I didn't have the heart to remove their chicks and destroy their nests. How about you ? And if you have won the battle against your weaknesses, how could you do it ?
