In a terrible scenario of an economic collapse or some type of natural or man-made disaster, will we wish we had a bug out location, food storage, weapons to protect ourselves, garden seeds, and access to water. But that’s not all. You may think you’ll be self-sufficient. But that won’t work. FEMA is not the… Read more »
