I often think that I may not be around much longer. Getting long in the tooth, well what few I have left, and creaky in the knees, low back hurts after loading some wood into the truck, and takes a bit longer to get down on the ground to put the chains on the tires. And then there that getting back up again! I have started thinking in terms of what prep's I may leave for those that may have a need once I am gone. I eat simply, so stocking for that is easy. It takes a bit longer to cut and stack firewood for a winter and has me thinking once again about how to do it without a chain saw. Need to buy those hand saws. Prepping takes on a different angle when one is aging out. The needs for an adequate medication supply, what will one do for scripts for glass's, denture adhesives instead of tooth paste, no shampoo or hair combs. To be honest, covid did not hit me all that much. I see it as a cheap lesson on not getting complacent. So looking at my fall back/live in home in the hills still has projects that have been put off far to long. I may be coming to a time when I will mot be able to continue to work in my field, so I may need to be much more self reliant for basic needs and that takes money right now to establish the an infrastructure. It will all get done now.
