The Tribe, which is slowly growing, has often come into the "Survival" section enmasse when we saw Katrina and other natural disasters happening. I bet that the traffic stats on preparedness sites went off the charts on 9/12/2001. Just want to make sure that we are keeping ourselves squared away here in a lull time. I'd rather be the one Not scrambling for stuff/plans when another bad thing strikes. I think we need to keep the regional group idea alive. I've been stocking things away here and there and have recently been re-evaluating my stockpile of goods. I need to thin some things out and grow a few other areas. I hope everyone else is doing the same. I've never been a doom and gloomer by nature. I do however feel that the overall pulse of the world will lead to a few likely scenarios. Oil, Terrorism, War, Economy. These are daily headlines and I'd like to think we here can and are able to deal with any future bumps in the road.
