We teach an informal class from time to time at Church. They are usually on preparedness, 72 hr kits (bugout bags) family history etc. This one will be to the singles on 72/96 hour kits with a bit of gardening in small places and or containers on the side. I am trying to approach this one a little differently so they realize how important these can be. Yes I start thinking and writing things up wayyyy ahead of time this class is the 3rd Sunday in May. That way I have plenty of time for revising and etc. Dh will go through and add things he also thinks are important and is usually the main speaker. I do a bit of the talking (sometimes I think to much lol) Our kits are almost always ready to go. I do need a new canteen as somehow the cap of my came off and is lost. I think maybe little grand daughter had something to do with that lol. Having a little imp in the house from time to time things happen. Dh says as he opens the address phone book, "what are all these x's all over the pages?" I say Kay, he says Oh lol. Anyway, many folks that live down in the valley especially new move in's think there is nothing here that might make them grab their bags and head for the hills. I put a stop to that way of thinking real quick. We have Clearwater paper which has big tanks of chlorine, so does the waste water plant. If one would rupture the gas would go to low lying areas. There is an earthquake fault sitting down the Clearwater River which runs right through and by Lewiston Idaho. Not to mention volcanos that sit 6 hours drive away. When Mt ST Helens went off they had 7 or so inches of ash here. If some of the others went off there would be even more. So there ya go lol and hope it goes well and we can get across the importance of it all. If anyone has ideas to throw in for help to peek their interest jot it down here please.
