This month's collection of ideas wasn't too fat a harvest so I dug into my stores. The idea of topic of the month has really attracted a lot of reads and responses up 'till now, so it looks like a good idea to keep it going for another month. We might take a break closer to the end of the year. Anyway, this month's topic is -- Mutual Assistance Have you made arrangements with neighbors, friends, relatives or organizations that you belong to for assistance where you or they are deficient in preps? What do they NOT have that you can help with? What do you expect they have that you don't and might need? In other words, who is watching your six, and whose six are you covering? There's been a lot of discussions on SM about and around the tribe, or groups of like minded individuals, but who of us really has such a group, is it well organized or just discussions around the camp fire or across the bar? Be careful with your answers, OPSEC is on the ragged edge this month.
