Husband and I discuss these scenarios all the time, mostly because we live very rural and we know how rural folk are. I have more caution having to traipse through rural country than city. Should an event happen while in the city, I really believe Hus…

I’m with NJ Mike – when Husband and I go out and about, 100 miles from home, we chat about ways and means to make it back home. We talk about what could happen, how we can get around it, and so on. We do this whenever we leave the homestead just as a…

Only 2 mph? Heck, my normal walking pace is 3 mph,(and I’ve got short legs!) more if I’m in a hurry. Given my normal walking pace, I figure I’d be home in 3 days, so my pack, plus the additional food and water that I keep in the car would get me home…
