Are these perilous times? They are, but there is no need to fear. We can have peace in our hearts and peace in our homes. We can be an influence for good in this world, everyone of one. Gordon B. Hinckley

Family Preparations:

To start the new year right, it is probably time to recheck our Bug Out Bags. If you use a backpack are the straps frayed? Seams tight and sealed against water infiltration? Are grommets tight and not frayed? If these items are not up to snuff maybe it’s time to fix it or get something new if the pack can’t be fixed. If you use a bucket, is the handle free of cracks, is the bucket sound and not fragile? If left in the sun buckets do break down and need to be replaced? What about the weight you are carrying? What is missing? What condition is your Bug Out Bag in?
