Where will you go when the it hits the fan? Will you stay put or head for the hills? Is your retreat secure? These are just a few of the questions you need to ask yourself. Many of the folks I know plan on forting up in prepared locations. I prefer the wilderness for many reasons. First, I like the freedom of being able to move at a moments notice. Second, there is an abundance of food and natural medicine for the taking. Third, less human contact. I could give you more, but you get the point. Perhaps you need the security of four walls and a roof. That’s okay. Wherever you plan to hunker down, learn every nook, cranny, creak, pop, and blade of grass. It just might save your life.
