No matter what you are doing, whether it is going on a camping trip, hiking away from a central campsite, or preparing your family and home to be able to make it through extreme weather or a disaster the most important and critical thing you have to have is you have to have a plan. Periodically, we all see the effects of a natural disaster and we see the disastrous results of not being prepared. Just take a look at the north-eastern United States over the last year. Before that we saw it in the Alabama and Tennessee tornados, Joplin, Missouri and before that, New Orleans and Lake Charles in Louisiana and Houston, Texas.
Homo Sapiens Sapiens became the dominant species on the planet because we are a tribal people. In our groups, there is always someone along the way who puts things together and creates the plan. In the modern world, some people have that option, and many do not. Consequently, many people do not have the benefit of someone who takes charge and plans. Therefore, we have to plan for ourselves. When you are preparing your plan, answer the following questions:
1. Where are we going to go if we can't stay here?
2. How far is it and how are we going to get there?
3. How many days are we going to be traveling and how many days are we going to be there?
4. How much food and water do we need per day and per person?
5. How are we going to carry what we need?
We will be talking about this detailed plan in our seminar.
