Things have hit a new low when a survivalist/prepping forum has a post in their general preparedness section asking for help choosing Halloween costumes for the poster's kids. OMG, how is that related to preparedness in any way, shape or form? Because 'Halloween' and 'preparedness' both have a letter e and a letter a in them???
This is what I mean by checking out a forum. If you are serious about prepping, and want good, solid advice, check out any forum you are interested in thoroughly. Make sure that your areas of interest and concerns are addressed.
