An Article Worth Reading

“The Survival Mom” has a guest article by “Outback Medicine”, in guest post format called, “Ask the Outback Doc”. (Wow, three links in one sentence.) It is an article I recommend reading, as I’m sure there are a few items and concepts that just about every reader will find useful.

Mr. Outback has a blog-roll with a couple entries leveled at us here in the U.S.. (Upon further reading, it looks as if they are based HERE?)

Retreat Supplies

The purpose of a retreat, generally, is to allow a person, or a group of persons to lay over until the problem that forced their relocation has been resolved. Storm, civil disorder, pandemic, etc., can serve as the trigger for a relocation. It should support life as well as a regular home, supplying shelter from the weather, food and water, medical care and security.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) – Your Own Defibrillator

You’re at your retreat. The world has not crashed, and you don’t think it will. Still you keep the place up to snuff because it also doubles as a great place to vacation, and triples as a second home if you lose your income and primary residence (the Three-fer rule….)
