Nothing major, just a quick trip to visit family, and look for a 2nd house closer to them. The summer heat really exhausts me, we’re missing out on time with the grands/great-grands, and I’d feel better if I have access to different parts of the country, if the need to GOOT – Get Out Of Town does arise.
Having a foot in several locations gives me maximum flexibility, should the SHTF.
Plus, my brother and sister have been experiencing poor health, and, well, I need to step up to the plate on helping out. Even with my RA and asthma, I’m the healthiest one of the bunch.
We have several house-inspections set up, for a whirlwind blitz over the weekend. We’re not looking for Tara, just a nice enough space, with an acre or two. We’re not up to the intensive level of work that would be necessary to full-on homestead, but we would like to set aside some food and fuel supplies.
You know, just in case.
I’ve been whittling down my stuff to fit, made room for a radio, tablet, and laptop, and made sure I had enough unders to cover myself. Internet service may be spotty, so don’t expect to hear from me. I already posted about one of my pet peeves here.
