GirlScout, great lesson learned which I hope will help you in the future.
MountainBiker, loved the story about your son-in-law, I also try to always keep the car gas half full and some cash too. Also your saying “Most people cannot see any reality other than the one they currently live in” is so true! One very important thing is to always keep an open mind to all possibilities that can happen and plan for them. I also like the saying to be the hunter not the hunted.
