Washington state here.
Mom with two boys. I never wear high heels unless I am going out…I am 6 foot tall, and if I was in that situation with an EMPwalking 100 miles home, I’d find the first horse even partially broke and ride home. No heels.
I live far enough from town, we don’t have many preppers here, so no groups as far as we are aware…we are on our own.
