I think this reinforces a critical point. Breathial was forced into a SHTF situation, and found a solution that he thought worked for he and his family. Actually living in the situation revealed weaknesses in his solution. Things break, and when stressed they break more often.
How many preppers think they have their solution for SHTF locked down? Then reality hits, and the flaws to our solution show up. If you haven’t throughly tested your solution beforehand, finding out the flaws in a real SHTF situation can be dangerous if not downright fatal.
My constant worry is what am I missing. I know I don’t know it all. Thanks to this forum, and the people that populate it, I’ve been able to fill in some of the missing pieces.
