And our new location was part of the preps.
The biggest part, perhaps.
I agree. Some folks will be lucky despite their location being bad as regards SHTF, and others unlucky despite being in a very favorable location, but a good location very much increases your odds.
Plans without preps can happen to any of us.
House fire, vacations, simply being caught across town and not being able to get home.
Just more difficult.
Anyone can be caught far from home or perhaps lose their home and preps to any manner of calamity, but those of us who have otherwise planned and prepped will at least still have our prepper’s mindset & knowledge and we will be quick to size up the situation.
