Freedom, I think the good ol’ American term is “hunker down!” (def: “prepare to stay in a place or position for a long time, usually in order to achieve something or for protection”)
By the way, Freedom – been missing you here. Glad to see you’re alive, hopefully well, and still in it for the long haul. Hope you’ve fully recovered from the devastating hurricanes and that this year is MUCH better for you.
