Your shelter is everything. We do a lot of talking about wilderness shelters and tents but you have a state of the art shelter worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Its your home and we should do as much as possible to care for and fix that investment, in times of disaster. The idea of abandoning that home should be the farthest thing from your mind. Bugging out should only be something you must do when no other option exists. Still, most people are ill equipped to handle issues with your home. They don’t have the skill or the tools to fix it.
This article will drive home that point as it explores the topic of the things people forget to prep. You will get a list of items that you, too, might need to consider on your next trip to the hardware store.
