Jack, Deb and I could be twins! Please read this with her!

The Encyclopedia of Country Living is roughly $20 but I have no doubt she’ll become just as obsessed with it as I am. It truly is an inspiring and creative guide for everyday life and self sufficiency.

Other books to feed irrational end of the world behavior (and a couple of my favorites) are The Prepper’s Pocket Guide, written by Bernie Carr. It is pocket size and offers solutions for both home preparedness and in the moment unexpected situations.

The Zombie Survival Guide, written by Max Brooks (a New York Times bestseller). This book focuses on protecting yourself from being eaten by zombies while being trapped inside your home or on the run.

The two books are more of a humorous and helpful read but Country Living can be utilized every day, apocalypse or not.

We have bug out bags for “need to run”situations complete with an evacuation plan and a meet up place should we get separated. We have three months worth of supplies in a tornado room in our cellar. Even in the event of a world wide zombie take over the door to the room is steal and bolts from bottom to top on the inside and the room itself is solid brick.

Also, be sure to keep the gas tank full in your car and back into the driveway if you can. That way you can plow right over whoever if you have to in order to get out.

As you can see I’ve done my research, but in my defense of how irrational I may sound, not until the day Trump announced he was running for office. Donald Trump, zombies, it’s all relative, you know?
