In general, I think folks that do a fair amount of camping will be a little more resourceful than the general public in the event of a national emergency.

Oh yeah... things you rarely even think about. I also picked up the "Army Survival Guide" for my Kindle for $0.99 about two weeks ago. It has a lot of good stuff in there too.

Do you guys also remember Katrina? It doesn't take long for a bad situation to go really bad given the right conditions.

This example, by far, represents the exact truth in failure on a national level.
The ill-prepared found out the hard way that local police, local government, federal government..you name the agency...they weren't there to help. For days..and weeks.

Those who stood their ground against the aftermath and helped anyway they could with the resources that they had, were few. And they stand proud.

If we want this thread to remain open, let`s stay on topic and leave out the Katrina stuff. I`ve had to edit/delete a few posts. Cheers.

Here's one of a few good resources to suggest how to use your rv as a resource during it's off-duty time

Is your Rv Emergency Ready?

Not long ago, Lee's neck-o-the-woods (Virginia) experienced a rare earthquake. You really don't know what can happen. Plan for the unexpected. If you have and RV, you have a great opportunity to be better prepared for and emergency. Happy prepping!
