[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzMzNjQ3Mjg0XzJBQkE4QkU4] Using the river People had limited options when they moved their families from the urban to the wilderness areas. Sure some people used covered wagons, that's the most common image I'll bet you imagine, but many also used flatboats and keelboats. The utilized the speed of a navigable river to use speed to move relatively quickly but also carry more items down river. Flatboats were not very steerable, but they could carry a lot of tools, supplies, people, animals, etc. They didn't move fast at all, and were prone to river pirates as a result. There's no place to go if you're plodding along a river and short fast maneuverable canoes with ranged weapons come along side and then it's hand-to-hand. Then the pirates made off with womenfolk and a huge haul of goods. Some families today are descendants of them if you dig around in their skeleton closets. Other pirates whole growing clans were wiped out (including the captives and subsequent children) by incensed townsfolk and survivors who'd formed posses. http://mjcpl.org/rivertorail/beforesteam/flatboat http://www.essortment.com/serial-killers-biography-harps-brothers-americas-first-20432.html Keelboats used poles and bigger crews to steers the rivers. Many had very large cargo holds and actually had cannon. http://www.greatriverroad.com/lewclark/boats.htm It's very possible that smart folks might use the lesser considered routes of rivers to extricate themselves from a urban area by small watercraft. Many are available like pontoon boats, canoes, rowboats, john boats, etc. Of course using the river's current and stealth, one could quietly slip away, then fire up engines as long as possible and move great distances. But then one would have to be very prepared on what to do, precisely planning the escape, and then where's the final destination and how to then move all the cargo? I think it's a doable plan versus taking a car that can get tied up in traffic. It's something to consider carefully in any event as others may use the same strategy as Big and Little Harp did so long ago. Inevitably post-collapse, the first trade networks will again happen as river traffic. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
