[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NTQ0MTQ2XzNCQzFGODVG] Practical tools post-collapse: A peavey Most people who begin to prepare think about bullets and handguns. I understand, they're worried about security. It's a reasonable first step, but not ultimately practical long term unless one could make gunpowder and bullets. It has it's place in preps, so please talk to an expert about that very complicated issue. Better to balance your tool budget to include basic firearms, not an arsenal, and more hand tools. I like guns. They're practical and fun to shoot. Be honest and buy and use them for this purpose and not concentrating on them to a higher degree than their value in preparedness. A gun is a tool for specific purposes and is benign most of the time. All people post-collapse will need to understand how to use tools and will hopefully have hand tools. Most people have power tools since they work faster, don't cause carpal tunnel syndrome, and require less skill. Since you won't have fuel for chainsaws, nor power for cordless drills (unless you have a solar trickle charger), then you sure better understand and have them. A peavey is an invaluable tool for moving a log and also for lifting it. You'll at first begin collecting dead wood that falls from as debris from storms from trees. Later you'll harvest wood based upon clearing land and needing to make tools or to use as lumber. This means you have to cut it and lift it. Without a team of horses and a cart, it will be very difficult to relocate it. See later posts on how to do this. Unless you're Samson, or an idiot, you're not going to hurt your back by lifting it with your strength. Chances are if you're the one cutting the wood, you're also providing for your family. If you get injured, they might starve or have no one to protect them. Even if you had many people helping, they also could get injured. That's fairly normal for an inexperienced work team.

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
