[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoA9PEP9Pzs[/youtube] [/quote] There are some popular articles about partially restoring non rechargeable batteries with pulse charging. Unfortunately they can rupture in the process. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recharging_alkaline_batteries [/quote] I have an electronics background and experience. What would you recommend to people who probably are not storing up adequate supplies? I think preparedness folks are storing up supplies to cope for a set period. At some point batteries that can hold their charge well and have long life are probably the key. I'm thinking nickel iron batteries using lye made from wood ashes. The main issue I see is finding a source of nickel that isn't an alloy. There's lots of scrap iron. Nickel is not commonly mined in the USA. See this map: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nickel_%28mined%292.PNG It is was commericially mined in Riddle, Oregon and there are plans to mine in it Michigan. I see it as a very important future resource. [/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
