Better yet, you’re going to build a basic first aid kit that’s far better than those done-for-you kits at the pharmacy, and we’re not going to break the bank building it.(more…)
Heating Our Home In A Power Outage is part two of my After Action Report from last week after our power went out for a day. I was able to put some of our preps to use and work on an after-action report. I wanted to make ‘heating our home in a power outage‘ a separate article.
