National Preparedness Daily Challenge: Day 15
Can you believe we’re already halfway through the month? Well, it’s true – here we are at Day 15.
My computer has the Black Screen of Death this morning, so today’s challenge is brought to you by me slowly typing it out on my phone with one finger. Please forgive any autocorrect-based weirdness. This phone once changed Arby’s to rabies when I sent my daughter a text about lunch, so anything could happen.
Today’s challenge is to find some food. You don’t actually have to harvest it because most things are not yet in season.
But spend some time walking around to find local sources of food. In a bad situation, what could you find to eat? This is a thought exercise with a bit of footwork.
What could you hunt, snare, trap, or forage? Is there a place to fish nearby? Remember, you may be doing this on foot. Try to think outside of the things we’d normally choose to eat.
What is nearby that could keep you sustained? How would you harvest it? I look forward to some creative answers in the comments.
