National Preparedness Month Daily Challenge: Day 8
Good morning! I hope your preparedness month challenges are both enjoyable and informative.
If you missed the previous challenges, you can catch up here:
We often talk about bugging out on foot. There are a variety of scenarios when you might have to use “people power” to get somewhere.
Today, I want you to take a long walk to a place from which you might have to return home on foot. Although there is the possibility you might have to GO someplace on foot, the most likely event for most of us is striking out to reach or homes and families if the SHTF while we’re away.
Some places you might want to go:
- Your children’s school
- Your workplace
- Your church
- The local store that you visit frequently
You get the idea. Depending on your level of fitness, you may not be able to do the entire walk today and that’s okay. Just spend some time transporting yourself on foot. You may need to have your spouse or a friend pick you up from your destination and drive you home. If you’re in really good shape and the place is a reasonable distance away, walk there and then turn around and walk home.
And it doesn’t matter! Just go today on a challenging walk to test your fitness level. Wouldn’t it be awful if you headed out on foot because of some kind of event and discovered then that you were unable to make it?
If this challenge is an eye-opener and you need to get in better shape, check out this no-nonsense PDF book.
How did it go?
So tell us in the comments: how did your walk go? Was it harder or easier than you had imagined? If your place of work or school is too far to manage on foot, figure out how long it would take to get home. This will help you figure out what supplies you need to keep in your get-home bag.
Share your experiences in the comments. And to be eligible to win prizes, share over in the forum.
