Wakeup Call: It is happing NOW for me.
By Polar Bear Dancer, aka Dave, the APN Editor.
Well, most people look for ‘signs’ for reasons to prep or bug out. Well, there is one going on NOW, here in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where I am.
This fire started yesterday, Saturday June 23rd. I was out of town when it happened (so I cannot be blamed for it! LOL). It started in what they call: Waldo Canyon, up in the mountains about 20 miles west of Colorado Springs.
The area around here has been very dry, and the fire danger warning is extremely high. Probably due to the mild winter and little rainfall.
So now my ‘prepper’ instincts started kicking in.
Food, Shelter, Water.
Where to go? One of my ‘Bug-Out-Locations was closed to me because of the fire. Luckily, I have 2 more.
Plan the routes.
Make sure there is enough fuel in my vehicle. Is there any mechanical problems with the vehicle?
Started packing the supplies, and waited. Luckily, there still is communication with others, so I can get updates on the activities.
Amazing though, a local radio station, along with the county governments involved, have been offering information and resources for people during this event. This gives me hope about my fellow man. Yeah!
The first picture is near my usual grocery store, King Soopers. The second picture is right around the corner from my place.
There are many thoughts going through my mind now, but as you can guess, this is NOT the time to second guess yourself and doubt your actions.
More to follow, after the event clears up!
Thanks for reading!
