Every once in a while I'll get an itch between my shoulder blades and a vague feeling that something bad is coming down the pike.
I'm sure that to those of the "progressive" bent will call it "combat veteran paranoia" or other such nonsense. Anyways the last time I got this "itchy" was in 2006 getting ready for a repeat terrorist event that never happened. So I don't know why I'm feeling particularly unprepared and insecure now, but I am and so little by little the wife and I are getting ready to test a one week survival plan. It won't be a true "survival" week because we'll have utilities, but it should test our food plan. Later on we can do the "camp stove cooking" to test our resiliency for loss of utilities.
But, prepping really means "organizing" to a large extent, and for the last hour I set up the "shelving unit of the apocalypse" in the basement. http://www.amazon.com/Raxa-Power-Garage-Shelving-Shelves/dp/B005EG44K2/ref=pd_sim_sbs_hi_5 I don't know if this is the same unit we bought at Costco a few years back, but it is the closest I could find on amazon.com
I also upgraded 9 milspec STANAG magazines with MAGPUL no tilt followers. I chose yellow followers because I figure that it will make the mag easier to see if I drop it inadvertently after a mag change, and I'm not so tacticool that I need a seldom seen piece of kit to be an earth tone. Still hoping to find more 20 rounders, but with the prices on the used market being what they are, I might as well purchase new 20 round MAGPUL poly magazines.
