SURVIVAL DAY 20 (EMERGENCY 3600 CALORIE FOOD BAR)

I like these Emergency 3600 Calorie Food Bars for a couple of reasons. The first is that they are relatively cheap, and I can buy a few when I need them. This means I can buy some for hiking or hunting trips, and if I lose them or just eat them because, quite honestly, these taste good, then I’m not super worried about it.

I wrap mine in a few paper towels, as I’ve learned that anything with a sharp edge can punch through the vacuum sealed package, and ruin what’s inside.

When it comes to those first few days of any emergency (regardless of whether its a hurricane or the zombie apocalypse), having a few Energy Bars could mean the difference between running out of steam and getting eaten, or making it to your Bolt Hole.

SURVIVAL DAY 19 (WINTER CAMO BIB OVERALL)

Should I be embarrassed that this set of Winter Camo Overalls is just one of three that I own? I have this set for cold weather, a forest green set for late fall/early winter, and a set in black that I rarely wear but that I bought for a ski trip – because wearing camo on the mountain seemed counter productive if I needed to be rescued – which had a high probability.

I wear my Winter Overalls when I’m shoving and shooting clays, and of course when I’m hunting.

When it comes to survival however, my Winter Overalls are a must have when moving outside in the cold weather. What good is surviving the zombie apocalypse if you draw attention to yourself and get devoured after having survived getting away from the population centers?

Stay as concealed as possible and your chances of surviving go up.

Workout Log & Weekly Weigh In # 3

Let’s start with the workout part. I decided to go back to my original, slow start, and then hold steady at 3.2 MPH after my last personal record breaking walk.

I broke my record, but wasn’t able to get on the treadmill for a few days, so I am hoping that going back to slow and steady will leave me able to walk tomorrow.

Those few days off from the treadmill hurt me when it came to my second subject, my weekly weigh in. I still lost a little weight, but not a pound from last week, which is what I was hoping.

Yes, I know that if you map out my overall progress, I’m still on track, but it feels like a small setback. My wife asked me why I post this stuff and I tried to explain to her that doing this keeps it on my radar, keeps it important, and makes me want to achieve my weekly goal. It motivates me to stay on keto so I can buy large shirts again instead of 2xl. It motivates e to lose the weight so I can maybe deal with my lower back better.

Don’t be offended, but I’m doing this for me.

SURVIVAL DAY 18 (BULK TOILETTE PAPER)

The real issue with Bulk Toilette Paper is space. Trust me when I say you want to stockpile Toilette Paper. When you can’t get to the store because of natural disasters (or the zombie apocalypse) the last thing you want to have to worry about is something as basic as Toilette Paper.

My wife thinks I’m strange because I buy Toilette Paper every time I go to the super store. I always have a spare package, but I can remember not having any TP in the house as kid. Once you have to collect napkins from fast food restaurants you will understand how important a stock pile of Toilette Paper really is.
