What's YOUR game plan?

Every good coach takes his team into a game prepared. They make a game plan.
They map out what plays they will use and what circumstances will make them change their plan.
They have options mapped out. Plan A, Plan B, Plan C and so on.

Now, do YOU have a *game plan* in place?
If forced to evacuate?
If you have to hunker down and stay in place in the event of a crisis?
Have you planned for the future...near future, mid-range and far future?

I realized recently that my own *game plan* was sorely lacking.
"Plan A" was okay, but my mid and long range future plans were a bit on the *fuzzy* side.
Okay, my long term future game plan was WAY fuzzy!

This week, that changes.
I have started a loose-leaf binder and within it's pages--some printed, some hand written--my game plan will come together.

One section will focus on Emergency/Crisis Procedures.
One section on Food Storage.
One section will be my mid range plans.
One section on Long range plans.
I already have a loose leaf binder for First Aid (I strongly suggest everyone have this!) It includes a list of all the first aid supplies I have, how and when to use them, etc.

My long range plans include having a homestead of my very own. I am quite sure of what I want to have, etc.
However, without a concrete plan, it will turn out to be nothing but a pipe dream!
I have the skills and knowledge to live on a homestead and operate it. I have lived and worked on farms before.
Within two weeks, I will have my *game plan* on paper. Having it on paper will help me focus and work towards my goals.

Wish me luck on working on my game plan...and make sure to work on your own!

Because of a couple of rude people that left comments that included links to porn pages and such, I have been forced to start moderating comments again.
