EPISODE-257 GETTING ALONG WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS AT YOUR BUGOUT LOCATION

Today’s episode is on getting along with your neighbors at your bugout location. this is very important if you ever have to use your bugout location in tough times Glen Tate addresses this in his book 299 days,but i actually hear about this very little in the prepping community so i figured i would talk about it on the show. I have some experience in this as i grew up in a small town (pop. 600ish) my whole life and have lived this. In some ways this is a very frustrating topic for me. I also try to give you some solutions on how to get along better with the locals at your bugout location. There is goung to be a part two looking at it from the bugout locations owner, so watch for that one too.

 

One thing i need to say though, i think i may have come off a little bitchy on this episode and thats not my intention. i think it was a mixture of having a bad day and a very aggravating topic. So if you are a person who has a remote bugout location don’t take this personally if your one of the good ones.

Also there is swearing in this one so don’t let the kiddos listen in . Don’t say i didn’t warn you…….
