Is it bad that I wish some of these things would happen ?
 
I wish my mobile devices were gone most days , including land line , mobile phone, Computers , automobiles and some other stuff would go away .
I wish it would go primitive for about 5 + days so people would actually come to grips with what could very well happen and get them selves more prepared . I think a few days like this would bring people and neighborhoods together closer and learn how to help each other with their different skills and know how . Im not a huge prepper guy but Im prepared to take care of m family for a while , I dont have a bug out place, I dont have stuff stashed other places,no underground bunkers or facilities, .
I once went to Minnesota on a 9 day primitive trip took enough food and water for a couple days and then had to live off of what I caught and trust me I ate alot of fish . I had a blast I never worried about not having food because I caught fish and turtles the whole time I was there . I had a canoe and that was my way around the lake to fish . Water was never a issues as I stayed next to a lake , it rained 3 of my 9 days , and yes after 3 solid days of down pour everything becomes wet . I still had a blast , and not a care in the world to be honest with you . I would like to go do it again some day and get back to what this world should really be like . My kids and grand kids will never experience some of that stuff as they were brought up in the electronics world . Where do the days go now ?

I wish cellphones would disappear forever. People are entirely too tied up in being connected 24 hours a day. It's like people are too afraid to be alone with their thoughts for awhile.

To bring back the days, when you talked to a jackass or mule he knew which way to turn....................:eek:;):D

Wait for a serious hurricane, flood, or similar natural event; it's less fun when it isn't voluntary, especially in the Summer. Fans are an awesome sleep aid, strictly freakin awesome.

It's not my thoughts that bother me, it's the thoughts of the other voices in this head.

I often wish we could go back to a simpler time. I am tied to my cell phone and laptop. I can't do business without them. People bother me 24/7. I even get customers calling me while I am on vacation. I tell them I am on vacation and they don't care. People are so selfish!

This is why I love camping.
