All around us we are experiencing more slides, more earth moving beneath our feet, more rain and now our road is washed out completely. We can still GET out to go to town but we NOW cant go the other direction where we spend the majority of our time gathering resources we RELY on like our wood and hunting and foraging!! THIS is huge for us.
Or to only have enough for a year?
What about even storing extra wood somewhere else? Sounds novel but what happens if THAT road too is caved in!!! HA! The irony of it all right!
OUR wood supply is on the other side of this road! THAT could be a disaster for our homestead. BUT because MR Hilder is prepared and sees into the future we have years worth of wood!
Same with the food. The pantry is stocked with the venison and bear meat we have hunted over the years. The jars are filled with my foraging efforts from the precious seasons of berry picking and gathering!
So look at this as yet another great learning opportunity!
