Whether you’re enjoying a camping trip near home, or on a vacation far away – spending time in local and national parks can be stress relieving and invigorating. In fact, a British study found that people who meandered through nature felt a boost of morale. This was in stark contrast with those that strolled in a shopping mall; their self-esteem actually plummeted.
Planning a camping trip doesn’t have to be challenging. However, knowing what camping style suits your family and becoming better prepared can allow for a more enjoyable time, and can even save your life.
April showers bring May flowers…as well as tornadoes. April and May are the peak tornado months in all fifty states, and it’s important to be prepared. Damage paths can be as vast as fifty miles long and one mile wide; causing massive infrastructure damage as well as fatalities. While advanced warning is becoming increasingly possible – some tornadoes develop so rapidly and even on clear skies with sunshine, making it a challenge to alert everyone on time.

So, our economy is tanking. The dollar is losing value. I
say, SO WHAT. Let the dollar drop and let the systems that have been empowered
by it, fall. Let’s face it. Political systems are not the problem here. The
people that have come and gone in offices of authority here in America and
abroad have simply fallen victim to the one thing that money has created in
society: GREED. And that greed is fed by the willingness of all the people of
the world every time they open their wallets. Every time you spend a dollar on ANYTHING, you are feeding a monster
that now threatens your way of life, your freedom, your personal choices, your
health, your environment, your very existence.
Think about this very hard for a moment. What would happen if the dollar collapsed?
