Preparedness Frisbees and Ponchos for Teens at Christmas!

Just a couple of thoughts that have been running around in my mind.

One area of preparedness that I think is often overlooked when a person is putting together emergency a way to have fun.  If you wind up confined to your home....or an evacuee facing a long term camping situation...what a boon it would be to have something fun to do!  A simple deck of cards...a doll for a child...a tennis ball...etc...could really brighten spirits...and help to pass the time.

Personally...I love throwing a frisbee!  I am admittedly a bit of a frisbee snob...and find lesser quality frisbees to be more aggravating than enjoyable.  I like the heavier frisbees made for ultimate frisbee.  The good ones fly long and true.  Of course you can't go wrong with a discraft frisbee....the official disc of the Ultimate Players Association!  Frisbees also serve a double purpose in that they can be used as a plate!

Next topic...

I teach an early morning religion class to high school kids.  I have noticed that not a single one of them ever wears a rain jacket!!  It could be pouring rain...and they will be wearing sweats.  That may be fine if they are indoors all day...but what if they get stuck outside.  I guess there is a sense of security that there will always be a shelter available somewhere and a place to get warm.  Perhaps a good stocking stuffer...or at least something to stick in their backpack is one of those cheap dollar store fold up ponchos.  They might look at you funny...but they may well appreciate it when the day comes that they need it.

Perhaps your shopping is already done.  If it isn' might consider getting some of what people need and hopefully want...things like preparedness frisbees and ponchos...the things that will help sustain those you care for through crisis!

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that
    you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that,
    this is great blog. An excellent read. I will certainly
    be back.
