Hello everyone. I live outside of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. I’m looking to meet other people who prep in my state. I grew up in the country and in some of our wonderful rivers and waterways. I have had a hard time finding people or groups locally who prep. I’m interested in hearing what others are doing locally. I plan on going back into the basin where I know how to live off the land.
I hope no one else has lost anything in this flood 2016 but me on here. I lost just about everything. I want to remind everyone that your brain is your best survival tool. I see so many who aren’t thinking right now. They are getting mad and not talking to others like they should and pull together. Some of it is from being overwhelmed and some of it is greed. When your in a survival situation its not having one person in charge as much as it is having everyone work together that’s going to get you through it. I am saying this from first hand knowledge. During this epic flood I spend 4 days on this little island of land that stayed out the water in French settlement. We had 28 people there over 30 dogs chickens all over the yard and when the cattle broke through a fence to get to higher ground we had to deal with cattle. We never had a fight or argument there. because we all worked together and discussed things. So remember that its your brain that’s your best survival tool. Stay calm and think things out, not over think. Talk and find understanding and help each other. A good heart and a calm head can do a lot towards how well you survive because you may want too survive but why just survive if you can survive better by working as a group
