  3. Expect the Unexpected!

    Nutritious food and clean water are two basic necessities for human life.  Have you thought about the importance of food storage?  Throughout my whole life I never considered keeping more food stored than I immediately needed, or even a survival pack with first aid kid just in case.  In terms of the unpredictability of our world today, I started deciding...

  8. Pirate Ships

Nope, it is just some unethical folks that enslave fishermen and then fish in territorial waters of other countries, taking much more than is allowed by even locals.
