August 16th   Bug out trailer coming together…..

Worked hard today on the bug out trailer. Managed to use the deck wood to build up the sides as well as create sections which to store things and keep them in place/organized. Everything will be covered by tarps and tied down.

M has been helping organize some things specifically for the trailer. I asked her this morning to make a list of those things that she felt should be priority. She was kind of excited and I think proud that I asked for her opinion. She turned around and asked the boys their opinion as well – so everyone is involved.

Eric hasn’t been spending as much time around the house. He usually is walking the neighborhood helping others with their gardens and keeping people informed of things. He has really grown up and matured. Taking on the leadership of the Gardening Team did wonders for him. I am not sure where Eric is spending his evening hours as he is not coming home until after dark.

Talked to Karl tonight over the HAM for a few minutes. He said things are coming together with his neighbors. Told him I will stop by sometime within the next few days.
