Chuck’s latest Survival Tool

“Think about the planet, man!” This seems to be Chuck’s latest tag line because we see it in a few strips lately. Well, at least he’s trying. Yet it once again looks like he is not quite as good at it as he thinks he is in his mind. As for the actual survival tool Chuck is holding: I have used it. I am not sure how long it would work in an actual survival situation but in theory it is not a bad idea. It may just be a gimmick that’s fun to play with.

I am not a prepper by all means but I do have a few things in place to prevent me from getting caught with my pants down and survive a week or two should the power go out for an extended time. It always amazes me how many people have no water at home and don’t even carry cash in a country that has a long track record for big disasters like hurricanes, fires, earthquakes and such…

    I live in Southeast Louisiana and a veteran of many a major hurricane in my 55 years. I even got caught in Hurricane Camille while on a family vacation in Mississippi! You would be surprised how many people down here wait until the last minute to be prepared.

    Heh, I lived in the N.O. area for 20 years, and Magnoire understates the case. There are folks down there who never prepare and if they go last minute, their last minute prep is idiotic.
    Glad to have left the area, though I miss the food (~_^).

    It’s no better up here in NJ. Folks here wait until the last minute to prep for heavy snow and for tropical storms. Whichever it is, the day before they go crazy buying generators, milk, bread, and beer.
