I have two pair of Redwing boots and one of those haven't been worn other than to break them in. My boot situation is really good and like I said at 66 there isn't much chance of wearing out boots. Spares are in case I get some stolen. Add to that my other shoes and I should not ever go without good foot covering.

I really like the video, it's very informative and worth the time just so you can understand what it will take for a working man to keep his boots going in a time of crash.

My preps I rotate but I look at my longevity along with what I think will happen before refills. My plan is to trade for goods I need and I keep enough stock for that. Ammo I decided rather than leave a bunch for the enemy that kills me I am converting to buying bullets,powder and primers so they won't just leave with a huge pile of loaded rounds.

I don't want to leave a pile of ammo to be used to kill my neighbors. If I have time I will destroy my powder and primers.
