Late or not, the gift of survival is always on time if it’s before the Zombie Apocalypse right?
I’m always late on getting people gifts but I try to get them the most useful thing I can think of. When it comes to fathers, there are the ones who read, ones who like technology, ones who like guns and weapons and ones who like sports, right? There are probably other kinds but I don’t know many fathers, so that was my best general list for this purpose.
For at least those four kinds of fathers, there are several great survival tools for Father’s Day that would be perfect.
Nothing makes a guy feel more confident in a disaster than being prepared. The feeling of being ready for anything and having the right tools for the job will suppress the urge to panic and heighten alertness and the 5 senses.
