Coronavirus Infects Stock Market: Part LXI
You know, as Your Survival Guy, I’m the guy who gets into tough situations only to discover how ill-prepared I am. You know, like when my backyard almost burned down when a tree landed on telephone wires, breaking the pole at the top, sending the distribution transformer, aka “pole pig” (filled with coils and oil ) crashing to the ground right next to one of our prehistoric trees about the size of King Kong that was ready to burn like the torch on the Statue of Liberty.
As the fire department descended upon our property, Your Survival Guy quickly learned he was no longer in control. Not a good feeling. And so, because of that, prevention is YSG’s best medicine. You’ll note, if you visit me in Newport, that there are no longer any power lines in the air as I spent a pretty penny putting them six feet under, covered with concrete like a ‘good fella.’ (You can read all about that Sunday afternoon here.)
If you read about our recent ski vacation in Telluride, then you know we rented an oxygen concentrator to help prevent (or recover faster from) altitude sickness. It worked beautifully.
“Why should I care, Survival Guy?” you may be asking yourself.
Well, you and I know the terrible outcome of a ventilator from the China virus. It’s just not good. You want to avoid it at all costs. But, as I know, a really nice, comfortable way to receive pure oxygen is through your nose with regular breathing from an oxygen concentrator like the one we rented in Telluride. That is why I decided to buy one for my family.
Will we need it? I hope not. Will it help if we do need it? I don’t know. Is getting oxygen to your lungs important? Yes, and this makes it easier.
Let’s say you don’t want to fork over a grand quite yet, or you can’t get one because supplies are low. Consider getting some oxygen canisters. I buy Boost Oxygen canisters from Walmart. Real easy. They’re the size of a water bottle, and you can pack them in your bug out bag.
Think of a concentrator as your own natural spring of pure oxygen that will last forever, and Boost Oxygen as a quick and easy way to get it. For me both are excellent as a preventive measure and worth every penny, because you and I know how quickly life can change.
