One of the best ways to consider how to respond to a disaster without actually experiencing it is to watch Disaster Movies and make plans based on your observations. I’ve been watching disaster movies for years and I have lots of ideas to share with the group.
It’s one of those days – I thought that you all might enjoy this video.
Although it may not be the apocalypse, flooding is a serious threat to many areas of the world. Floods can come unexpectedly and wreak havoc quickly so it is important to be as well prepared as possible for them. They can just as easily be caused by adverse weather conditions, such as the floods in the UK over the last couple of years, or unexpected accidents such as a burst dam. But how do you prepare for the unexpected?
Well folks, here we are again. I know that I’m glad to be here and since you’re reading this you must be too and that’s great. The Wolf Pack is now at over 25,000 members/subscribers strong – The Wolf Pack is a loose-knit prepper group whose mission is to share information that will help members plan for, prepare, and survive man-made and natural disaster.
To become a member of the pack all you need to do is subscribe to our newsletter (you’ll receive members-only content) and be an active prepper. We just want active preppers as members. If you’re not an active prepper or at the least planning to start actively prepping immediately then please do not join our group.
Are you a yo-yo prepper?
Do you prep when times are bad and then stop as soon as you think that things just might get a little better? If you do then you’re what is known to us dedicated survivalist’s aka “preppers” as a yo-yo prepper. You’re in and you’re out and then maybe in a few months you’re back in again.
With this sort of back and forth, in and out, it should be no mystery to you why you never really get anything done or really get prepared for whatever is coming.
I think that the main reason for this yo-yo prepping style is that to those would be preppers prepping just isn’t fun. But, prepping should be fun, it should get you excited if not then guess what… you’re doing it wrong!
CNN reports that a man in Berlin used a truck to plow through a group of people at a Christmas market, killing 9 and injuring 50 more. The tractor-trailer appeared to deliberately ram through several stalls at what is estimated to be 40 miles per hour; German authorities are treating the incident, at present, as a terror event.
The attack appears to parallel the cargo truck killing of 86 people and the wounding of 434 others in Nice, France during a fireworks display on a national holiday. On a smaller scale, a Somali student at Ohio State University recently ran down a number of people before leaving his car and stabbing several others with a large knife. A pattern seems to be emerging where a vehicle is used to cause casualties in public spaces.
Well, folks here we are again! Another week of prepping and only six more days until Obama leaves office and Trump takes over. It’s going to be an interesting time, and I’m glad Hillary didn’t get it for sure, but I’m still uneasy and prepping harder… in fact, I’ve been doubling down on my preps…
Something big is going to happen… I can feel it… get off your butt and do something if you’re not already. Time to prep is short, please take advantage of the small amount of extra time that the election of Donald J Trump has provided us with.

As you can see it was a good week for me – doubling down on my preps now because I’m expecting more people to show up – they will bring their own food and weapons but it dosen’t hurt to have extra.
What about you? What did you do to prep this week?
The title may seem a bit odd, since we generally think of the very first thing when we begin to perform any task; but, the first step anyone takes in a prepping adventure, is to come to the realization that the world is and always has been an uncertain place, and that having a base set of knowledge, skills, physical resources and the correct positive attitude, is a necessary thing to do for your own safety and peace of mind as well as your loved ones. It is said that you can lead a horse to water; but, you can’t make him drink, and I suspect most of us have had this same type of thoughts when we try to convince others that prepping is smart and even necessary, often to even have the person agree, and promptly ignore us.
In the prepping community, we often see the term, TEOTWAWKI, or The End OF The World As We Know It, with the important part being the last 4 words, As We Know It. This term to some often conjures up visions of a global nuclear war, or an asteroid impact, creating that Zombie Apocalypse.
