What did you do to prep this week…

Well here we are again, a week late, but that’s life, sometimes things come up as it did last week and I couldn’t post this segment on time. However, looking at the bright side you all should have a lot of preps to talk about this week.

Some of you have asked about an update on my terminally ill father so I’ll get to that before we get started with the post…

He decided to not take the chemo treatments and I agree with his decision. He has stage four terminal cancer that started in his colon and has spread out to his liver, lungs and kidneys. At that stage chemo is just a way for the chemo/cancer doctor to make enough money to buy another new home or sports car from the insurance payments being made to him for his “service” and they know this.

They want to give you false hope, knowing full well that all it’s going to do is make what time that the person has left worse while curing nothing.

But I digress, so far he is doing good with no noticeable signs of the cancer progressing, and he is still living on his own. If he had started the chemo like they wanted I’m sure that he would have been far worse by now. I’ve seen it too many times, diagnosed with cancer, chemo doctor comes in… take these treatments and you’ll live another twenty years.

Then they start treatment and soon their hair falls out, they are deathly sick all of the time, they lose most of their weight turning into bones with skin and then they are dead in four months or less.

Yes, if the cancer is caught early then modern medicine can help a lot and can even cure the cancer, however at stage four where it’s spread all throughout the body I have very little faith in it helping any. At that stage treatment is a money gimmick plain and simple.

And yes, everyone is different and none of this should be considered as medical advice. If you or someone you know is diagnosed with cancer or any other illness you should seek medical help and discuss your treatment options with your doctor and your family.

Okay, now what did I do to prep this week…

Lot’s of work around my home/homestead/survival retreat… I have a guy coming next week to replace my retaining wall. I’d do it myself but I don’t have the time, and since I’ve never done it or have the forms to pull the concrete I think that I’ll get by cheaper by hiring someone with tools and experience to do it.

I’ve been writing up my to-do-list and have over 20 things listed… now if I can find the time and money to get it all done that would be great. If you love this site or even just like it a little then help me out by using my Amazon.com affiliate link (also look for it in the top of the right sidebar) every time that you shop at Amazon.com. It will cost you NOTHING extra when you order whatever it was that you were going to order anyways and I’ll get still get a small commission from your order.

This week I also…

Ordered Mr Beams MBN356 Networked LED Wireless Motion Sensing Spotlight System with NetBright Technology, 200-Lumens, Brown, 6-Pack and Mr. Beams MBN3000 NetBright 500 Lumen High Performance Wireless Battery Powered Motion Sensing LED Dual Head Security Spotlight (2 Pack).

Well, folks that’s it for me this week… what about you… what did you do to prep this week?

Scientists Warn: Deadly Ancient Pathogens Melting Out Of Ice In The Arctic Could Wipe Out Human Population

In July of 2016 the Russian government deployed bio-warfare teams to the Arctic after reports that some 1,200 reindeer and 40 people had been infected with a rapidly spreading virus. The story received little attention, but it showed without a shadow of a doubt that something dangerous is lurking below the Arctic’s permafrost. As it turns out, the contagion was identified as a strain of Bacillus Anthracis, more commonly known as Anthrax, and was believed to have been released into the wildlife and human population after warmer temperatures melted the ice.

Scientists and government officials now say that the Arctic Anthrax outbreak is a warning to the human population, and that continued warming of the climate could lead to deadlier, rapidly spreading viruses that have long been believed to be extinct.

Prepper Knowledge Gleaned from Disaster Movies

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.

A Preppers Guide to Flooding

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?

If Prepping Isn’t Fun Then You’re Doing it Wrong!

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!

Surviving Vehicular Terrorism

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.

Okay, what did I do to prep this week…

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?
