Is Prepping Success Kinda Like The X-Files?

But, “they” don’t want you to find it.

Those two sentences sum up the Fox hit show, The X-Files. Mulder and Scully, out there in a search for the truth. There were always hidden truths and inside men protecting that truth from average folks on the outside.

It seems to be human nature to suspect hidden truths or that we are being kept out of the loop or inner circle. That human nature also bleeds over into the field of survival planning. How do I know?

Recently, I’ve gotten several emails from readers asking me for the secret to being prepared for any disaster. They assume something more complicated is going on than there is. That I’m keeping secrets or hidden truths for myself.

What did you do to prep this week?

Do they know something that the rest of us do not? There are tens of millions of ordinary Americans that are feeling really good about the future now that Donald Trump has won the election, but meanwhile the elite are feverishly constructing luxury bunkers at a pace unlike anything we have ever seen before. So why are so many among the elite preparing for an imminent “apocalypse” when tens of millions of other Americans are anticipating a new era of peace and prosperity? Are they smarter than most of the rest of us, or are they simply being paranoid?

Merry Christmas From

We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and blessings this day celebrating the birth of our lord Jesus Christ. Stay safe my friends and keep prepping because the new year is going to be interesting and I have a few major predictions that I’m putting into an article that will be published here next week.

If after opening presents and eating Christmas dinner you get bored and need something to read then I suggest that you look over and read articles that interest you from this massive list of free prepper information.

What did you do to prep this week?

This week I bought three more of the metal shelving units at the local Walmart that I’m using to expand my food storage to provide for more people over a longer period.

Put up more pegboard in my garage to hang more tools and stuff as a prepper you can’t have too many tools and stuff – a good book on prepper tools is Tools for Survival: What You Need to Survive When You’re on Your Own.

And the big purchase this week… well I traded a shotgun and gave some money… was a Semi-Auto Colt M4.

Well, folks, it’s that time again… you know where you use an anonymous name to tell others what you did to prep this week, thereby giving them ideas and encouragement to further their own preps. And that’s the goal to become a little better prepared each week so that you will be as prepared as possible when the balloon goes up, bursts or whatever.

I think that moving the segment to that day will work out great. What do you think? Before we get started with what […]

Prepping for Your Dog

In the rush of prepping for your family, don’t forget the canine members (and other pets) of your family! I will be writing about dogs, much of this same information will apply to cats and other pets. I have owned and cared for dogs all my life, owned a boarding kennel, taught obedience classes and trained service dogs, I was a retail sales clerk in a pet department, and was a groomer. I will try to cover things in a practical manner for you.

The first thing to consider is food. There are a couple of ways to approach this. You can buy and save commercial dog food for your dog. Or they can eat what you eat, in which case you want to make sure you buy for “another person”.


An Alternative Way To Prepping… For The Frugal Minded

Many of us want to be prepared as much as possible when the crap hits the fan. A favorite and another practical method of obtaining items that may of be of such interest, is visiting your local recycling center. I have been making frequent visits (every 7-14 days)to a local recycling center for the last 5 plus years. I was and still am amazed at what items end up there. Some of these items can be very useful and others you may want to just to pick them up for a resale.I have

I have found by selling a few of my finds it is a good way to help subsidize your other purchases. Or just hang on to them for bartering items down the road. Scrap prices do fluctuate and depending what the item is made out of, will be a factor when purchasing. But typically all my purchases are around five to ten cents on the dollar of what the item would cost elsewhere. Except for scrap, I pay around twice what they pay out. Keeping in mind that this article is more about acquiring and not on construction or refurbishing items.
