Okay, let me see… what did I do to prep this week? Unfortunately, not a lot…
This week I spent most of my time and resources getting my truck worked on and repaired. Toyota trucks are some of the most reliable vehicles on the road, and mine has over 230,000 miles but like everything else parts do wear out, and need to be repaired. New brakes, valve pan gaskets, new hoses, front and rear differential fluid change, oil change and I’m out nearly $400 bucks.
But the old Toyota is my main form of transportation and hauls a lot of stuff, from hay, to building materials, and would serve as my “bug out vehicle” if needed, but I don’t plan on going anywhere, and the only way, that I’m leaving here is in a body bag – I’m making my stand here… no retreat, no surrender.
Besides the repairs and maintenance to my truck, I did the normal stuff around my place, i.e. gardening and yard work. I also ordered a copy of Ragnar Bensons new book Survival End Game for review. Ragnar has to be at least 90 years old, and to be honest I thought that he had stopped writing, then bam another book…
Well that’s it for me… How about you? What did you do to prep this week? Let us know in the comments below…
