Before we start with todays, super-duper “what did you do to prep this week” blog segment, I would like to give a shout-out and a big thank you to Ben B for his generous donation this week via the U.S. postal service, (Ben, download Firefox and that will fix the problem that you mentioned), I would also like to thank Linda C, Michael A, Jodi J, Charles P, Jeff H, and Nanci Q for their support via PayPal Donations this week. Thank you all very much.
Wow! We’ve had a heated discussion about the government shutdown this week in the comments of a couple of posts, with most people remaining polite and not resorting to name calling, and we all appreciate that.
But, to be honest, I was surprised by a few of the folks commenting – by reading their comments, it’s obvious that they are employed by the federal government, are in deep debt, living from payday to payday and do not have their preps in order.
I just hope that those folks, see this as a warning and work to better position themselves for when the government really does “shutdown” long-term. Because this is only a very small sample of what is coming within the next year or two at most, then you’ll be looking back and thinking about this government “shutdown” as the good-old-days.
Find another means (or a back-up) of employment (learn a marketable skill or trade), downsize and get out of debt, cut spending, and get your preps in order (you don’t have to be rich to be prepared) – read my book “31 days to survival“ where I show you, how to be better prepared, than 95% of the population, while spending only a couple of thousand dollars on preps.
Okay, let me see what did I do to prep this week…
- Deep-mulched my raised beds with a 4-6 inch layer of straw over top of a 1-2 inch layer of compost.
- Organized my prep storage area (a 20X20 foot building)
- Bought a 3M Professional Faceshield
- Received the Crosman 1322 Air Pistol that I ordered.
- Received the Guntec USA Gen II Oversized Extended Latch For Charging Handle that I ordered.
- Added a Nikon ProStaff 3-9 x 40 Black Matte Riflescope (BDC) to my Smith & Wesson M&P10.
Well folks, that’s it for me this week… what about you? What did you do to prep this week?
