What Did You Do To Prep This Week

I awoke at 3:16 this morning with nearly unbearable pain in my right shoulder and chest, it’s eased off this morning but It’s still there but now more of a dull aching pain followed by sharp stabbing pains in the right side of my chest when I breathe deeply.

I’m going to go get it checked out at the emergency room – I think it’s chest wall pain and inflammation both of which I’ve been diagnosed with in the past. An EKG found nothing wrong with my heart. I’ll let you know, later today…

In the meantime please let us know what you did to prep this week in the comments below…

Update: According to the Doctors it is Costochondritis (chest wall pain) and inflammation in the shoulder joint – thank you all for your great comments and concern for my well-being, you’re great and I appreciate it very much.:-)

I’m going to relax and try to get some sleep. Goodnight everyone.

    This week I retrieved my machete. Started designs for converting my pick up truck to run on wood gas.made a small pole arm. Began work on a small fallout shelter, it’s an earthen bunker. Practised starting a fire after a thunder storm (without a knife or axe or previously fabricated tinder) Sharpened some tools. Read more on TEOTWAWKI related subjects. And Identified a secondary bug out location.

  3. Have ordered a 1000 gal propane tank to replace my 500 gal. only costs about $25 a year more to lease. Am putting in a hand pump in my well so water will be taken care of. Am going to buy a solar battery charger and a couple of more deep cycle batteries. I was givin a tip by a friend that is a missionary in some backward countries. He said all the people use Trojan batteries he said they last much longer and holb their charge better the the usual (costco, etc) do. They are expensive though. Not sure the trade off is worth it.
