Well, folks, it’s time for another what did you do to prep this week. I hope everyone has done something prep wise this week… Remember the more the better but even little things count.
I had a reader email me a few days ago telling that he had been prepping for a few months and had done a lot prep wise but wasn’t sure where to go from there, he asked what my suggestions were for taking his preps to the next level.
I told him to cut off his power, water, phone, and to not go to the store or buy anything for two weeks. I told him that by doing so any holes in his preps would become obvious. I told him to take notes, and write every detail down regarding what he needed, substitutions made etc.
I told him that at the end of the two weeks, he will have a personal and much better list of preps, gear and skills to learn than I or anyone else could suggest because everyone is different as is their situation and thus their needs are different.
So if you feel like you’re at that point where you’ve been prepping for awhile and are not really sure where to go from where you are now, then cut off all utilities and don’t go shopping or buy anything for two weeks and it will be axiomatic what you need to do next.
Okay, what else… Oh, yea, I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to get our email newsletter subscriber numbers up to 25,000 by the end of the month, well yesterday we added over 200 new subscribers to our newsletter so we are off to a good start.
But I digress, what did I do to prep this week… bought some tools… tools are always a good prep…
Ordered three of the One Month Food Packs from Augason Farms these will be given as Christmas gifts to three different people that I know who are “on the fence” when it comes to prepping. Hopefully, the gift will get them started.
I also ordered ten copies of Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath to give to others this Christmas – I only give books to folks that I know will read them.
Another favorite gift is the Morakniv Companion Fixed Blade Outdoor Knife and I ordered ten of these, also for Christmas gifts.
My Christmas shopping is now almost done… YEs!
Well folks, that’s it for me this week… what about you… what did you do to prep this week?
