On January 1, 2018, I’ll be giving away a new Mora Bushcraft survival knife to one lucky subscriber. Winner will be chosen by random drawing and will be notified by email as well as announced on this site. If you’ve not subscribed (if you’re not a subscriber then you can not win) yet, then you can subscribe here.
If you want to see photos of my area, my preps, and other random stuff then you can do that at my Instagram page and don’t forget to follow the page so that you never miss a new photo. You can also scroll down to the bottom of the sidebar to see my nine most recent photos.
I’d like to welcome our newest advertiser SHTF and Go – go over and take a look at what they have to offer and don’t forget to let them know that you saw their ad here at TheSurvivalistBlog.net.
One more thing before we get started with today’s “what did you do to prep this week” post – by now I’m sure you have noticed the new blog format. If not then go get your eyes checked and then come back and take a look. Okay, what do you think? The goal of the changes was to make it easier for you to read and to get rid of some of the distractions that were present in the previous site layout.
Preps this week amounted to a lot of planning, mostly because I’m broke, but that’s okay because without planning there is no prepping. Planning is essential to prepping while at the same time not wasting money and time on stuff that you don’t really need and or on things that you don’t need to do. Isn’t that right Ohio Prepper?
Most of my plans have centered around home/retreat security. What I’ve come up with and plan to implement when my finances allow are listed below. Let me know what you think…
Add window security film to all of my first-floor basement windows first and then to the second story windows as I get the funds to do so… Also, I’m planning to add window security bars to the windows in the first-floor basement. No one sleeps downstairs and there are two other ways out in case of fire – however, the lower half of my house is made of concrete and the siding on the whole house is fiber cement siding so fire isn’t much of an issue (which is one of the main reasons that I bought the house).
This week I also bought 500 rounds of .223 ammo and some random first-aid stuff and started reading the book Secret Livestock of Survival: How to Raise The 10 Best Choices For Retreat And Homestead Livestock by Rick Austin. Great book, great ideas, a must if you plan on including domestic livestock in your long-term preparedness plans and you should.
Well, folks, that’s it for me this week… what about you. Yes, you! What did you do to prep this week?
