Let Me Ask You a Question, Part 1

“Does ANYONE ELSE out there know the significance of September 13?” September 13, 2015 marks the last day of the latest, year-long, Shemitah (God’s seven year cycles that go back to the Old Testament.) See Leviticus 25:1-4 and Deut. 15:1-2. Shemitahs are a sign of judgment based on the covenant (and relationship) with God. If the people […]

Don’t Throw That Away!

First, find yourself a tall, clean garbage can, hamper (old or new), or other container big enough to hold a lot of worn-out towels, sheets, t-shirts, pillowcases, etc. Instead of throwing them away, recycle them! I’ve been building up a supply for probably over 25 years in an old hamper that belonged to my grandma and I’ve actually used them for […]

Mix It Up!

Far too often, I tend to think in only one direction, like there’s only one way to do something. Such as a Go-Bag.  To me, a pack needs everything from A-Z, nothing less – nothing more.  When there’s too many items in a bag, the pack’s too heavy to carry. Too few items and your pack isn’t complete in emergencies. Recently, I was talking […]

MIA

I bet, by now, you might think I’ve been Missing In Action! I have been. It dawned on me that if I want you to be fully prepared for whatever might come, I should be, too. You’ve heard it before “Do as I say, not as I do (or don’t do.”) Talk is cheap but putting […]

POWER TIP #11 – ONE AWESOME IDEA!

The movie, The Day After Tomorrow, was released in 2004. It’s a fictional account of a father and son (along with others) surviving an unbelievable ice storm, primarily “on location” in New York City. While watching the movie, I picked up on a survival tip that totally makes sense. At one point in the movie, the climatologist father […]

Body Ready

I’m pretty certain that most of the people reading this right now are in pretty good shape. You eat right. You work out. Get plenty of sleep. And, you are disciplined in every way possible. Kudos to you if you are. One of my biggest regrets is that I wasn’t serious about exercise when I […]

Power Tip #10 – Keep It Simple

Prepping shouldn’t be all that complicated. Yes, it’s important to plan ahead and acquire all the things you need to survive for a period of time, but many have the tendency to do more or buy more than they need to. Acquire knowledge and be thorough in your preparations, but keep it simple. For example: […]

Bartering… the Great Exchange!

A possible real scenario not too far down the road: “Things are really dire right now. Money is virtually useless because store shelves are empty and banks have closed their doors. Despite all I’ve done to prepare for the worst, there are some things I lack, partly because I didn’t correctly estimate amounts, and partly because different scenarios require […]

Did You Know?

3.7 million is an impressive number! It’s the number of people who call themselves “Prepper” in the United States. Yes, just in the United States! Their reasons for prepping will be varied but the ultimate goal is the same: to be ready for anything and everything life sends their way! Now tell me, with 3.7 […]

Power Tip #9 – ICE

Just heard this great idea … Right now, put ICE in your phone’s contact list. This stands for “In Case of Emergency” and will be so helpful to emergency responders or emergency room attendees. They have been trained to look for this information.  Once you’ve put ICE in as a contact, type in (on the […]
