Power Tip #7 – Gas Tank Wisdom

Never let your gas tank get below half full. If there is an evacuation and you have to get out of town quickly, being short on gas could spell disaster.

There is a Distinct Rumbling

Can You Hear It? Can You Feel It? It started a very, very long time ago and throughout much of that time, it has escalated ever so subtly and slowly that we’ve become desensitized to the warnings. It’s the result of a fallen world and we’re going to soon see the hand of God move as we […]

Hamwiches

Create a Space

For a lot of people, there’s no problem storing prepping items. Some have relatively empty basements and others might have extra, unused bedrooms or closets.

Power Tip #5 – Plan Ahead

Talk to your family NOW should anything happen and communications are cut off later on. Decide on a meeting place if that is possible and educate yourselves on back-up ways to communicate, such as shortwave radios, ham radios, or long distant walkie-talkies. Chances are you won’t find walkie-talkies that will go the distance you need, but as in […]
