If you are serious about preparedness then it's time to get out of your armchair and start training and preparing. It will take some time and a lot of work, and you will have to spend a little money to get ready. But once you are on the road to preparedness you will start to get better nights of sleep, because you will know you have started to do something that will protect and provide for your family. Don't get stuck in the rut of simply studying and reading about survival. Unless the shelves in your pantry and garage are filling with supplies, and unless you are growing muscles and calluses then you are not preparing. You have to get out and use your skills of survival, and learn more skills to use for your survival. We have to remember that every skill we learn now is one more tool to use in our survival. And after the s**t hits the fan your skills and goods on hand will be the tools of life. When we have a skill that helps us to make a needed tool or item for survival this skill will be as good as or better than gold in life after the collapse. Your time is NOW to get ready!!! We have very little time, because the collapse is very near. Here is a place to start.....
Start a food and survival plan..... This is just a starting place!!!!
#1 Buy canned foods, dry rice, dry beans and cooking oil....NOW (buy what you eat now and get enough for 12-20 weeks make a meal planer and add extra)
#2 Get water and get a water filter with extra filters and know how to use it!!!!
#3 Build a First-Aid Kit and make it big and make it with needed items for your family.
#4 Get a camp stove and have lots and lots of fuel for it, Remember food with no way to cook it is just junk.
#5 Have light, like candles and oil lamps or camp lantern and have fuel for it.( And a way to light it!!)
My friends I tell you that our days are few and a collapse is very near. If your not ready I tell you to do all you can to get you and your family ready to survive this coming collapse.
