I thought I would quickly say “happy Easter” and hope you have a safe and fun day today. Though my kids no longer believe in the Easter Bunny, they’ll have plenty of chocolate-filled eggs to hunt and even got to color a few hard-boiled eggs too…
The folks at ArmageddonOnline.org wrote me and said they’ve updated their library links (mentioned previous here) to 954 files… I didn’t try to count them. Here’s the link if you like: http://www.armageddononline.org/disaster-prep-help.html
Remember that being prepared is every bit about protecting yourself and family from “everyday” problems like credit card and identity theft as it is about being prepared for the next hurricane to roll through your town. Just yesterday I read an article that discussed what to do if your credit card is stolen and it got me to wondering how useful credit card “secure sleeves” such as those made by Identity Stronghold and others really are. If you’re unaware, these sleeves are designed to stop RFID skimmers from being able to read credit card numbers while it’s still in your wallet or purse,
Looks like my friend, Coach David Alexander, has chosen to offer his 2-disc set “How to Kill With Your Hands” to us normal people. I had a chance to review it (he briefly offered it on YouTube). Fortunately, he’s now offering it in a variety of formats but the biggest point is that he’s selling it at a good discount here: http://coachdavidalexander.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/2-disc-how-to-kill-with-your-hands-dvd-is-ready-to-ship/. I’ve ordered mine already and I suggest that YOU do so as well. Your ability to truly defend yourself and your family cannot be overstated!
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, especially about how I approach prepping. I’ve been re-thinking many things I do, from how I ensure I’m not neglecting things or better use of checklists and one area that I’ve been on the fence about is the DIY aspect of prepping… until recently.
Now, I’ll be among the first to tell you to “knock yourself out” if you want to tackle a

Apparently today is “world water day” and I was asked to mention this infographic on Why Plumbers are Heroes. Spend 30 seconds and read the infographic; it’s an eye-opening reminder about how important clean water is to our health. In fact, I’m reminded of a quote that went something like “we owe our health more to our plumber than to our doctor” and maybe that’s a true statement. So, say “thanks” the next time your plumber is at your house charging you $125 an hour to fix a leaky faucet… it’s for the

ArmageddonOnline.org contacted me a few days back and pointed out they had a huge library of survival books (PDF files) and other manuals that you may want to bookmark… and I thought I had a lot of files to share! FYI, I had trouble opening these files in my browser (it could just be my problem) but it appears you can download them and view in Adobe Acrobat or Reader.
This is an open letter to all non-preppers (aka, “normal” people) who may have unfortunate and mis-guided beliefs about what preppers are and are not. I’ve done this in list format for easier debunking.
Preppers: Please choose to forward this to any non-preppers if you like.
Non-Preppers: Please feel free to open your mind for a few minutes and reconsider who we are…
1. All Prepper are Outdoorsmen
I can’t tell you how many people seem to equate prepping to being a wilderness survivalist, expert, or enthusiast. Heck, even my mother thought
If you’re interested in joining me, my exercise routine starts today. I’ll post about how gruelling it was each Sunday (and maybe on Thursday as a mid-week break) and hope you choose to join in. Remember, it doesn’t have to be anything strenuous, even a walk around the block or getting out in the garden are great ways to get active. Apparently, I’m not the only person thinking about fitness: this post from yesterday on Fit to Survive? Don’t Be the Weakest Link mentions the need to be healthy

I’ve decided that I’m going to suck it up and start exercising again. I realized that after getting winded so quickly several times over pushing snow during our last two snow storms, this was ridiculous. Granted, I’ve never been in the best of shape but certainly not THAT bad!
So, I intend on spending the next 90 days (roughly all of Spring) getting a bit healthier. Needless to say, you should ensure you’re healthy enough to start an exercise program by consulting your doctor first… there’s my disclaimer.
Now, I don’t have any concrete exercise program I’ll follow. Heck, I’ll
