208-237-5985. That was the phone number of one of my best guy friends in Junior High School.  208-237-2845. That was the phone number of my best girlfriend in my 8th and 9th grade years of school.  614-488-1181. That was the phone number of my dad’s pool installment company, Foxx Pools when I was 6 and 7 years old.  My address during my last 2 years in high school—some nearly 30 years ago, was 620 Vancouver Drive in Westerville, Ohio. At any given time I had more than 100 phone numbers and...

Recently, there was a fire in an industrial area of Phoenix.  It was a huge fire, and it required over 100  Fire Fighters to respond.  There were explosions and thick black smoke that was seen from all over the valley.  This fire was near two very heavily traveled freeway overpasses.  Traffic was flowing normally  when the fire broke out.  That quickly changed as the smoke became so thick that they had to limit the lanes of traffic that could proceed. I had a dear friend who was stuck in this...

My apologies in advance for the nature of today's topic. It's not warm and fuzzy, per se, but it IS necessary and covers a topic that I have yet to see explored in detail on any of the other prepping/survivalist/homesteading sites.  So take a deep breath and plow through. Let's talk reality for just a moment. With all that is going on in your life, why should you be better informed of a gang of illegal immigrant rebels?  Because they are a realistic face of the harm which threatens your life,...

By Kellene Bishop     Mental Preparedness Preparing for Fog of War PreparednessPro.com     The term “fog of war” is heard frequently amidst the fighting terrain of our soldiers.  In the middle of a shoot out between our forces and enemy combatants, time seems to warp, speed up, and just plain stop, depending on which soldier you speak with. This phenomenon is a result of the mind assimilates all that is going on around them at the time of a high adrenaline state. This altered state doesn’t...

By Kellene Bishop It’s time for a challenge, a REAL challenge. Last year I gave a list of suggested challenges that a person could choose from and then offered two kick-butt prizes to those who participated and were accountable for taking on a challenge (A Humless Solar Generator and a Be Young Essential Oils Pack) but this year I decided that I wanted to put the spotlight directly on a couple of very specifically designed challenges throughout the year in which I will also personally...

By Kellene Bishop   I’m convinced that the difference between peace and misery is practice—especially when it comes to preparedness. Practice is a very powerful educator and every time I practice, it is a time when I learn something new; see the scenario a little differently, recognize weaknesses which cause me to reevaluate and recognize strengths which gives me peace and confidence—something that is always in short supply amidst a crisis. I'm talking about practicing living like you envision...

By Kellene Bishop Having a basement full of freeze-dried goods, candles, and sleeping bags really doesn’t bring us a lasting peace unless we know we have the mental fortitude to ensure that we know how to prepare, put together, and endure a time when we might be forced to use these tools. In fact, the supplies are about as useless without experienced application of them as a bank account that has $1 million dollars in it but is frozen by a $1.2 million IRS debt. I like to call this dichotomy in...

By Kellene Bishop   The Principles of Spiritual and Mental Preparedness (1st and 2nd of the 10 Principles of Preparedness) includes the need for skills and knowledge, but also demands the strength of the mind and spirit necessary to carry us through our challenges of daily life as well as more serious, unusual scenarios. Unfortunately, some of this much needed fortitude that we need is required to endure the consequences of the ignorance of others.   Ironically, “preppers”  or “homesteaders”,...
