21 Oct 2014 by filed in Preparedness
In part 1 of this series about strengthening the bonds of your family and friends and your community through fun activities, I shared one game with you along with laying out a case for being mindful of such preparations. Today I’m going to share two other activities with you that I’m SURE you’re going to love.   This first game/activity didn’t actually come from my mom, rather I learned it in the Philippines when I served there on a welfare mission and I confess, I LOVED playing it.  I them...

Preparedness is not about being a hermit, or a Rambo-like survivalist.  And there might not be much time left for you to get one of your most critical assets in place--Your Community.   There’s a component of preparedness that I fear most preppers omit, either because they don’t understand the value or they refuse to understand the value.  And that’s the COMMUNITY.   While the headlines have been full of plenty of reasons to remain somewhat private about the extent of one’s preparedness...

Awesome Projects for Preppers--by Guest Contributor Matt Stevens While there are a lot of people whose prepping starts and stops with stockpiling supplies, there are many others who make it a lifestyle. These people ultimately end up much better prepared, because they look beyond just having food and water and make or buy things to take care of any eventuality. With the high cost of buying prepping equipment and supplies, more and more have taken to making their own.   In pretty much all of...

One of the fundamentals for being prepared for all that life throws at us is having what we really need, when we really need it--and having a back-up.  I accomplish a lifestyle of Panic Free Preparedness by living by the Rule of Three.   The Rule of 3, is the ultimate expression of one “preparing for the worst”. As I learned it, the Rule of 3 comes from a military training message: “3 is 2, 2 is 1, and 1 is none”, and boy howdy can I attest to that being the truth! What does it mean “1 is none...

What You Need to Know About Lice-- By Guest Contributor Jackie K.    What I know now, compared to what I knew in January of 2010, are worlds apart.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of being exposed to lice, count your blessing.  I never experienced them as a child, nor did I know anyone who had.  I do remember, in elementary school, these ladies coming into our classroom on a regular basis to check our heads.  However, no one was ever sent home, and we would all laugh and say it felt weird...
I'm a Prepper

I hope that you've all enjoyed your holiday weekend and that you got to do something over the weekend that helped you become a little bit more independent. I know I did and so now I'm back and ready to work hard at Preparedness Pro. To start off with a bang, I decided that it was time for me to share with you my original list of 85 different things that I've come up with over the last year and half that just might be a dead giveaway that you're a prepper.  If you find that you can nod your...

62 Reasons Why my Bandana was Saved from the Donation Pile--by Guest Contributor Emily S   Over the years I have accumulated a collection of bandanas which I have received from various events, activities and as gifts.  After their immediate use had passed I would wash, fold, and tuck them away in my sock drawer.  About a year ago while I was doing some spring cleaning, I came across my collection of bandanas and decided that since I had never used any of them, and they were just taking up room...

The news as of late does a great job reminding me why preparedness really does need to be an everyday focus. We’ve clearly seen that we can’t stop thinking about preparedness just because we are going on a vacation to Paris.  Look at the consequences that so many are enduring all because of the winter season behaving like a winter season. How about all of the travelers all over the world that were stranded in 2010, all because a volcano in Iceland from across the ocean blew its top?   So, today...
