Be Better Prepared: 12 Brilliant (And Slightly Badass) Ways to Do It

Everyone wants to be better prepared. Today we will share 12 brilliant and slightly badass ways to do it. You and your family have to be ready and prepared for all scenarios. But what happens when you are forced to evacuate for an extended period of time? You will be forced to leave with only what you can carry. A situation may arise where you will be forced to improvise. This article will help you be better prepared for when the original plans fail.

Once you determine why you are prepping, you will have a better understanding of what you have to do. Prepping is life assurance and not life insurance; you are preparing to maintain life during and after a cataclysmic event.

What is required for life after the disaster? Surviving the crisis is one thing, but surviving in the aftermath is an entirely different scenario. You have to think outside the box because there really are no rules, and to survive you have to meet the challenges before they meet you because by then it is too late. Read more

Water, Water, Water…. Get the point?

Don’t forget that even with all the discussions about guns, ham radios, food stores, retreats, etc…. you will not make it more than 72 hours without water!

Locate water sources in your area as you cannot store enough to last forever.  Get water treatment options like filters, etc.  and ultimately you want a good 5 gallon pot to boil your water.  Of course it doesn’t hurt to have a nice supply of water bottles too.

If you control water you may just be able to scavenge enough to survive – if you don’t?  Well, game over.

JUST REMEMBER TO PREP WATER – WATER – WATER.  It is the first three rules of prepping!!!

Attack on the United States!

The title is salacious – I know.  Why aren’t more people calling this what it is?!?!  foreign embassies are the land of sovereign nations – this is a basic tenet of international law.  PLAIN AND SIMPLE – THE UNITED STATES WAS ATTACKED TWICE THESE PAST FEW DAYS!  ONCE IN EGYPT AND AGAIN IN LIBYA.  My heart goes out the families of those Americans serving overseas who died.



Now, any history student can tell you that the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria is what caused WWI.  How hard is it to imagine the storming of US Embassies and the murder of a US diplomat could cause WWIII?  This is already a screwed up area of the world and these sort of “sparks” can ignite the world into a blaze of war.  Israel is clearly itching to bomb Iran – the Islamic world couldn’t hate the US anymore than they already do – China and Russia seem to be supporting our enemies (Iran and North Korea) and the world police (the US) could be pulled into full a blown WORLD WAR.

From a prepping stand point this doesn’t change much but it should give you the incentive to step up your preps.  World war which will inevitably involve some middle east country or countries will spike oil prices, spook the markets and cause massive panic.  We will very likely not see attacks on US soil as the fight will happen overseas but that does not mean that mean we will not feel the effects at home.  Our country is divided politcally and socially like never before and our economy is in a very fragile state.  Anything serious could tip the balance and cause a knee-jerk reaction that results in a depression or worse.

It was said that today’s headlines are a terrible reminder how violent the world is.  Remember that statement.  Protect yourself and your family.

We could all wake up ANY morning and find that Isreal has bombed alleged nuclear facilities in Iran - a terrorist cell (backed by a shadow foreign nation) has sucessfully attacked the US or China has attacked someone over disputed territories or North Korea hit South Korea with another artillary strike.

PREP NOW and PREP HARD – You may be running out of time!
