Virtual Event – Prepping For The Worst: Basic Survival Strategies For Everyone (July 31, 8 p.m. Eastern)

Virtual Event – Prepping For The Worst: Basic Survival Strategies For Everyone (July 31, 8 p.m. Eastern)

It’s happening people. Be prepared. Join us. The time for preparing is now, not when everyone is fighting over the last biscuits on the looted-store shelves.

It can happen here. Sign up for our event, the time for prepping is before there is a problem.

I wrote about that almost a year ago, Prepping for the Worst:

I no longer view “preppers” as crazy. Maybe they were right, just early. Better early than late.

I don’t plan to be late.

Since then, my conviction that we run a significant risk of systemic failures that will require self-reliance for food, water, and energy supplies has only increased. So we are putting on a virtual event on Sunday evening, July 31, 2022, at 8 p.m. Eastern, designed to provide expert advice on basic preparation that everyone — from city, to suburban, to rural — can take before things get worse. The time for preparing is now, not when everyone is fighting over the last biscuits on the looted store shelves.

Both Kemberlee (hint, chickens) and I (hint, my wife no longer thinks I’m nuts about this) will discuss our own strategies, but most important, we have an expert guest, Lisa Bedford:

Lisa Bedford is better known as The Survival Mom and founder of The Survival Mom blog and online prepping courses. Since 2009, she has encouraged families to adopt a calm and common-sense approach to an uncertain future.

Lisa is also the author of Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst Case Scenarios and Emergency Evacuations: Get Out Fast When It Matters Most, and has been featured in national and international media. Her goal is to reach everyday families with the message of preparedness.

It’s happening people. Be prepared. Join us.

Registration is required.

    True, but the individual outcomes will be far better with preparation.

      We are about to find out what a world without Fertilizer looks like.

      Hint: It looks like Global Famine.

    I have been a survivalist for many years keeping many cans of beans and potatoes and bags of rice and beans as well as salt and sugar. and paper products : but it’s work and when something happens I won’t be ready because I will have eaten most of it.

First Rule of Prep – don’t tell anyone that you prep.

Exactly. Don’t make yourself a target.

Makes you think if you really want to live like an animal having to defend your property and family with no end in sight of a better life

Will this be available to view later? Having it on Sunday keeps a lot of good folk from joining.

A whole lot is coming our way. Prepping for one even it prepping for them all. Stack it to the rafters folks.

I’ve considered this deeply alone & with others for over a decade. A few points I believe:
– Those that think they will hunt and fish themselves to safety should consider Native Americans knew years where game was scarce, hunted by a fraction of today’s population. Translation: The animals will be hunted until they are scarce, same with birds, fish.
– Those that think they will farm to live, well, your very visible food will be taken.
– Supplies are nice….but…
– The predators will quickly form into packs and TAKE what they want.
– Those that form GROUPS will have the best chance of survival. Numbers, defense, and a broad arrange of skills brought to the group.
– Guns are VERY neccessary, but those stockpiling dozens of weapons and tens of thousands of rounds are missing the point. You will not survive if you need to expend hundreds of rounds, let alone thousands. Have the weapons you need for basic situations. Small game (.22), Shotgun, scoped hunting rifle, high capacity magazine rifle, pistol. Consider more common weapons chambered in more common rounds. Better, have the group agree on commonality.
As for day to day, I have a few months supply, rice 7 beans being cheap & storable. You can rotate it into use & replace or donate to food pantries before expiration. Water purification tablets, edged weapons & tools, a go bag
– Until the die off is complete, your survival will be day to day. The strongest of lone individuals will be overcome by groups. I highly suggest forming groups with others, and perhaps diversifying and adding various skills in the group. Anyone know how to make a barrel?
