Step 2

by CCCooper

OK, you are past the point of needing to be urged to prep. You have made the decision to accept the realities and inevitabilities of what is coming down the road. You have started w/ a buying plan for additional foodstuffs, water, and some first aid items. You have a gun (or 3 or 4) and some ammo. You understand the concept of OpSec.

(Deep Breath)

What do you do now?

I believe that mental preparedness MUST come with physical preparedness. You can’t do this half way and succeed. What you can do, is write down your goals and objectives and come up with a plan that allows you to prep within your means and reach your goals in a suitable time frame.

Now, what are some worthy goals?
Food. 3 weeks of food for 4 people. 3 weeks of water for 4 people. Calculate 2 meals per day per person and 1 gallon of water per person per day. For food, consider easily prepared items. Canned goods, pastas, ramen, food bars, energy bars, soups, etc.

Information- If you have access to a printer, internet research is invaluable. The list of topics is almost endless.
Food Storage, Long Term Storage Foods, Survival Web Sites, Prepper Web Sites, Amazon, EBay, Water Purifiers, Water Storage, canning, preserving, dehydrating, jerky, gorp, granola, Grain Mills, Hard red or White Wheat, Heirloom Seeds, Military Surplus, Military Field Manuals, MREs, Candles, Fire Starters, Outdoor Cooking, Wood Stoves, Bug Out Bags, Get Out Of Dodge, TEOTWAWKI, Bunkers, Shelters, CBRN, NBC, Weather Radios, Nuke Alert/Rad Detectors, Water Filters, Big Berkey, field expedient anything, knives, axes, hatchets, Para Cord/550 Cord, 100 MPH Tape, Main Battle Rifle, OpSec, Boy Scout handbook, Boston’s Gun bible, PAW Fiction, any of the Foxfire Books,etc, etc.

OK, you get the idea. So much information is out there. Print what is important to you. Print what you don’t already know. Print to give to others and for posterity.

Self-Evaluation. Be honest. Be brutally honest. Have a loved one be brutally honest. Physical condition, mental acuity, current knowledge, current skills, obvious faults or shortcomings, strengths and weaknesses. Develop a plan to make yourself a better person; more valuable to you and your family than you are now.

OK, enough to take a breath and dive right in, RIGHT?
