  • Let’s get gross for a minute

    About the closest parallel to being evacuated for several days or longer would be those intrepid souls who hike the “Long trails” of our country like the Appalachian Trail (Georgia to Maine) or the Pacific Crest Trail (Mexico to Canada) among others.  On the trail for months at a time, coming out only to pick up food and supplies every week or so, they really do live “off the grid”.

    Several years ago, some nice folks at the University of Minnesota gave a health questionnaire to... Continue Reading →

  • How Did You Prep This Week?

     

    Some people think of prepping as something that has an end point, an act that can be mapped out with a completion at the end.

    We are barraged with commercial ads saying one expert or another is forecasting that gold and silver will be going up and that, gold and silver will be an important form of monetary exchange should there be a collaps... Continue Reading →

  • Time to tweak your car emergency kit for colder weather.

    Every year about this time, I take an hour or two on a Saturday, before the college football games start, mosey out my cars, and take a few minutes to perform a few adjustments on the emergency kits in the trunk.  It’s not a bad time of year to do it, and while your “tweaks” might be different than mine, here is what I do to our kits:
