Ask Yourself 4 Questions
« on: December 02, 2015, 11:01:37 AM »
I don't think much of #1 due primarily to OpSec.  Go read the rest.  It will open your eyes/mind some.  Maybe a little, maybe a lot.



Ask yourself these four questions to reveal your level of preparedness

by Lori Tuesday, Dec 1, 2015

Think for a moment about the last time you experienced an emergency situation such as a winter storm or a power outage. How prepared were you? Now consider a bigger problem such as a large-scale food shortage or water contamination incident. What if a disaster forced you to leave your home for days or even weeks? How well would you survive such situations?

thats pretty can deffently get a person to thinking about their level of preparedness..i think that the LEVEL 1 more along the lines,of someone hasn't given much thought,if any.towards hunting and/or home protection,when it comes to opsec..i think that im somewhere between level 2 and 3 in food preps..

be prepared,be worried,be careful..and watch your 6..
expect and prepare for the worst.and hope for the best..

I'm at about 85% of level 4 and 20% of level 5.

I'm at about a 4.6 - a 5 without a farm.

Most of my most local friends don't know much, but that's starting to change. Now whenever something goes wrong with a plan and a tool or supply is needed, everyone stops and looks at me.

But I have seeds and tools and I know where to buy/barter/steal animals, so I have about a year or two in food to get cracking. I'm working on a remote location to call my own.

The better scenario for me, though, in the meantime, would be to show up at an established farm with an impressive resume and a strong back.
A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures.

Last year I purchased a one man cross cut saw for a Christmas present to myself.  This year I ordered a two man cross cut saw.  I intend to be able to cut wood to feed my wood stove.  If I don't use it, then it will make excellent barter material.  Also I don't hunt or trap but I purchased traps to use or trade.  I plan to purchase more and a variety this year.

I still have a long way to go. I seem to be at about level 3, higher in some places. I too, have a plan and am working to improve my preps every week. It just takes a lot of time and money. Oh, and storage space which is an issue for some things.
