Preppers: The Emergency Action Plan

During an emergency panic can easily take over and cloud your thinking, as well the thinking and actions of those around you. Having a plan is only half the battle.

Prepping can be an expensive and time-consuming endeavor. Stockpiling non-perishables—especially prepackaged, long-shelf life meals—takes a good chunk of change. Not to mention, some survival equipment is costly. Don’t let the price of prepping scare you off. You can prepare a go-bag for less.

Getting in Shape for a Bug Out

In my youth, I was a Boy Scout. The model of the Boy Scouts of America is “be prepared.” I think that’s good advice not just for the Boy Scouts, but for life. You never know what could happen, and sometimes it’s better to be prepared.
