By Bev,

What did I do to prepare this week? I bought a packet of T.C. Tetracycline fish antibiotics for my stores. Boy, has that gone up! I paid almost $12 for 10 powder packets. But I have to tell you what happened to me this week…

I received a “care package” from John from Iowa. Now, I was thinking that he was sending some of his oh so delicious chili, but I was totally overwhelmed when I opened the box!

Care package

A little crank/solar FEMA radio, a Sweewater water filter, a mini field stove with fuel packets and a solar panel!!! WOW! My first solar panel! Now granted, these are preppers “leftovers” as he has upgraded, but for me the solar panel is a whole new adventure in independence. And the rest make wonderful backups for what I already have. And John said that I can even add on to the VW solar panel he sent me with ones from ebay, I found them here:


So yesterday I went to Wally World and bought a dual 12v USB adapter and am going to start experimenting with solar power!

Okay Guys and Gals, this is YOUR blog and we are running out of posts. What I have lined up between Christmas and New Years are YouTube videos on preparedness that I think you will get something out of, I know I did.  But what do YOU have to share?  Do you have a slick new way of doing something? Gardening info (would be nice in the Great White Out), greenhouse dos and don’ts? Or what do you want to know about? Have you seen an interesting YouTube video that you would like to share? Know of a great deal or free ebook appropriate for other preppers?

This site is all about YOU! The older prepper. SHARE!

Okay Patriots, how did you prepare this week?

“A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions.

The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”

I Thought This Was Cute…
