From the Desk of John Rourke – February 2nd, 2017


Preparedness Intelligence: For those of us that believe we have a better than average chance of finding ourselves in a “SHTF” – whatever that means – consider the incredible opportunity we have RIGHT NOW.  Here’s an exercise –

Go sit in your favorite chair, lay on the couch – or throw a pillow behind your head in bed. Think of your own vision of SHTF. Consider the living conditions. Consider the daily tasks that will have to be completed. Consider your current inventory of items – food, water, power, batteries, etc. How long will they last? How will you feel as you see your supplies diminish? Will you be able to source more? What will the results be should you run out of some of these supplies? What items had you not thought of before?

Consider boosting your inventories and adding those maybe you thought of but do not have enough of or at all.
