Hope everyone is doing well.
This week has been extremely busy – kids, work, etc. I managed to get a few things worked on in the realm of preparedness.
- Picked up some cinder blocks needed for the next rain barrel installation.
- Completed a set of seed banks for my group.
- Found cardboard needed to line the inside of the galvanized trash can I picked up a couple weeks ago. Going to put together an EMP kit. Should have completed this project already.
- Pulled out a few knives and sharpened them up. This was also long overdue.
- I’m putting together a kit that allows a Sawyer water filter to be connected to a bucket for larger volumes. Sourcing all the parts is not easy but think I am almost there. This could end up being the most cost effective, high volume water filtration system I’ve come across.
- Worked more on the homemade ham radio repeater with zero success. Going to keep trying.
- Finished Mark Goodwin’s new book Behold, Darkness and Sorrow: Seven Cows. Ugly and Gaunt. Fantastic! Like his other offerings this book is Christian-based and lacks profanity and lewd “situations”. Really good.
“Ambitious college student, Daniel Walker, has his world turned upside down when he begins having prophetic dreams about the judgment coming upon America. Through one of his dreams, Daniel learns of an imminent threat of an EMP attack which will wipe out America’s electric grid and all computerized devices, sending the country into a technological dark age. Living in a nation where all life-sustaining systems of support are completely dependent on electricity and computers, the odds for survival are dismal. Municipal water services, retail food distribution, police, fire, EMS and all emergency services will come to a screeching halt. If he wants to live through the most catastrophic period in American history, Daniel will have to race against time to get prepared, before the lights go out. Buy your copy of Behold Darkness and Sorrow and jump into this post-apocalyptic, prepper-fiction thriller, today!”
- Caught up on watching some YouTube.
So – what have you done this past week?
