Preppers, Survivalist and Minimalist

Preppers, Survivalist and Minimalist

I want to talk about what it means to be a “Prepper”, “Survivalist”, “Minimalist”.  As to pertains to the “Emergency Preparedness” awareness. As I said before I don’t specifically believe in any one of the ideals of these groups of people but rather all three. I tend to practice being “Self-Reliant” However, just because they believe differently from you and me doesn’t mean that they are altogether wrong.

Flathead Emergency Services

Flathead Emergency Services

This past weekend there was a safety fair at our fairgrounds. So, I decided to go and check it out. As I wondered through all the exhibits and equipment on display, it occurred to me that these folks put their lives on the line everyday protecting us and providing services that I feel we take for granted. I’m talking about our Office of Emergency Services (OES) that are provided by many organizations, like the Sheriffs office, local Police Department, State…

I found myself kinda in a spot since I couldn’t get any work done nor cruise the web. I found myself going through withdraws.

D/C Power

D/C Power

Hi all, the other day the power went out here in the valley for over 6 hours. And I was writing a post on what I did when that happened. I was able to still do work because of what I have in place. As I was writing, I was explaining about all the things I have that run-off D/C power. (Batteries).  I thought to myself that this would make an excellent post as well. In our age of technology,…

Rules for Preparedness and survival

Rules for Preparedness and survival

Rules to Learn By There are a set of rules that will help you to think about being “Prepared”. In the great outdoors there is the “Rule of 3’s”, which states this. A person can last about 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter due to exposure to the elements, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food. Granted, the first set of 3’s may not be an issue in your dwelling as we will always have air to…

Thankful

Thankful

I have thought about this for several weeks as to what my first post would be about. And there is nothing more I’d like to do but to start helping others in getting prepared.
