MONDAY!!! What did you do to prep this week?

What did you do to prep this week? A weekly post about the various things I do to help myself and my family/friends become better prepared.

I sold my Taurus Millennium that I did the review on. It felt like it was time to get a dedicated to concealed carry pistol. So I decided to use the money to buy a S&W Shield and extra mag. Speaking of the Shield it’s doing great. One of the best gun purchases I’ve made in a long time. Had a very interesting discussion with the family about preparedness. The are like-minded and feel the need as well. Received a copy of “Absolute Anarchy” by Johnny Jacks. Started reading it. Look for a write-up coming soon.

A friend sent some pretty awesome items and I want to give big thanks to him. I received a finger pulse ox reader as well as an automated blood pressure cuff.

The calibration on the BP cuff seems right on and is accurate. Had a meeting with some prepper friends of mine. Did a communication check from the BOL and got to 5 miles. We could really bump it up using a better antenna set up. Also looked into getting a 40-watt GMRS radio. That’s about it for me. How about you?

  • Anybody else out there have life events pile on to the point where you’re barely covering what you NEED to do, much less what you WANT to do?

  • Picked up a new Ruger SR 22 for my wife. She’s a gun enthusiast but as of now is still unwilling to move beyond the 22lr. You work with what you got, the SR should serve her well for awhile. Will be planting (late) this weekend but most of our canning will be done from the farmers market this year.

  • Made herbal medicines for long term storage pantry, broke 60 lb. bucket of honey into 1/2 gallon jars for 3 month pantry. Packaged dry medicinal herbs for long term storage in mylar with O2 absorbers. Harvested medicinal herbs to hang dry. Taught fermentation techniques to another prepper.
