Anyway point of this is: there is no recovery after some things, I mean man can feel lucky because he is alive and went through that period and came out with all hands and legs still on his body. But real recovery is not how many aid packages are delivered to country or area, or if the local government building has flowers in front of it.
If you plan for survival scenario, dont forget that massive change is part of this.
I see in many survival forums and communities that people talk about freeze dried blueberry muffins for breakfast, their big generators and what they do to keep life normal in survival scenarios.
I think this is just half of preparing and some people miss out on other half.
Get comfortable with change and to live worse.
When I was recording interview for my course, I was joking with Jay that we should add a hell week to course. A training week in which people stay in room, with just few drinks, a bucket as toilet, few grains or very basic food to eat and old piece of meat that is rotting for the smell.
This is of course too extreme but you get the idea. Instead just try to make trips to the outdoors. Get comfortable doing your toilet things out there if you have the chance and do this responsibly with digging hole and covering it up. Learn simple living like humans had to for many thousands of years.
If you do not plan or prepare your mind for change all those time you spend learning about survival and preparedness might help you survive physically but you will lose yourself mentally.

You either prepare and stand on your own beholden to no one or you become dependent on others to provide your basic needs and become thierserf. Me I dont want to be beholden to anyone for providing what is needed for me and mine. I certainly dont want to have to kiss some gubberment third class bureaucratic to try and coax some help from them, I dont want some jack booted thug herding me in line and telling me where to stand, sit, eat or sleep. And last but not least I dont want to be shut up in with a bunch of zombies and have to worry about not only trying to get basic necessities but having to fight to keep what I manage to get.
Now anyone thinking that prepping is foolish ask you whats easier telling your children and loved ones why you prepared or explaining to them why you didnt?
But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8
But then someone has to stand on the bridge waiting for FEMA to bring them a bottle of water, an MRE and a warm blanket so as to provide the Network Anchors their background Money Shot. I wonder how that will workout for them?
Face it weve kicked the financial can so far down the road that we are running out of road and the can which was once the size of a soda can is now the size of an oil drum (Try kicking that!)
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
I could do it but I know my family couldn’t. One gets freaked with the least change in schedule and forget holidays. Another is too whiney. I’ve seen them behave in normal times and in times of emergency. It’s not pretty.
Sounds like our Boy Scout Summer Camp, at Camp Lakota in N. Illinois, back in the 50s. It was really crude/primitive back then, but we adapted and all survived, just fine.
Now, they have a website: http://www.camplakota.org/about/
We Conservatives are a small voting block, but since Romney is probably going to lose in a very close election, we are an ESSENTIAL voting block to the RNC.
If the RNC wants to win the 2012 National Presidential and Congressional, they must have our full support.
We impressed them with our 2010 efforts, but the RNC has done NOTHING to put the values of our 89 Warriors into effect.
We now hold the balance of power, IF WE INSIST ON AN OPEN CONVENTION.
Without an Open Convention the GOP-E will choose weak Candidate Romney to lose to Obama, just like they did with lame-brain McCain in 2008.
If the RNC overrules their own stupid Primary Rules, then there is the POSSIBILITY that the Delegates will choose a stellar Conservative Dark Horse that we can promote with vigor to topple Dictator (in his own mind) Obama.
Ponder these ideas, chat with others, and lets visit again on this unique opportunity to not only beat Obama, but slaughter Obama and his Marxist ideas in a massive election Republican Landslide.
Even on the VERY slim chance that Romney squeaks by Obama in November, the Federal problems we have today will be worse in 4 years with Romney as POTUS.
If the RNC wants to win this election, they need us. Let us bring that fact to their attention by a vigorous, grass-roots Campaign for an OPEN Convention.
What say all of you?
“What say all of you?”
Why do you think we’re prepping?
An “open convention movement” seems to strike just the right chord right now. It would be helpful if that phrase became a buzzword and a talking point for Rush and the Faux News crews.
Romney isn’t the only weak candidate. BO just lost several counties to a felon in West Virginia, and an no-name in Arkansas. Any Democrat in the know would be feeling echoes of 1968 and 1980 right now.
” - - - It would be helpful if that phrase became a buzzword and a talking point - - - “
Well said. I can strike matches all that I want to, but if there is no dry kindling nearby, the ideas just stay in the dark.
The key is to capture the imagination of the voting public.
We’ll see how TEXAS votes on the 29 th. If Romney struggles in the Texas Primary, the OPEN Convention Campaign might just be a-fixin’, to begin, to commence!
The Southern Democrats, often called the Reagan Democrats are FAR more Conservative than Romney.
Unless Romney gets taken behind the woodshed and gets some Conservative sense knocked into him he will not carry the Conservative Democrat vote in November.
My personal opinion is that Romney is stupid when it comes to learning about politics. Stupid in the sense that he is incapable of learning. Witness the lack of change in Romney’s speech talking points during this Primary.
ALL Democrats are scared s-—less of Marxist Obama, so no elected Democrat will oppose Obama. But watch the vote totals and notice that Obama is losing the Mom and Pop Southern Democrat.
Yep. Hats off to the prisoner in West Virginia for running against Obama. Love that he beat Obama in some counties!
The ENTIRE Nation is begging our two very sorry political parties to give us two leaders to choose from. Two leaders that we would follow into the gates of Hell!
Probably too late now, but it is there, for the taking. The RNC is just too corrupt to open the convention. They owe too many people, too many favors. IMHO.
” - - - The RNC is just too corrupt to open the convention.”
Maybe, maybe not.
Since this is the ONLY election that matters for the future of America, I will try to do my best to get us off the dead-end thinking that “WE DARE NOT CHALLENGE THE RNC TO PUT COUNTRY ABOVE PARTY.”
The RNC guy put their pants on a lot differently than you and I do. That gives us the advantage.
BTW, how DO the RNC guys put their pants on with their heads stuck up their a-—s?
By looking at them, my guess is that they put their pants over their depends. But hey, we will all be there at some point, hopefully.
