I hope that this prepping introduction helps you understand why I thought we all needed a new venue for information, education, and community. It begins with what led me to prepare, and how this led to changes in political views, values and other aspects of my life. those thoughts were compiled in a post I wrote for personal use, a touchstone of sorts:  Prepare. Survive. Live A Warning to Myself.

Once the process began I found much information that helped me in all facets of preparedness, due to this I compiled a list of Concepts to Aid in Emergency Preparedness to revisit often for reminders and additions, this helped me begin to communicate the Prepare. Survive. Live. ideas. Our Preparedness Primer sets out to summarize preparedness as I see it and as I wish to show others how to go about preparing with purpose and definite goals while avoiding the mistakes I did.

Preparing is getting your body and mind in shape to better survive whatever comes up.

Surviving is an unfortunate period that you prepared for. This isn’t something that you want to do, it’s not a vacation or some sort of test, it is it, and you have to come out the other side alive.

Live a life of preparedness by living it fully away from large urban areas. Self-ownership, responsibility, self-sufficiency is the foundation. Hard work and commitment lead to a hands-on full and rewarding life.

We invite you to start with what’s here for free, some of it is available in other places on the web, or locally in your public libraries. Make use of them.

Here is to humble beginnings.


Prepare.Survive.Live. Three words that tell you what we’re about. About your preparedness, your survival during an emergency, and living after a disaster.
