Today is Easter Sunday! I hope that you spent your time with family and had the chance to reflect on what today means for you. I am spending my time today with my wife and boys. As a matter of fact, technology is so handy that this post is being made while I am at church this morning.
As far as how things were last week, I battled a cold all week that really took a toll on me. It ended up being bad enough that I needed to stay home from work a couple of days so that I could get the rest that my body needed to get better.
Here is what I found last week that I feel is noteworthy:
How To Build A D.I.Y. Portable Solar Generator – This is a step-by-step article that was put together by Dale over at the Survivalist Prepper about how he put together a portable solar system. If you are interested in putting together a back-up power source, this is a must read.
Bartering Your Skills To Fill The Cupboard – Barter can be a great way to get something that you want or need without having to spend any money. Whether you barter for food for your cupboard like the example in the article or use your talents for something else, barter skills are handy now and will be vital in a survival situation.
17 Common Home Security Mistakes – As a prepper, it can be pretty easy to get caught up in all the gee-whiz gadgets and overlook the basics. When it comes to security, it is often the basic (and low cost) things that we can do that will make the most difference. These are some great points. One of my favorite and low cost home security items is the FakeTV.
A Green Beret’s Guide To Low -Budget Home-Defense Techniques 101: “Early Warning Systems And Fortifications” – The title kinda says it all but I will say that if you don’t get anything out of this, you didn’t read it close enough. Also make sure that you check out part two in the series; A Green Beret’s Guide To Low-Budget Home-Defense Techniques 102: “Defensive Positions”
10 D.I.Y. Projects From PVC Pipe For Your Homestead – Some of these projects might apply to you more than the rest, but they are all nifty in my opinion. I especially thought the PVC Snow Shoes were cool.
Docs To Build A Life On – What would you do if there was a huge disaster and you had to start your life all over again? Would you have all the documents that you need? Here is a great list of documents to organize now in the event that this unfortunate situation ever comes along.
How Many People Will Have To Migrate Out Of California When All The Water Disappears? – This hasn’t happened yet, but it does highlight the need to be prepared. It also brings up a scary subject…the possibility that there will be at least a segment of California that will have to relocate, a move that will place a strain on the resources in other parts of the country and transplant the political ideals that are synonymous with California.
I hope this last week has been great for you. If nothing else, hopefully you weren’t sick like I was. Keep preparing for tough times.
