Wendesday's Websites of the Week - January 9th, 2019


Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,

Winter Scene in New England
George Henry Durrie
(1859)


Introduction
There are many sources of information for you and your family to use in your quest to learn about prepping and its related skills. Some of them local, like the town's library or adult education at the community college. Some may be regional, such as the county agriculture extension service office and a larger cities' art and history museums. On a national scale, information sources like a national library, national archives, or the nation's military is available to you and your family.

With the explosion of the internet, thirty years ago, other sources have opened up to you and your family. Sources such as blogs, videos, websites, and many others, and that is the reason for this Wednesday blurb, to provide new and old sources of information to you and your family from the internet.

So, ...

Let's get started.


Thinking
You and your partner are going to have to manager many different projects, as your family gets prepared for the tough times ahead, such as buying long-term food storage, making sure everyone has adequate clothing, stocking enough ammunition for your defensive firearms, and many other tasks.

Emergency Evacuation Kit
The easiest method of dealing with an event is to leave, in a hurry.

So, you need to be packed, in advance.

Air




Shelter
I can't stress enough, ...

Appropriate shelter is more important than water and food, if is freezing out.

Medical
What will you use for a medical emergency?

A first-aid kit, of course.

Protection
Many people make the mistake of spending a lot of money on complicated handguns and rifles for their protection, during an event.

So, ...

I suggest purchasing a .357 magnum revolver, for you and your family.

Communications
The first item you and your family need to purchase, if you live in these United States, is a weather alert radio with battery backup.

Power Production
One of my family's goals this year is to build an alternative power source, like a so-called solar powered generator.

But, ...

It isn't as easy as it looks.

Modular Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment, better known as MOLLE, is these United States combat equipment.

It is cheap and plentiful, so you need to know how to use it.
