Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,
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 the adult education office at the local 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.

The Modern Survivalist - 7 Summer EDC Essentials
As you can see, from the above article, not all advice is appropriate for you and your family because wearing short pants exposes your legs to the sun (sunburns), branches (scraps and cuts), and might stop you from getting into certain places, like a nice restaurant. A baseball hat fails to protect your ears from the sun (sunburns), the back of your neck (sunburns), and gives you hat hair. A watch costing $970 does a poor job of protecting your wallet. Plus, it might set you up as a target for thieves, just like the Glock hat.
Lastly, a $170 multi-tool for everyone in the family and a $100 pair of sunglasses, a $400 phone for you and your partner, and ... (O.K. I can agree about the shoes) would run a family of four close to $2000.
$2000 that could be better spent, somewhere else.
