At a time when we see and hear about things going crazy on a daily basis; insane storms and natural disasters of Biblical proportions, the very real threat of attack, EMP’s, and other horrific scenarios such as economic collapses, we have to be ready for the “what if.”
You own insurance for your home, car, business, or health because you want to be ready in case you need it. You may even own a gun or several for the same reason…? You hope you don’t need any of those things, but you do because you know it is better to have them and not need them, than to need them and not have them.
So what if you woke up tomorrow and you notice that there are no lights on, your computer won’t turn on, your cell phone is either dead or if you’re among the few lucky ones, scratchy at best. Then you take a walk outside and notice some of your neighbors wandering about experiencing the same thing, all wondering what might be going on. Next you decide to jump in your car to take a drive and check the surrounding area; and just as your neighbors are soon to find out about their own cars, it won’t start..! Right about then you notice that no electronic devices are working anywhere.
Maybe someone hears something on a ham radio or something like that, and maybe you start getting some sketchy details that something really bad has happened. Whatever authorities are around aren’t saying much, if anything; and maybe you hear the constant drone of emergency sirens in the distance, or even nearby. You are suddenly starting to consider that maybe the proverbial “stuff has hit the fan.”
What if things aren’t quite that bad and it’s “only” a severe natural disaster; such as we all witnessed a couple of weeks ago in Louisiana…?!
Have you thought about what you would do..? Do you have a plan..? You may have even discussed the possibility of such a scenario with friends in the past, and maybe you know one or two families that are “preppers” and have been impressed with their readiness. The question still remains; are you ready…?
Do you have any way of protecting yourself and your loved ones..? Do you have any sort of dry food or water supply, or a way to purify any water source you might happen upon..? Have you stocked up on things like batteries, flashlights, (which may not work) blankets, guns and ammo, MRE’s, fuel or any of the other things you might need..? Do you have a meeting place set up or know of a place to retreat to..? If cash becomes worthless, do you have a means of tangible trade such as some sort of precious metal coins, ammo, alcohol, or other items that could become immediate currency..?
If the answer to all or most of these questions is no, you really need to start thinking about it, because the reality is that while we all hope things will never deteriorate like that, it is not only possible, it is really a matter of when, and you don’t want to be found lacking.
My friends, you do not need to be unprepared, and you do not need to outlay tons of money to get ready. If you visit your local outdoor sporting goods store you’ll see a number of individual emergency “bug out” items. For the most part, you’ll find that to learn about and stock up on enough of the most important items could take months or years as you learn what you need to get and what you can do without. If you opt for one of the “bug out” packages that these stores carry, you will likely find them inadequate and priced well over a thousand dollars.
You’re going to need things like a small solar charging panel, a real compass, a tent and a sleeping bag, a hatchet and knife, a machete, a good fire starter, a sling shot capable of bringing down small game if you don’t have a gun, compact fishing gear, and other assorted items; and you need it to be as compact as possible. Enter the Ready Network.
The Ready Network is devoted to offering everything I’ve described above and a whole lot more for when the time comes to “bug out” or even if you just simply want to camp out. The only thing they don’t include is any sort of firearm; an item I personally would suggest for anyone to add along with at least some MRE’s which are available. They also offer a way to share this with your friends and family and make a few or a lot of dollars while you’re doing it.
If you understand the uncertainty of the times we live in, I invite you to visit the ReadyNetwork website here to learn more. You’ll find contact information to get any questions answered, and while your there, feel free to look around the store. We have lots of items now and many more on the way, so come back often and keep in mind what great Holiday gifts everything in the store would make for you and your preppers and campers.
Don’t keep putting it off; if you’re like many people, you’ve waited and thought about this long enough; the time to do something about it is now.Add a comment
