What have you done today to better your Prep? II

Recommended Posts

Just finished checking the water tank. Remember I did not tell the family that I shut off the water main to the house. In 3 days we used 260 gallons in our home with 2 adults and 2 children. We also washed 2 loads a clothes. The next test will be done next week and we will do it with the training scenario that the Shit has hit the fan. Toilet flushing down to a minimal, washing clothes by hand, and other water conservative ideas.
thats alot i assume that inluded baths/showers?

damn that sucks I am sorry to hear that {really} I pray the good lord blesses you some how some way,

Christmas is the day everyone I know can count on a gift from me, it is shameful that people should not

consider others during this time IT'S A DAY WE HAVE TO RESPECT CHRIST'S GIFT TO US. how better than to give

to others anything it is the thought { may sound corny but it is true} that counts.

 

All I know is when some folks stand before God and are asked how did you show my people you cared about them

I would not want to be looking down and shuffling my feet at that moment.

 

If your a Christian Hebrews 9:28 you do not get judged not even a question your ticket has been paid in full.

I LIKE IT...

Ordered two sets of A-TACS FG camo outfits from Propper and two sets of Fenix PD32 flashlights. The fat man I guess forgot about me this year, so I got it on my own. Also picked up book The Art of War by Sun Tzu.

 

Thats a very good book. It may seem confusing at times, but if memory serves me right, when it comes to warfare, I believe it focuses on remaining honorable, and to think outside the box. I.E. When your enemy expects/anticipates you retreating, you charge. When they expect you to charge them, retreat and draw them out.
