Just saying hello

Recommended Posts


I am new here, nice to meet you all. I live in Illinois and I stumble into emergency preparedness by mistake. 

I love examining the psychological side of prepping and strongly believe that it is the one thing that makes you truly prepared (as opposed to the accumulation of gear without a plan or knowing which are the emergencies that are the most likely to take place in your area).

Thanks for being here.

Welcome planning is the first stage of failure practice does not make perfect but it is a good way to increase your chances.

In my area all of the above tornadoes hurricanes floods heat to over 100 is common in winter ice storms are possible we have nuke plants near and we are also one of the main targets for anyone that does not like America. We have major industry chemical oil natural gas traffic gridlock 3 times a day and a mayor that is a democrat just south of here. then there are the local dope heads gang bangers bikers and a few versions of white supremacists, Spanish is spoken local as much as English 50 miles south there is every representation of  nation color religion ethnic group and some of the signs are not in English. it is all possible here and seldom do we have trouble beyond the norm are population is civil generally and well armed. and in a bad time I am just as certain it will go to hell just like anywhere else.I have seen more people run from emergencies than to one  that is common the world over once everyone figures it out they come together and try to fix it.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
