This is a blog about common sense preparedness for sensible individuals. I blog about how you can prepare for anything from a minor power outage to the end of the world as we know it. And the nice thing is, you can follow my advice without your relatives referring to you as "crazy old uncle Rufus." I live a normal life with an everyday job, and a wife and two kids; but I enjoy the security of knowing that I don't have to have the job, and that I can take care of the wife and kids if disaster should strike. I didn't arrive at this lifestyle overnight. I've been developing it for over 25 years. If you, like me, want to be prepared; I hope that my blog can help you on your journey.
