NOAA Weather Radio or battery-powered or hand-crank radio to receive weather reports and emergency information. Special supplies (such as medications) for seniors, family members with disabilities, infants, young children and pets.
Volunteers stuff gloves, scarves, toques, toiletries and more into dufflebags during The Bargains Group’s Project Winter Survival event on Saturday.
Project Winter Survival, now part of national charity Engage and Change, saw 3,000 kits assembled and ready for distribution, said The Bargains Group president and CEO Jody Steinhauer, who founded Project Winter Survival.
Now in its 15th year, Project Winter Survival packages kits to be given to more than 190 social service agencies for hand out, including Canadian Red Cross, Covenant House, Out of the Cold programs, and the Salvation Army. Last year, Project Winter Survival expanded to Vancouver, and now hopes to reach all major cities in need from coast to coast, Steinhauer said. A $25 donation helps sponsor Project Winter Survival kits, and Engage and Change issues tax receipts for all financial donations.
Though kits have been assembled, Steinhauer said financial contributions are always needed and appealed for donations. To understand ourselves it is important to understand our ancestors, and a part of them, and their heritage, lives on in us today. To the world the American Indians seemed like a forgotten people when the English colonists first arrived and began to occupy their lands. I want to give special thanks to my cousin, Mary Hilliard, for her assistance and encouragement in researching and preparing this book. Wherever possible I have tried to find at least two sources for the genealogical data, but this has not always been possible. I have also found Franklin Elewatum Bearce's history, Who Our Forefathers Really Were, A True Narrative of Our White and Indian Ancestors, to be very helpful. It is certainly possible that such a record may contain errors, but it is also very fortunate that we have access to this record as it presents firsthand knowledge of some of the individuals discussed in this book.
8 Newcomba€? Cpt. Sometime before the colonial period, the Iroquoian tribes began moving from the southern plains eastward across the Mississippi River and then northeasterly between the Appalachians and the Ohio River Valley, into the Great Lakes region, then through New York and down the St. Though they were neighbors and had similar skin color, these two groups of Indians were as dissimilar as the French and the Germans in Europe.
Federations, as well as the individual tribes, were fluid organizations to the extent that the sachem was supported as long as he had the strength to maintain his position. Belonging to a federation meant that an annual tribute had to be sent to support the great sachem and his household, warriors had to be sent if he called for a given number to go to war, and strictest obedience and fidelity was demanded. Some of these federations had as many as thirty member tribes supporting their Great Sachem, although many of these tribes would be counted by more than one sachem, as any tribe that was forced to pay tribute was considered as part of that Great Sachem's federation. Any member of the society who dishonored himself, in anyway, was no longer worthy of the respect of his people. When viewing the typical Indians of America, one would describe them as having a dark brown skin.
They wore relatively little clothing, especially in summer, although the women were usually somewhat more modest than the men.
The English resented the fact that the Indians wouldn't convert to Christianity as soon as the missionaries came among them. The various tribes of New England spoke basically the same language and could understand each other well. There are many words used commonly in our language today that were learned from these New England Indians: Squaw, wigwam, wampum, pow-wow, moccasin, papoose, etc.
Today there is little doubt that prior to Columbus's voyage, the Norsemen sailed to the coast of North America early in the eleventh century.
We do not have a record of all of the European contact and influence on the Indians in the early years of exploration because the greatest exposure came from the early European fishermen and trappers who kept no records of their adventures, as opposed to the explorers. In 1524, Giovanni da Verrazano wrote the first known description of a continuous voyage up the eastern coast of North America.
As the fur trade became increasingly more important to Europeans, they relied heavily on the Indians to do the trapping for them.
Another problem with which the Indians had to contend was the White man's diseases for which they had no tolerance nor immunity. In the spring of 1606, Gorges sent Assacumet and Manida, as guides on a ship with Captain Henry Chalons, to New England to search for a site for a settlement.
In 1614, Captain John Smith, who had already been involved in the colony at James Town, Virginia, was again commissioned to take two ships to New England in search of gold, whales or anything else of value. Dermer wanted to trade with the local Indians of the Wampanoag Federation and asked Squanto if he would guide them and be their interpreter. Derner was given safe passage through Wampanoag land by Massasoit and soon returned to his ship. When the Pilgrims left England in the Mayflower, their stated intent was to establish a settlement on the mouth of the Hudson River, at the site of present day New York City. The Pilgrims returned to the Mayflower and, after many days of exploration, found a more suitable location. On March 16, 1621 the Pilgrims were surprised by a tall Indian who walked boldly into the plantation crying out, "Welcome! The Pilgrims gestured for Massasoit to join them in their fort but, he in turn, gestured for them to come to him.
When the amenities were ended, the English brought out a treaty they had prepared in advance, which specified that the Wampanoags would be allies to the English in the event of war with any other peoples and that they would not harm one-another; and that when any Indians came to visit the plantation they would leave their weapons behind. After the ceremonies were ended, Governor Carver escorted Massasoit to the edge of the settlement and waited there for the safe return of Winslow.
Part of Massasoit's willingness to make an alliance with the English must be credited to his weakened condition after suffering from the recent epidemics which left his followers at about half of the strength of his enemies, the Narragansetts. In June of 1621, about three months after the signing of the treaty, a young boy from the Colony was lost in the woods. When the English could not find the boy, Governor William Bradford, (who replaced John Carver, who died in April) sent to Massasoit for help in locating the boy.
That summer Governor Bradford sent Edward Winslow and Stephen Hopkins, with Squanto, to Pokanoket (Massasoit's own tribe, on the peninsula where Bristol, R.I.
From this trip of Winslow's, we learn more about the daily life of the Indians in this area. Massasoit urged his guests to stay longer but they insisted they must return to Plymouth before the Sabbath. Less than a month following this visit, Massasoit sent Hobomock, a high ranking member of the Wampanoag Council, to Plymouth to act as his ambassador and to aid the Pilgrims in whatever way they needed. Hobomock and Squanto were surprised at what they heard, and quietly withdrew from the camp to Squanto's wigwam but were captured there before they could get to Plymouth.
Although the Narragansetts and Wampanoags were historical enemies and continually feuding over land, they did not usually put hostages of high rank to death. Normally, treason was punishable by death and Massasoit would certainly have been justified in executing Corbitant for his part in the plot against him but, for some reason, Massasoit complete forgave him.
Their first harvest was not a large one but the Pilgrims were.happy to have anything at all.
During the winter, a rivalry developed between Squanto and Hobomock, the two Indians who now lived continually at Plymouth. According to the treaty he had signed with Plymouth, they were to turn over to him any Indians guilty of offense. In June and July, three ships arrived at Plymouth with occupants who expected to be taken in and cared for.
In the winter of 1622-23, Governor William Bradford made trips to the various Indian tribes around Cape Cod to buy food to keep the Pilgrims from starvation. Next, Standish went to Cummaquid (Barnstable, MA.) where Iyanough was Sachem of the Mattachee Tribe.
Thinking that Massasoit was dead, they went instead to Pocasset, where they sought Corbitant who, they were sure, would succeed Massasoit as the next Great Sachem.
Winslow describes their arrival, where the Indians had gathered so closely that it took some effort to get through the crowd to the Great Sachem. Since the Pow-wow's medicine had not produced any results, Winslow asked permission to try to help the ailing Sachem. Their second Thanksgiving was combined with the wedding celebration of Governor Bradford and Alice Southworth. Because of Massasoit's honored position, more was recorded of him than of other Indians of his time.
Massasoit most likely became Sachem of the Pokanokets, and Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, between 1605-1615.
The second son of Massasoit was Pometacomet, (alias Pometacom, Metacom, Metacomet, Metacomo or Philip.) Philip was born in 1640, at least 16 years younger than Alexander.
The third son, Sunconewhew, was sent by his Father to learn the white man's ways and to attend school at Harvard. When his two oldest sons were old enough to marry, Massasoit made the arrangements for them to marry the two daughters of the highly regarded Corbitant, Sachem of the Pocasset tribe. The tribes of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, as well as some of the Nipmuck tribes of central Massachusetts, looked to him for Military defense and leadership. Following the plagues of 1617, which reduced his nation so drastically and left his greatest enemy, the Narragansetts of Rhode Island, so unaffected, Massasoit was in a weakened position.
In 1632, following a battle with the Narragansetts in which he regained the Island of Aquidneck, Massasoit changed his name to Ousamequin (Yellow feather) sometimes spelled Wassamegon, Oosamequen, Ussamequen. In 1637, the English waged an unprovoked war of extermination against the Pequot Federation of Connecticut, which shocked both the Wampanoags and the Narragansetts so much that both Nations wanted to avoid hostilities with the feared English.
After hearing of the death of his good friend, Edward Winslow in 1655, Massasoit realized that his generation was passing away.


As Massasoit's health began to decline, he turned more and more of the responsibilities over to Alexander who was a very capable leader and who was already leading the warriors on expedition against some of their enemies.
Massasoit was succeeded, as Great Sachem, by his son Alexander, assisted by his brother, Philip.
The younger generation saw, in Alexander, a strong, new leader who could see the danger of catering to the English. Both Philip and Weetamoo were very vocal in their condemnation of the English and word of their accusations soon reached Plymouth.
Together, Philip and Canonchet reasoned that it would take a great deal of preparation for such a war. This is a great way to test out your preps without the added weight of an emergency situation. Setting goals might be the most important because if it’s in your face you are more likely to accomplish it. Activities With and For Kids Getting your children interested in prepping is easy when you do things that they enjoy. SPP 144 First Aid Supplies, How Much is Too Much?For those of you who don’t know, we have two horses.
The Waiting List: Ideally we would all love to join the best prepping group out there, but they are the best because they don’t just accept anyone. This might be the most feasible option for anyone wanting to have a prepping group, and because of this we talked quite a bit about forming prepper groups in the podcast. Finding people to join your prepping group online might be the easiest way, Like this article?I get this question all the time, and these questions have seemed to increase in the last couple of weeks, so I decided to tackle the subject of forming or joining prepper groups. When you are prepping, you will focus on many different areas, with the main area of focus being food, water, shelter, and weapons. This is actually taken from the five steps of grieving, but grieving does not only have to be about losing someone you love.
On the evening of 23rd of March we will be doing a live webinar with Paul the CEO of Sun Oven International. There are 2 parts to operational security, how you handle yourself today, and how you handle situations when the S hits the fan.
If things get bad, and you have prepared, you can bet on it that the government will be looking out for their best interests, not yours. Although it may seem like the best plan to go it alone, eventually you will need the help of others in order to be successful with your long term prepping.
High-energy food, such as dried fruit or candy, and food requiring no cooking or refrigeration are best.
Each kit is filled with basic supplies to help those living on the streets stay warm during cold winter months. 25 by representatives from homeless shelters and frontline service agencies to immediately distribute to those in need. At first I was very skeptical of this record as it was a family tradition passed down for many generations. She was very fond of her Grandmother, Freelove, knew all about her and stated on several occasions that Freelove's Mother was Sarah Mauwee, daughter of Joseph Mauwee, Sachem of Choosetown, and not Tabitha Rubbards (Roberts).
Massasoit was the Sachem of this tribe, as well as being the Great Sachem over the entire Wampanoag Federation, which consisted of over 30 tribes in central and southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Welcome, Englishmen!" It was a cold and windy day, yet this Indian, who introduced himself as Samoset, Sachem of a tribe in Monhegan Island, Maine, wore only moccasins and a fringed loin skin. Learning how to become self sufficient and living without any outside help from the government.
We still have about 4 weeks before we can start planting outside, but that doesn’t mean I can be ready to go once all danger of frost has passed us.
It’s also a great way to open the conversation about prepping with family members that might not be completely on board.Be careful how you approach this though.
It’s actually easier to get small children interested than older children because older children have already formed some opinions.Doing things like the boy scouts and girl scouts do are fun ways to open the dialog with children about how there is more to life than cell phones and video games. Like the saying goes “out of sight, out of mind”Don’t make these goals too extreme, make them attainable. Plastic storage bins are an excellent way to keep your extra first aid supplies together in one place.
I have been a little hesitant about this because there isn’t really a perfect solution, and quite a bit that goes into prepper groups other than what skills people have.If you have never given this a second thought, you might want to read this article that Lisa wrote about what to look for with prepper groups. The grieving process can be related to everything, because it is how you grieve no matter the situation.
None of us ever know what is going to happen or when, so being flexible in an emergency situation is a vital part of being prepared.
In the show we talked about how this is a double edged sward because you need people on your side, but giving out too much information could make you vulnerable.With operational security comes situational awareness.
You never know who was using your stuff when you were away, so have wipes stored at your desk that you can wipe down everything before you get to work. She obtained her copy of Zerviah Newcomb's Chronical from Zerviah's original diary, in the hands of Josiah 3rd himself. Stay up to date with the latest prepper news and information like bugging out and bugging in.
You can categorize each list, or just make a huge list of what you would like to accomplish over the summer. If someone in the house is completely against this you might want to shorten the length, or think about not shutting everything down at first. Getting them involved with your daily prepping chores also makes them feel involved and important. Set some small goals, some tougher goals and then some stretch goals that are going to be hard, but realistic with a little hard work. Like this article?When it comes to prepping, the old adage two is one and one is none comes to mind. Facing confrontation, having enough supplies for a multitude of different scenarios, and always having a plan B, and a backup plan to that plan, is what makes you a prepper.Critical thinking means that when you hit that road block you don’t just give up, you need to have the survival attitude and figure out an alternative option. The definition of situational awareness is having the mindset in which you are constantly evaluating your surroundings for dangerous situations and any potential threats to your safety. There is already a law in place that allows the government to take your stuff “for the greater good” in the event of a national disaster.If the SHTF, you can bet that the government will rationalize coming for your preps. So during the winter I was plotting and planning my garden beds, and how I will use them this year. By planning now, you will have a working list of projects to choose from throughout the spring and summer months.
This is extremely accurate, with maybe one exception when it comes to first aid supplies that you should have when preparing for the unknown.When you think you have enough medical and first aid supplies, multiply that by about 10 and you should be good for an unexpected emergency.
Road blocks, loss of supplies, stress and emotions could all change the dynamics of our situation, and we need to be prepared for that.
Even is a situation where the government seems nonexistent, they can come back in the picture and say “we’re back, and we’re here to help”Do what you can to plan for this.
Bearce's Great-aunt, Mary Caroline, lived with Josiah III and Freelove Canfield Bearce for several years, listened to their ancestral stories, and made her own personal copy of Zerviah's diary supplement. Lawrence to what is now known as Lake Champlain where his party killed several Mohawks in a show of European strength and musketry.
Like this article?When the time changes, I start to get antsy for the longer sunny days that will be coming. If you think you have everything you could possible need, and have never had an emergency to use it for, trust me, you will need more.Unfortunately for me, I actually had a medical emergency recently that I had to put my emergency medical kit into use. And about a week ago he got into the worst trouble yet.I am not sure what happened, he got spooked somehow and put his back leg through the back of his stall.
Or, what if you have to move, or life happens, and what do you do when your prepping plans hit a road block and get derailed?Even if we have tried to think about every hypothetical disaster scenario the we could possibly face, the odds are the situation won’t go as we planned.
After being cooped up in the house all winter long, there is just something so satisfying about being able to stay outside without a coat on that motivates me to get busy.For those of us that live in cold weather states we get a little cabin fever this time of year, and also a little anxious to get out and get things done. In an SHTF event everything going according to plan will be the exception, not the rule.This is why it’s important to have a plan A, plan, B and plan C. If this means you have extra food and supplies in case the government men come knocking on your door, do it.
Even if you live in one of the warmer states, these tips will be useful to keep your preparedness plans on track.This week we talked about springtime prepping and planning, and how to stay motivated throughout the summer months.
This even applies today if we need to bandage them up until medical help is available.SPP 144 First Aid Supplies, How Much is Too Much?For those of you who don’t know, we have two horses. And to make it more complicated, these plans need to intertwine so you can change course at a moment’s notice.
There are some things you just can’t do in the winter months, so it’s important to take advantage of the good weather while you can.SPP145 Springtime Prepping and PlanningGet Outside and ExerciseThis is really easy to do in April because we are all chomping at the bit to get outside.
I quickly grabbed my headlamp and went outside to investigate what was happening.I pointed the light at the horses, and Ethan (aka Dennis) had blood gushing down his back leg.
If all you want is a group of people to learn from and talk about prepping, don’t join a group that requires a big commitment.Your Resume: Think of this like a job interview, what do you have to offer? Use the spring and summer months to their fullest by going camping, working in the yard and even taking walks with your bug out bag on.We talk about being “farmer strong” later in the article, and we need to be physically ready to handle life without all the modern conveniences. I grabbed my equine first aid kit out of the barn, and proceeded to use EVERYTHING in the kit to create a compression dressing to stop the bleeding.I went through three rolls of vet wrap, three abd pads, and a roll of duct tape, and there was still blood coming through the dressing.
Attention to detail is critical to our survival, and the time to prepare is now, because once the game starts all bets are off.SPP 141 When your Prepping Plans Hit a Road Block Part 1Critical ThinkingThe most important quality, in my opinion, to a life of preparedness is being flexible. He further told them that Massasoit, the Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, was at Nemasket (a distance of about 15 miles) with many of his Counselors.
If someone in the house is completely against this you might want to shorten the length, or think about not shutting everything down at first.Activities With and For KidsGetting your children interested in prepping is easy when you do things that they enjoy.


Thankfully I have a vet who is available 24-7, and about 45 minutes later, he got to us.The horse managed to gash his leg and cut through his saphenous vein, which is why there was such a large amount of blood. This article from On Point Preparedness talks about why it’s tough to keep a group together.Don’t be too hasty to make your decisions, It’s going to take time to get a feel for someone.
This is a little gross, but the bold was actually squirting out every time his heart pumped.The good news is horses have a lot more blood than humans. Road blocks, loss of supplies, stress and emotions could all change the dynamics of our situation, and we need to be prepared for that.Operational SecurityThere are 2 parts to operational security, how you handle yourself today, and how you handle situations when the S hits the fan. Getting them involved with your daily prepping chores also makes them feel involved and important.Goal SettingSetting goals might be the most important because if it’s in your face you are more likely to accomplish it. So, just how many supplies would I need to have on hand to deal with whatever would come our way?The answer is; much more than I have right now!The good news is emergency’s don’t happen on a daily basis. Prepping encompasses so many different areas that you are bound to find someone interested in bushcraft, First aid, gun clubs, ham radio etc.
The definition of situational awareness is having the mindset in which you are constantly evaluating your surroundings for dangerous situations and any potential threats to your safety.The GovernmentIf things get bad, and you have prepared, you can bet on it that the government will be looking out for their best interests, not yours.

And a lot of the first aid supplies that are a part of a good medical kit have very long expiration dates. This is also important because in a SHTF situation you are going to be stuck with them being next door whether you like it or not, and if they know you, they are less likely to take advantage of you.Online PreppingFinding people to join your prepping group online might be the easiest way, but it is also the riskiest.
As with anything online we want to be careful about what information we share, and as preppers we are extra careful about it.Personally, I am more worried about people than the government. By planning now, you will have a working list of projects to choose from throughout the spring and summer months.The GardenRight know the garden is taking all of my focus. I know I’m on a few lists anyway, but a person with bad intentions, and my personal information can be more dangerous. Make a fake profile and don’t add your address or phone number.This article from the Survival Blog give a few options for finding groups (or people) online. Pay attention to what is going on in the world around you and have a plan.Being the Lone WolfAlthough it may seem like the best plan to go it alone, eventually you will need the help of others in order to be successful with your long term prepping. To some this may seem like a no brainer, while others may have issues trusting other people, especially in a disaster situation.But you have to get over this aversion to others. Cleaning out the dead and decaying plant material as well as beautifying the garden itself are things I can do now while waiting. So you can keep adding to your kit over time in order to have a lot of supplies.But once you start accumulating more and more first aid supplies, you will need a storage plan to keep it all.
You never know who is on the other end of the conversation.There are two aspects of prepper groups we need to think about, the groups we can join now, and the groups we will have in an emergency situation. Plastic storage bins are an excellent way to keep your extra first aid supplies together in one place.If you have livestock, you will need to incorporate their first aid supplies in to your plan as well.
Develop relationships with likeminded people, and find out how your skills and their skills can complement each other. Also, our garage gets COLD, so I don’t really like working out there when the temperature outside is below zero. It is like anything we do, and change is inevitable.The more you work on it, the better you will become, so do it in baby steps. If you feel better prepping alone, do this for a while, but then begin putting yourself out there.
But I have to say, giving a HUGE injection to my horse every day for 5 days proved to be too much for me and the horse, so I was left to use the powdered oral antibiotic, which is a sulfa based drug.2 tubes of silvasorb gelAnd then that made me start thinking about my ‘people’ medical supplies, and how much do I have, vs. You can do the same with family members, and continue to grow our network.The most important thing to understand is that you cannot do this alone, there really is safety in numbers, and we are a social animal. Instead of spending a lot of money to go really far, or making one vacation plan, we choose to explore the beautiful country we live in.We will plan smaller weekend trips to places we can drive. Like it or not, you do need other people.All Tools and No KnowledgeYou have probably heard this a hundred times, but what would you do if you had nothing?
But it is better to have the stuff, and never need to use it, kind of like an insurance policy.
We need to have the ability to improvise, and the only way to do that is to understand the complete process.It’s great to have a good water filter, but if you don’t understand how water filtration works, you won’t be able to build your own if necessary.
So now, we can go places and basically bring our hotel with us.You also don’t need to really go that far away from home. Do a weekend nature walk, learn about what is in your area as far game, plants, and resources. But I would rather be prepared and have it, and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
Or you can take a weekend class in firearm training, or outdoor skills.Rotating PrepsAs the summer will go on, our long term food storage and home canned goods will need to be rotated as we add to it with freshly canned vegetables jams and fruits. I will continue to bulk up all of my medical kits, and will most likely add things that most people will not need, such as needles, and IV start kits, but that is because I have been trained how to use it.One thing you may have noticed I did not add to any of my first aid kits is suturing equipment. So before we start canning like fools, it is good to know what we have, what we love, and what we have plenty of. I am of the opinion if I don’t have the training to use something, I am not going to wing it, and when it comes to suturing, I do not have the experience so at this time, it is not a part of my medical kit.
This also goes into my gardening plan, so knowing what we have helps.Now there are some things we won’t have a lot of control over, such as blueberries, apples and pears, because we plant those once, and they keep producing every year.
You can listen to the full podcast when Sara publishes it next week.The post When your Prepping Plans Hit a Road Block Part 1 appeared first on Survivalist Prepper. Going back to my horse story, the vet came out three times in attempts to suture the huge gash closed, but the horse would not cooperate, and the window of opportunity passed, so we decided to leave it open, and let it heal by secondary intention (meaning, no sutures). So learning new ways to use the prolific fruits and vegetables will add new recipes, as well as making us be able to use what we have every single year.This is also a good time to start or add to your long term food storage with items from Legacy Farms, or Augauson Farms.
Yes, it will take longer to heal, and yes, there is a risk of infection, but that just means I have to be more diligent in caring for the wound until it matures and heals. Dedicate a small amount of money each paycheck to increasing your long term food storage, just in case.Farmer StrongThis one is my favorite! This is something I am willing to do in order to have a good outcome.I feel the same way in regard to people. I don’t know about you, but I HATE working out, or I should say I hate working out just for the sake of working out.
However, I do LOVE being outside, and beautifying my yard, and playing in the garden, and working with my horses.
So yes it will be a more difficult task, and take longer to heal, but sometimes that is the better way, especially if there is something in the wound (like debris, or contaminants) that the body will help to push out. So instead of going to a gym, I work out while I am doing things that will benefit me, or my family.For example, my daughter bought me a Fitbit for a Christmas present.
If it is sutured closed, you could potentially be trapping the contaminant inside of the body.When in doubt, don’t do it.
And I have a bunch of people that I compete with on a weekly basis to see who can get the most steps. I like it, because it makes exercising fun and adds some competition to the mix, I love it!
How you choose to handle a situation like this is up to you.Another thing to think about, if you have never witnessed an emergency happen, attend some classes and get some training.
But on the days where I basically only walk at work, I have to push myself harder than I do when I am doing chores around the house.
No it won’t stop emergencies from happening, but you will be more prepared to handle a situation should it occur.
Typically I will get around 10,000 steps a day, and I have to really work to make that happen. Then if something does happen, hopefully your training will kick in, and make it easier to handle the emergency.Get the training BEFORE something happens. But on the weekends just by working in the yard or garden, I will get around 18,000 steps a day! That is huge!And have you ever worked a piece of land for a garden, carried chicken or horse feed, or dug some fence postholes?
Have drills, and run through a scenario to get your hands in there so you will have a plan of what you would do in an emergency situation.You will never be prepared for every scenario, but the more you plan and practice and learn, the better prepared you will be if something happens.The post First Aid Supplies, How Much is Too Much? If you make a concerted effort to do this type of work on a daily basis not only will you get in shape, but you will get strong…farmer strong!So make an effort to get your work out by doing things that have the added benefit of making you more self-reliant.
You will get in shape in a fun way, and you will be saving money, you don’t need a gym membership to get in shape, just do things to benefit your home, garden or property and use the money you would have used for the gym, and put it back into your ‘homestead’.Food Forestry, aka PermacultureInstead of planting flowers in beds, plant food! Now it was not a human medical emergency, but it was an emergency nonetheless.I know most of you don’t have horses, but the reason I am writing this is because of the lessons I learned, and how it applies to an emergency situation for humans as well. If you do plant flowers, be sure to use flowers that are beneficial to the bees, as well as having medicinal benefits such as lavender, peppermint or Echinacea.If you are planting a tree or shrub, plant fruit trees and shrubs. Put things on your list that you don’t necessarily have to do, but would do if you had the time.
It is pretty inspiring to look back through lists that I thought were pipe dreams, and they are now a part of my everyday life. So inspire yourself, make some lists, and get planning for what you would love to be able to do this summer. You are only limited by yourself, so stop limiting yourself, and just do it!The post Springtime Prepping and Planning appeared first on Survivalist Prepper.
