Preparedness is not about being a hermit, a Rambo-like survivalist. And there might not be much time left for you to get one of your most critical assets in place--Your Community.

Awesome Projects for Preppers--by Guest Contributor Matt Stevens
While there are a lot of people whose prepping starts and stops with stockpiling supplies, there are many others who make it a lifestyle.

Meatball Soup Recipe -- By Kellene Bishop
One thing I love about my good friend Shawna is that she has a lot of good recipes that are easy, delicious and can easily be adapted to be made from your preparedness food pantry.

What You Need to Know About Lice-- By Guest Contributor Jackie K.
What I know now, compared to what I knew in January of 2010, are worlds apart. If you’ve never had the pleasure of being exposed to lice, count your blessing. I never experienced them as a child, nor did I know anyone who had. I do remember, in elementary school, these ladies coming into our...

Everyone has the right to defend themselves.
100% of ALL firearm “accidents” occur as a result of someone violating one of the four most critical safety rules in the ownership and use of a firearm. Firearms don’t kill people as the media would have us believe, any more than pencils are responsible for making spelling mistakes. Your ability to STOP a firearm...

I've been busy preparing for an education event that I'm taking part in this weekend. It's an event that I've attended (and taught at) regularly and I've not missed it over the past 4 years. I got to thinking today about how much I wanted to do to share this information with those that I know would love it and I just had a spur of the moment thought... Ready??

I hope that you've all enjoyed your holiday weekend and that you got to do something over the weekend that helped you become a little bit more independent. I know I did and so now I'm back and ready to work hard at Preparedness Pro.
