  1. I think we are as prepared as we can be. Our medical supplies are up to scratch and fairly comprehensive. We have two doctors in the extended family, both within a couple of hours drive from us. We have all the standard medical references for taking care of yourself. My wife ran a medical clinic in Africa. Of course it's always the thing you didn't think of that does you in.

  2. Harry,

    Wow, you and your family are very prepared. It's good to have family members who are doctors or know how to take care of a medical emergency.

    I've entered you in the give-away, good luck.

  3. We're as prepared as we can be, since local emergencies can range from power outage (rare) to major earthquake (common) or volcanic eruption with massive ash cloud (also rare - thankfully). We have bug-out/get-back-home bags, designated meeting points, walkie-talkies, first aid kits and firearms in all three vehicles.

    If the supply chain breaks down (Anchorage imports 95% of its food supply by ship from the Lower 48), we're good for approximately two months.

      You're prepared and have the capability of providing food with hunting, fishing and harvesting the wild berries and greens growing in that awesome place where you live.

  4. Since I am low income and 100% disabled, I have prepared the best I can. My hens will keep me in protein with their eggs. I would love the first aid kit.

    1. Linda,

      Hens are really good to have around for the protein and their eggs.

    1. PP,

      First off, I love your creepy ass cracker picture, lol....... You have a wonderful sense of humor!!!

      Your very prepared, and that is a wonderful thing. You'll have no worries my friend. Now you know I'm not going to ask for those trout, I'm going sneak in and steal them when you're not looking.

      Cats like trout!!!! There's plenty of fish around.

  6. Oh I think we are prepared but I honestly never know for sure we do not live in an area where anything really happens but as we all know that changes in a second. I cannot imagine living in areas where something seems to happen a lot. I admire the strength of those who do like you Sandy. No need to enter me. Take care, hope your Dad is OK. Hug B

    1. B,

      I would love to be up there where you live in that beautiful countryside. Things can change in a second but I'm sure you and your Hero are prepared. We always need to be prepared here for tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, and the economy.

      I know you said not to enter you in the give-away, but I have. So good luck!!

    1. HL,

      Can I adopt you as family, lol......

      I believe having the knowledge and ability to take care of both humans and critters medically is a major asset to being prepared.

      You're very welcome!!!!
      Watch for the give-away drawing :-)

  9. Sandy,
    We have been repairing our whole lives. We were preppers before that word ever existed. Even though we can never be ready for everything, we do our best and think we can last a while.
    The one thing I talk about when I am asked to do seminars is that prepping is only temporary. No matter how much you store it will run out in a worst case situation where you need to live off your preps for several years. If that is all you have then you will stave to death.
    In order to survive you have to be somewhat a homesteader to replenish what you are using. That way the preps you do have stored will last and can be used encase of a bad harvest.
    That is usually when someone will stand and tell me about their seed bank they have. I follow that up by asking them when do they plant this or that and how long does it take to harvest and even go as far as to ask them how they would put that food up for the winter. If you pull out the seed bank when the lights go out and start planting, you are too late Most just sit down.
    It is easy to buy 30 year shelf life food and store it away, it is another thing to collect rain water, grow and process your own vegetables, grains and meats. Until you reach that point, your not prepared.
    Sorry for the long comment but I go going there.
    So am I entered?

    1. MDR,

      You are so right my friend. So many people just think, oh I will pull out my seeds and start planting when something happens. You can't do that, you must have already planted long before a situation occurs and have your harvest put up for the future. Same goes with your water, meats, first aid, communications tools, security precautions......
      We both can go on and on regarding being prepared or having a working homestead.

      Yes, you are entered my friend!!! Good Luck!

  10. Sandy,
    I am learning to garden as part of our major preps. Fourth year and finally got enough tomatoes to freeze some sauce. I have gotten a harvest of peas for two years, however, they are eaten immediately by my now 5 year old grandson. Having lived through Hurricane Ike, where we found we could actually make coffee and cook on a small Chiminea (you know, those clay chimney firepit thingies) we decided we needed to prep for real. We have about 3 months of food supplies in our regular rotating pantry and are working on long terms storage. But with only an 1100 sq ft house (with five adults and a two year old) and a VERY tiny patio home yard, it is difficult to find storage space for any more. Am planning to relocate as soon as I can find something I can afford. Thanks for the time you put into your blog-informative AND humorous is the best combination. Please don't stop.

    1. Katy,

      Thank you, I'm pleased you find my blog informative and humorous at the same time. I will continue to blog however, there will be times when I slow down on my posts to take care of my Dad who is ill.

      Congratulations on being able to freeze sauce from your home grown tomatoes. One of the funny things about gardening, family.....they love to eat the fresh stuff before you can do anything with it. I have that same problem when it comes to my strawberries and carrots.

      We live in a very small home ourselves, and you would be surprised where things have been stored for long time storage.
      Keep up the good work, and continue learning about gardening.

      I've entered you in the give-away, good luck!

  11. I would probably starve to death and have to burn my furniture. So sad.

  12. Seriously, I could improve my preparedness. I have medications, walkie talkies, some ammo, chickens, dried foods and canned goods. We have wood burning stoves and first aid. Need to update my list. This is a good reminder. Oh year, I have unplanted seeds, too. I know that they wont grow if not in the ground, but I will eat them, the seeds. Just kidding.
    Blessings,
    Susie

    1. Susie,

      It sounds like your doing pretty good with being prepared. Everyone needs to continuously update and circulate their supplies. I don't know if I would eat my seeds. I have been known for eating weeds though, lol......

      I've entered you in the give-away, good luck!

    2. Well, I could sprout the seed! You know it is always a good reminder to update all our supplies. Thanks for doing just that!
      Blessings

    1. Country Life,

      A lot of people don't think about prescription meds, it's good that you've thought ahead.
