To be prepared for a crisis, every Prepper must establish goals and make long-term and short-term plans. Steadily, we work on meeting our prepping goals. In this column, the SurvivalBlog editors review their week’s prep activities. They also often share their planned prep activities for the coming week. These range from healthcare and gear purchases to gardening, property improvements, and food storage. This is something akin to our Retreat Owner Profiles, but written incrementally and in detail, throughout the year. We always welcome you to share your own successes and wisdom in the Comments. Let’s keep busy and be ready!
I was so very busy writing this week that I scarcely stepped outdoors. I don’t enjoy being under a contracted manuscript deadline, but it does keep me focused. And, of course, it helps pays the bills.
I did get away one day to attend a birthday party for one of our grandkids. That was a two hour drive, which is considered “fairly close by” by local standards, here in The American Redoubt.
I also had to make a trip to town, to mail another pile of Priority Mail flat rate boxes. This was fulfilling orders that I had received in my HK Magazines and Parts Extravaganza, over at The FALFiles. All 540 magazines and all of the parts kits have sold out. There are now just a few HK91/93 parts and accessories left: Several A.R.M.S. Swan scope mounts, one Namibian contact handguard, one 1,200-meter rear sight, one complete “Sanitized” G3 full auto Bolt Carrier Assembly, and a few odds & ends. I have these all priced right, to sell quickly. Oh, and I’m covering the cost of postage.
Avalanche Lily Reports:
This week has been incredibly busy and so will be this weekend. So a few quick words for you… We enjoyed seeing our grandchildren very much this past weekend. This week I was able to mow the orchard before the rains came. The grass had grown to two feet tall! Weeding the main garden beds was the big chore of the week. I made a trip to town for food stock up. I also needed to buy graduation party stuff for Eloise’s celebration. We are are celebrating along with a few other home schooled graduating friends. Our young lady has grown up, and a very fine young lady she turned out to be! Lots of emotions in that department.
I will give a more detailed report next week.
May you all have a very blessed and safe week.
– Jim and Avalanche Lily, Rawles
