To be prepared for a crisis, every Prepper must establish goals and make long-term and short-term plans. In this column, the SurvivalBlog editors review their week’s prep activities and planned prep activities for the coming week. These range from healthcare and gear purchases to gardening, ranch improvements, bug out bag fine-tuning, and food storage. This is something akin to our Retreat Owner Profiles, but written incrementally and in detail, throughout the year. Note that as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

I’m again traveling out of state, to assist a elderly relative. So my entries in this column will probably be fairly brief and scant. Meanwhile, my lovely wife is looking after our ranch and livestock, so she will have far more to report.
Avalanche Lily Reports:
Well, there isn’t much to report. This week my projects consisted of homeschooling, and organizing our pantry hallway.
Now the girls and I are off the ranch, too, for a few days to take care of our grandsons. There was a need for their parents to be with parents-in-law (our son’s wife’s family) during a time of illness. So now it is a time for all of our immediate family to attend to our family needs in various places of the western USA. We’re glad we can lend a hand in difficult and very sad times. Thankfully, our neighbors are attending our large and small livestock, while we are away. At least it is fun to read to, feed, talk to, and play hide seek with the little guys. We don’t see them often enough, because of distance.
May you all have a very blessed and safe week.
– Avalanche Lily, Rawles
