A New Food Storage Calculator
The current food storage calculator on my site is a bit crufty. It’s pretty straight forward, but makes quite a few assumptions.
I’m looking to provide a more flexible calculator in general. Right now I’m fleshing out the different features I want to have. If you’ve got any thoughts on what would go into a good food storage calculator, please let me know!
Why Do We Prepare?
We all have troubles communicating with people in our lives about the need to prepare. Sometimes it is a spouse, other times a sibling or parent, or maybe even just a friend.
In any case, these are folks that we care about. And we want them to buy in at some level to the reasons why we do what we do.
So this year I’ll be putting together a seminar (or maybe two or three) that run online and are targeted at folks that aren’t already bought into survival and preparedness. The goal is a gentle introduction to the whys and wherefores, the hows and the whats, with absolutely zero panic or paranoia.
This is one of those things that will be completely free of charge. It’s one of the things I’m doing this year to reach as many people as I possibly can.
Preparedness 101 Classes
Quite a few of you have told me you’re interested in having introductory level classes on various preparedness topics. So I’m working on classes that fit that bill.
Some of them will be free of charge, some of them will be for a nominal fee. Right now I plan to have video courses that you can watch whenever you want. They’ll include download options so you can download the video to your computer, or if you want just an audio version, you’ll get that too.
At the moment I’ve got half a dozen topics lined up, with Food and Water Storage at the top of the list. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to see, let me know.
Tracking Your Preps
One problem we have, and I know quite a few of you also have, is keeping track of your preps, as well as planning out how to expand them.
I’m working on a system that will make this easy for you. It may be a while before it’s ready, and I’ll definitely talk about it more as it moves along.
But I wanted to let you all know about it.
