10 Weeks to Preparedness

I’ve had this sitting in a tab long enough that I’ve forgotten where I found it.

It’s been about 13 or 14 years since I wrote this under my since retired ‘nom de guerre’, and commenting on a blog post recently, CA at Western Rifle Shooter’s Association asked me if I’d mind updating it.  This is a good base plan for folks you might know just waking up to the fact that things are spinning faster in the vortex than ever before, and this might be the best chance for them to get themselves in gear.  Feel free to add or take away as your situation and local area conditions may require.  Understand something, though:  You have a VERY small window; it may even be too late should something happen that accelerates the current environment like a JATO (Jet Assisted Take Off) rocket on a C130.  So, if you’re just getting started, you need to act now, as in today.  Not next week.  Not in two weeks.  You may not HAVE two weeks.


I’ve read it and it’s not bad at all. It presumes that you have available time and funds, though. That said, if you haven’t started down the path of preparedness and resilience, you could have a worse roadmap, and you may as well spend those FRNs on good stuff while you can still get it. There are other gems in the comments, so don’t miss those.
