New Year’s resolutions to be better prepared.

Podcast episode 122921

Published on December 29th, 2021

In this episode I want to talk about putting rubber on the road, and making plans to getting better prepared for the new year. At the risk of sounding like an alarmist, there are tons of factors around us creating a general sense of doom and gloom. Many people repeatedly ask us about how this whole thing gets started, how do you begin to construct our preparedness resources store without breaking your bank. While some would have us believe that this part is where we need an expensive consultant to tell us what and when we need.

Let’s get this party started, by looking at the old mail bag.


Bonnie from Kentucky asks “Where do I start?”

Todd from South Carolina asks “Can you talk about some basics?”

Edward from New York asks “Can you enlighten us as to some basic things to consider in our go bags?”

Lloyd from Oregon asks “Are there online courses that I could take to get more up to speed on survival??”

Finally, Micah from Idaho asks “Are go bags really regional? Can I relocate with a bag and be ok?”

Great questions to all those who sent them in. If I didn’t get to your question, sorry about that, but don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll touch on this topic again as its really relevant to a requirement for survival.

Before we get after it today, I’d like to make sure that, for those of you who seek peace and harmony, or hep in making sense of life, be sure to check out the Alaskan Ulfhednar podcast at After 30 years of spiritual searching and discovery, I have arrived home. Check out my theories of finding peace and harmony, with a true understanding of co-existence. Some great stuff for you there. 


All right, let’s bust this bad boy out. We’ll start with the obvious. Where are we with our first aid kits? Obviously being prepared means we’re around to make the necessary decisions. Starting with the obvious, we’ll cover the very basics with our “Fab Five”. 

Again, let’s consider the air we breathe. 

Plans for our housing and temperature control.



As always my friends, I am honored and humbled that you have chosen to spend this time listening to me. I deeply appreciate each and every one of you. Being prepared provides each of us with the confidence for successful survival. We mentioned before, and will certainly say again, that survival is a 90% mental task, but that 10% of physical resources is critically important.. By having a confidence and discipline, we can and will survive. Remember to be strong, be safe, and keep your head on a swivel… Peace
