A little off topic, and one that won't sink readiness. We want to welcome "Emergency Essentials" as the Premier Advertiser on Survival In America. They provide great products from books, emergency kits, and general all around survival tools. We hope you will give them a look see as you prepare for any event.
This week we are talking about Loose Lips Sink Readiness. While some of us are very proud of what we are creating in our homes and other locations. The biggest thing we brag about is how our family is going to be able to survive anything that comes.
In an emergency, remember those that you bragged to? They are knocking at your door. They are going to be wanting what you have and will get it one way or the other. Our wonderful suburbia home won't withstand the assault, and neither will you.
While it is good to be prepared and to give talks at the local library on being prepared. What happens when it is you these folks who did not prepare are coming after. I know this is not a popular thing to say, but here it comes.
Shut Up or Put Up. I don't want to sound uncaring or what ever it is you want to think about me for this topic. If you are prepared and talking about it, others are going to be beating a path to your door once things start hitting the fan.
Are you proud of your cabin you built with all the emergency supplies that only you are suppose to know about, except for the 15 builders that were there, the 20 neighbor kids and parents you bragged to, and the delivery persons who unloaded all the supplies at the cabin.
If you are going to build something, find one or two families and work together to build what you 3 will need and build it RIGHT. In an upcoming article I am going to talk to you about finding that perfect place to prepare to.
If your family's survival is of the utmost importance to you. Shut your trap and smile when folks are talking. Tell them to take a look at this nuts site about Survival in America. Maybe that will put them where they need to go.
All joking aside. This is not a game. This is REAL LIFE. You are also playing with real lives, that of your family. Never underestimate the will of survival when you open your mouth to brag to the neighbors next time. Maybe your wife is right, as far as the neighbors know. We don't need a stinking emergency plan except to get home. But make sure your wife and kids understand the importance of keeping this inside of your immediate family. Sorry daughter, not even to your boyfriend.
