The Ready Store’s Children’s Charity

Received the following note from Prepography Advertiser The Ready Store where they’ve been donating a can of food to children’s charities for every can of storage food they sell.  Congratulations to The Ready Store and keep up the good works! “We just wanted to drop a quick note wishing you and yours a merry Christmas! We are constantly amazed by our wonderful customers and want to thank you for the great generosity in participating in our Can-for-Can Program. With your help, you’ve donated an estimated 40,000 meals for hungry children across the globe!” The prepper movement gets a bad rap sometimes from the ill informed who sometimes call us ‘selfish‘ and think that we’re only interested in ourselves…but I’ve found preppers and the businesses that cater to them to be extremely generous in every way imaginable.

Prepping Isn’t for Doomsday

Those Pesky Mayans! SURPRISE…WE’RE STILL HERE! So much for the predictions of stone age peoples…next time maybe we should ask the ancient druids. Seriously though…maybe there will be some good deals on preps like there were after the millennium scare as the fair-weather (maybe we should call them foul-weather) preppers dump their preps for pennies on the dollar. Remember, prepping isn’t for doomsday…it’s for every day! Keep on prepping, Andrew FacebookPinterestGoogleRedditTwitterTumblrEmailPrintPocketMoreLinkedInLike this:Like...

Firearm Discussions Insensitive?

I’ve received several comments from Prepography readers regarding the ‘insensitivity’ of including firearms and firearm accessories in my Prepper Days of Christmas series.  These readers believe that in light of the recent murders in Connecticut that were perpetrated using firearms I should refrain from discussing firearms for a period of time.  I understand that for many people firearms are a very emotional subject but will remind my readers that my articles related to firearms only discuss firearms that are legally acquired and legally used. Prepography‘s discussions of legal firearms have the same relationship to stolen firearms used as murder weapons, possessed illegally (due to the accused perpetrator’s age), transported illegally (transportation permit is required for handguns in Connecticut) and a firearm that is possibly in violation of Connecticut’s assault weapons ban as a car article in Motor Trend Magazine does to the 88.67 people killed daily in auto accidents in the US… i.e. NONE. I remind all Prepography readers regularly to keep it legal, keep it safe and take control of their own self defense.  It’s a sad fact that the places we are most vulnerable are the very places that prohibit the law abiding from defending themselves.  Criminals and the mentally deranged are unwilling to follow laws the rest of us have agreed to abide by. Prepography‘s mission is to help it’s readers become safer, better prepared and more self reliant, we’ll keep focusing on that…for those wishing to politicize the suffering surrounding this tragedy I direct you to GunPolicy.org, International firearms injury prevention and policy which reports that in 2009 (the most recent year that data is available) the U.S. had a firearm related homicide rate of  .00298%, the lowest in 10 years during which the U.S. experienced its greatest firearms law liberalization in history.  It’s counter intuitive, but the presence or potential presence of legal, licensed...

Welcome New and Returning Subscribers

WOW!  What a difference 48 hours makes.  I’d like to extend a hearty welcome to new and returning subscribers!  Since the introduction of Prepography‘s Doctrine of Full Spectrum Preparedness we’ve had more than a 15% growth in e-mail and RSS subscriptions.  If you’re not currently subscribed by e-mail or RSS I encourage you to do so using the links at the top left side of this page. Since we have so many new subscribers I thought I’d step back a moment to introduce Prepography and some of our features.  Simply put, we are a self reliance and preparedness site.  We believe that prudent preparation will allow us to thrive or at least survive major life or societal change.  We encourage you to prepare for disasters, both little and big; both personal and regional or societal.  We believe that preparedness is the only rational response to an awareness of the current world situation and even a cursory study of history.  Read more on our Why Prep Page. Because we encourage self reliance on an individual, local, regional, and national scale we provide commentary on society as well as government actions and initiatives.  There’s nothing wrong with outside connections and ties…just don’t bet your life on them.  Politics…don’t see much difference between the parties and we’re critical of both when they attack liberties, encourage dependence or try to spend our great-grandkids future income. Additionally, we don’t believe in conspiracy theories…because we know that people generally aren’t very good at keep secrets… and secrets are required for effective conspiracies.  That doesn’t mean that there aren’t movements and mechanisms at work that would hurt our Republic… just that we can abandon our tinfoil hats and focus on the numerous real threats to our security and self reliance. We have several regular features and columnists: Jay…just Jay writes articles that often feature the lighter...

Camping Survival Advertising Announcement

I’m pleased to announce that Camping Survival has become the latest advertiser on Prepography.  That’s their survival coffee ad over there on the right hand side of this page.  They sell so much more than coffee though…food, shelter, clothing, first aid, survival kits, books, protective masks, and much more. I’ve bought a number of items from Camping Survival since I found them on the internet several years ago and was always pleased with both my purchases and the prompt service they provided.  My favorite section to shop is their Closeouts & Specials where they sell survival, and sometimes a bit off the wall products at deep discounts. Check them out and let them know you heard about them on Prepography.   FacebookPinterestGoogleRedditTwitterTumblrEmailPrintPocketMoreLinkedInLike this:Like...
