The Ready Center - Life Straw 2

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

The recommendation that we make in the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series are usually pretty broad.  We do our best to leave color, style, brand, etc. up for your choosing.  However this time we’re not going to do that.  Nothing about this recommendation can or should be left for interpretation, so let me make this crystal clear for you:  We want you to buy yourself a LifeStraw.

This is the one and only time during the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series that we will deliberately tell you to go out and purchase a very specific brand of product.  This is not a sales gimmick for us.  The Ready Center is not “in bed” with LifeStraw or vice versa.  As a matter of fact, The Ready Center doesn’t even sell the LifeStraw.  The reason for this plainly stated recommendation is simple:  It’s an awesome (more…)

Since the 20th of this month there has been a 5 day Survival Summit going on via the internet.  There is a collection of around 25 “experts” that are giving different lectures covering various aspects of preparedness.  Some of the topics include making your own biodiesel legally, identifying edible plants, how to fortify your home on a budget, the correct way to build a Bug Out Bag, how to grow food without irrigation, urban survival, alternative dentistry, the combat mindset, so on and so on.  It is online and completely free.

The Survival Summit website says this collaboration was designed “to be an opportunity for preppers and survivalist to get access to amazing presentations from the industries foremost experts no matter where you live.”

I’ve checked out 2 of the presentations so far.  One was pretty dang good.  I wish I would have taken notes.  The other was a total and complete waste of my time.

There is some very useful information to be gleaned from this, but be prepared to put up with an idiot or two as well.  Check out the promotional video below to learn more.  Sign up and “attend” the summit by following this link.

Let us know what you think.

And as always, MAKE READY!
