In my blog post about a fun night out, I mentioned meeting a woman who writes for a prepping blog. Unfortunately, I could not remember the name of the blog, but apparently she was talking about me at the same time I was talking about her and the blog host popped on over here.

Lucky for us, he left a link for me and you to check out. Here is the comment he left…

“Great story! I got to hear it from the guest who asked if you were preppers! She writes, under the pen name Momma bear, for my blog, [url=] TraceMyPreps[/url]. She writes twice a month, one general topic and one that’s a summary of her families preps for the month. Here’s a link to her latest post”

Go visit Trace at TraceMyPreps and check out my new friend’s writing here.

What I enjoyed about that particular post by Momma Bear is that she writes about how she and her family have been actively preparing to be more prepared, but in the course of dealing with a mini weather crisis she found gaps in her preparedness. What a great learning tool and she used her experience to help others. Love that!

  1. A family that purchases freeze dried “survival “foods will quickly spend all of their available cash resources. Unless they are in a solid, self-sufficient community willing to enter into a cooperative means of helping one another in times of need they’ll also lose a great deal of what they’ve set aside for preparedness.
    Gardens, water sources, poultry and small meat animals coupled with drying and canning your own food stocks is far less expensive. Dried beans, rice, corn meal, salt, pepper and canned lard placed in empty, sealable buckets or cans are also very affordable as well. You can even put dried milk products into these containers as well.
    Once everything is in the can drop a piece of dry ice inside, place the lid on the container and wait until it is pretty much filled with the icy fog and seal the can. Now you’ve got some basic supplies set up for long term storage. Then good basic Boy Scout, Girl Scout, military training camping and field craft planning. I prepare for extended storm savage and power outages and maintain enough food to carry us for about four or five weeks. If some EOTWAWKI situation happens I somehow think few if any people will be around afterwards.

    • I said retry much the same thing. I am preparing for natural disasters etc and that in an end of the world or total collapse I didn’t think many would last long.

  2. Thanks so much for the link to my blog! After you mentioned in your post yesterday I had over 130 readers that linked to it from your site!

    Coincidentally I just posted Momma Bear’s post for September, she writes: ‘MREs For Your Preps?’ passing along a good understanding, for the average civilian, of what a military MRE really is.

  3. Thanks for the link. I’ve got set up in both home and crash pad, so I’m set up either place to stay or flee with adequate things to provide for myself.

    It’s never too late to learn.
