Are You Ready?
Do you have information that is important to you that is accessible without electronic media? We have a prepper library with a multitude of books at our finger tips for reference for when the day comes and the lights do go out.
I’m not joking the earth does not have an endless supply of power other than sustainable resources like the sun and wind and lets face it we are not set up for an off grid environment just yet and it’s fairly clear the powers that be don’t want us off the grid anyway. We started out one book at a time some great places to collect books for your collection are:
Yard Sales – Used Book Stores – Library Sales – School Flea Markets – On line Book Swaps
We have books on the following topics:
- gardening/square foot gardening/vertical gardening/high yield gardening
- first aid
- cook books for cooking over camp fires
- food preservation
- game butchering
- growing mushrooms and other different sources of food
- and much more!
We went to great pains to collect many of these books so that we would be ready and would have information we needed at our fingertips.
Often when I search for information on Google I get redirected to several different places, and that just doesn’t happen when I open a book, although it does take a moment to search the Table of Contents.
We deliberately make an effort to cook with our dutch oven so we stay practiced at this skill, along with making sure to look up gardening questions in our books so using our book shelf does not feel unnatural when the time comes we HAVE to use it and it’s not just an option as it is now.
There may come a time when you need to know how to harvest dandelion greens and how to prepare them, or to know which tubers are safe to eat from the ground. Many of these topics such as butchering a pig or even a chicken most people typically don’t have to do these jobs anymore but you need to know how.
Knowledge is power.
I wish for you empowerment on your journey to preparedness.
Hope all is well!
