I had over the Holidays a chance to read an excellent series of books on my Nook. These books have transformed how I am going about planning for resiliency in my life. I do believe that we are headed for harder times than any our nation, economy or people have faced since the end of WWII. How we prepare ourselves and our families to weather these storms is critical to our continued prosperity, perhaps our very survival.
These books have motivated me to review, in depth, the provisions I have made and am making for my family in my coming absence. Both in the nature, the depth and the useability of my preps. It isn’t enough for me to know how to be the ultimate survivor, if my family cannot cope in my absence or incapacitation.
And I am firmly committed to making sure that what we do not only insures our continued prosperity and survival in hard times, but, if nothing goes really wrong, they should still improve our quality of life (hat tip to Jack Spirko!).
Therefore, I cannot recommend highly enough the Deep Winter series by T. C. Sherry. Read them with pen and paper nearby and analyze your own preparations in light of these well written and realistic scenarios. Not only will you come away entertained by the stories and with many new ideas for improving your own resiliency, but you will have a renewed sense of the importance or preparation and hope and faith in what is possible within our society.
