I was in Scouting for over 30 years. The motto of the Boy Scouts is “be prepared.” When Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, was asked, “prepared for what,” he replied, “why any old thing.” It’s in this spirit that I’ve created this website. It isn’t about Scouting, though you’ll find a few things here on that topic. This is about being prepared for any old thing.
I’m not a doomsday prepper. I don’t have a bug-out hideaway tucked in the mountains, nor have I dug a hole in my back yard, put a steel shipping container in it, and stocked it with food and other essentials necessary to avoid the zombie apocalypse. I haven’t converted my IRA to gold bullion that I have secreted somewhere. If the sh** really hits the fan (SHTF in prepper-speak) it’s not going to be like Fear the Walking Dead.
What this site is about is preparing for the more likely disasters, the regional or local disaster, not the EOTWAWKI (“end of the world as we know it”). And there’s a little bit about preparing for our own individual EOTWAWKI, also known as death. That one is a certainty. Count on it.
