Pest controls on the homestead or in the city should be put back to deal with rats and mice. A good barn cat will also be a big plus to have.
Some new additions to the homestead. Life as a prepper is not doom and gloom but fulfilling and real. Nothing fake here just living life as we where made to live. Our survival and ability to live and thrive by our labor and work of our hands. Life is good.
A common question that I get is how much to stock and what should I stock. This is a individual question that you need to answer. But look at the end game and what you think a WROL situation could look like and prep for this. If you prep for a natural disaster then study the disaster and prep accordingly. If your prepping for a WROL situation study history and see what happens to a nation that falls.

A thank you for your prayers and well wishes for my son. A look at my firewood and the need to have a energy source to cook your longterm stored food. Prepping without money. My son made a handle for a hatchet with only hand tools and no electricity.
I spent the day with some friends trying to help improve there ability to survive whatever calamity is thrown at them. They are doing great in most areas, there food supply is out of this world. They are extreme couponers and they have spent very little money to prepare. They have motivitated me to start extreme couponing.
Scott and I visited a new store today that caters to storing water and collecting rain water. He had a huge amount of tanks in stock of all sizes. (Most of his tanks are in the back and the few I showed doesn't do his inventory justice) He is a certified expert in collecting and storing rainwater. He can help you design a complete system that uses underground tanks and a method to purify and use it for domestic use. Check out his website even if your going to do it yourself because he will provide a lot of useful information that will help.
