It always boils down to that, doesn’t it? Those words written almost 3,000 years ago are more true now than when they were first conceived. Stay sharp, my brother.

People buy school supplies, clothes and etc. in August and Christmas presents already. They buy stocks and bonds, Pension funds and etc. Why not buy gold, silver, food and other supplies? The average congregation gets rattled over “prepping”. But getting ready for winter they understand. So what if the ‘winter’ is actually a disaster.

Hi Crystal! Thanks for the question! We are…well…sort of active! Which means we haven’t been posting much for a couple of years – life happens – but we respond to comments and we’re talking about becoming more active in the near future. There’s still some great content here but it’s time to start building on it. Hope you stick around to see what’s coming up.

Comment on Breaking OpSec by Sandy Hovatter http://theapproachingdayprepper.com/breaking-opsec/#comment-2307 Wed, 13 Mar 2019 15:12:14 +0000 http://theapproachingdayprepper.com/?p=2740#comment-2307 In reply to Mary Macmaster.

Hi Mary,

So sorry that those closest to you aren’t embracing your prepping efforts. That’s pretty frustrating. My advice would be that you do a couple of things:

(1) Don’t talk about it all the time – you may think you’re rarely talking about it, but to them it seems like you’re always talking about it. So be very careful to not bring it into most conversations.

(2) When you do talk about it, do so as calmly as possible. It’s easy for us to become excitable as we talk about the threats that face our world, but to those who don’t share our points of view, it seems like we’re being an alarmist – or downright crazy. So I always make a point to speak very matter-of-factly about these things and not be overly emphatic. Also, when I talk about prepping to new people, I always use modern day examples of why I store extra food and water in the house. I know from previous comments you’ve made that you know these things, but others may benefit from more details here. I calmly say that grocery stores typically store only 3 days worth of food and when a disaster is coming, they’re often sold out before the disaster hits. Not to mention the increase of prices as availability gets low. Having my own “convenience store in my house” gives me peace of mind. Even when we lose water in the house for some odd reason (happens about once a year), I don’t experience the panic I used to. I am also confident that if either my husband or I lose our jobs we won’t have to be spending much on groceries because we already have them. When talking to people I don’t know or others who I know are not receptive to prepping, I don’t bring in any discussion of TEOTWAWKI. Save that for those who express interest.

(3) Sometimes you just have to drop the topic and do the prepping on your own. Of course big purchases would have to be discussed with your husband, but you can do a lot of prepping on small budgets. And some of it you can “disguise” as being a new hobby – things like gardening, for example, cooking from scratch, etc.

If anyone else has any helpful ideas for Mary, let’s hear ’em.

Comment on Places You Don’t Want to Be by Mary Macmaster http://theapproachingdayprepper.com/places-dont-want/#comment-2306 Wed, 13 Mar 2019 06:11:54 +0000 http://theapproachingdayprepper.com/?p=1941#comment-2306 I agree that grocery stores are one place you won’t want to be in the event of a disaster. Every hurricane season, grocery stores are picked clean by the last minute mob. In some cases, grocery store prices will skyrocket because people are desperate.
