Hey Prepper Nation,
Those of us that belong to the few, the proud, the Prepared (OOO-RAH!) know that we had
better keep our bodies in good health and tiptop shape to withstand the rigors of the coming
hard times, but have we thought about keeping our minds sharp too? Without TV, the internet,
radio and the other myriad entertainments we enjoy today, we’re going to spending a lot of time
just looking at each other if we don’t have good, old fashioned methods of keeping the ol’ noggin
Have you stored up books and board games? Have you accumulated some crossword puzzles
(great way for ol’ Dr. Bones to stave off his impending Senile Dementia!) or sudoku to stay
occupied? Heck, after a while you’ll even wish you had some Mad Libs to ponder! Otherwise,
you’ll repeat this common weekend conversation from my college days:
Me: So what do you wanna do today?
Roommate: I dunno, what do you wanna do today?
Me: I dunno, what do you wanna do today?
Roommate: I dunno, what do YOU wanna do?
(Rinse and Repeat about 5000 times)
Of course, the answer in the future will probably be: “Chop some wood”!
Speaking of books, I know you continually surf to find interesting survival topics, but what
if things go south? All those pages on how to grow sprouts, etc. on your computer’s Favorites
List might not be accessible. Start accumulating a library, a real one, of prepper how-tos that
you can go to when other media is no longer available! It’s like having a lot of tools, some of
which you know you will rarely use, but could come in handy someday.
Stay prepared, brothers and sisters, from the neck up as well as from the neck down!
