Prepper Priorities for the New Year

new year's resolutions for preppers

Ok preppers, the holiday season is over.  The Christmas presents are open and either now put to good use, lost, or best prepperstored in the back of the closet.  The tinseled tree is down, converted into mulch or a flash flame up bonfire.  So, sorry folks, but it is time to get back to work and time to re-focus on your prepping and survival mission.

However in the limited focus of you and your family, there is little one can do to impact any of these external issues.  So, it is time to concentrate on your own preparedness.  It is easy to allow tunnel vision to creep in, so the balance is to secure your own safety and survival potential while scanning the horizon for threats that might impact you.
