Now, we're not the kind of family that thinks the world is ending, that the Earth will fall into a black hole, or that a particular political or religious group will take over and be world dominators. We are not extremists, militants or chicken-littles.
However, we DO believe that the status of Mother Earth is changing. The frequency and intensity of weather-related incidents is rising: droughts, floods, blizzards, heat waves, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. While we may disagree on exactly what's going on, we have to agree that something is going on.
Then there's politics and economy: this world is in a mess, financially speaking. Unemployment is on the rise, as is the resulting homelessness. Major permanent shift in weather patterns. Economy. Politics. Crops manipulated to not re-generate (so people will have to buy more seeds each year) will cause more hunger in the long run. Dependence on foreign oil. Free TV-watching has become pay-for-boxes-to-watch-"free"-signals (DTV). Constitutional and basic human rights are being trampled on. Civil unrest. Supplies not being available because imports dry up. Or transportation cost prohibits importing. No supplies means no manufacturing, and no products for anyone to purchase. Crop failures so heathy eating goes further away. Immune systems break down. Rising costs of utilities prohibit running water, heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, and sewer treatments. Spread of illness along pandemic proportions. Self-imposed quarantines or government-required 24-hour curfews.
The list can go on and on.
We believe we have about 3-4 years before the changes occur to a point of no return.
Don't panic but mark our words: be prepared... now. Find your perfect spot. Learn how to garden and preserve your food. Learn personal safety and first aid and homeschooling and handyman skills.
We still have a little time left. And if nothing happens beyond a little worsening weather and increasing gas prices, then you still have valuable knowledge.
... What are YOU preparing for? What threat do you think is the most imminent? What time line are you thinking about?
Welcome to the blog, Colorado Preppers. Prepping doesn't mean we think the apocolypse is coming or the earth will blow up. It simply means that we are preparing for any eventuality that may strike here in Colorado (USA) ... from swine/bird flu to blizzards to global financial collapse to loss of income and more. // Come learn with us about things like water purifying and collecting, inventory checks and more.
