Time To Run Your Generator…

August 21, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

My two Yamaha’s…

This is a reminder to do your due-diligence and start up your backup generators…

Generator maintenance involves checking the oil level and then simply running your generator from time to time to keep its internal parts lubricated, batteries charged (if it has a battery), and just to make sure the thing works before you actually need it to work.

I try to run mine every 3 months or so…

Stunning Simulation Video Of Asteroid Belt

August 19, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

The following asteroid belt visualization shows just how surrounded we are on planet Earth — in the middle of an asteroid shooting gallery…

Most asteroids come from a region in space between the planets Mars and Jupiter called the asteroid belt – a place loaded with irregular shaped objects ranging in size from dust particles all the way up to many, many miles across.

Portions of the asteroid belt are very dense with objects, and frequent collisions take place, changing the orbital nature of the objects themselves (like a ping-pong gallery). Some of these result in eventual collisions with the Earth’s atmosphere as meteors or ‘shooting stars’.

What are the chances of Earth being hit by an Asteroid?

A Gasoline Siphon Pump For Preparedness

August 18, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

The scenario: The grid went down (either regionally or wider) but the root cause of the collapse was not an EMP, so the vehicles still run, and so does your generator.

Among the multitude of problems that you are facing, one of them is non-functioning gas pumps (no electricity) and when your tanks run dry, and when you’ve used up your storage of gas cans, that’s it… you’re out.

But maybe not! There will be gasoline in other vehicles, gas storage tanks, and anywhere else with gasoline-operated equipment. You just need to get it out…and transfer it to where you need it.

Here’s how-

Methods To Transport Emergency Water From Source To Home

August 17, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

Water. You all know that water is among the very highest of priorities for survival. The vast majority depend on flowing water from their local municipal water department while others depend on their wells.

Since many of you are also preparing for a worst-case collapse scenario whereby the infrastructure may also collapse or be interrupted, one of your highest concerns should be a plan (and the methods) to move emergency water from an external source back to your home…

Think of a hypothetical scenario – regardless of cause – your existing water source ‘dries up’. Gone. Add to that scenario the circumstance such that everyone else is in the same predicament. Lets say that the grocery stores have all sold out of their water bottles.

Uh-oh, what will you do?

Don’t take the easy way out of this exercise and tell yourself that you’ll simply drive out of the area until you find a store with some water. Lets say that all store supplies are gone. What will you do?

Well let me offer a few suggestions:

To Be As Debt Free As You Can Be

August 16, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

debt-free

To be as debt-free as you can be is to be as free as you can be. I like the sound of that…

By resisting a lifestyle that consumes all of your ‘pay’, you will be rewarded with a financial freedom that is unknown to most of your friends, your workmates, and most others who have dug themselves into a financial hole.

At first it may seem difficult to forgo the lifestyle of apparent ‘riches’ due to modern marketing and ‘peer pressure’ from those who believe they actually own the assets that they parade around… or those who appear to live life lavishly.

But after awhile you will realize that most of them really actually own little to nothing, and their apparent flourishing lifestyle is all hinged on bank loans and debt. It’s a facade. A front. Many of them are ‘stuck’ and saddled with debts and loans that seemingly go on forever… They are anything but ‘free’ from the system.

Especially if you start young, a financial philosophy of living far BELOW your ‘means’ (your paycheck) will keep money in your pocket instead of owing it all to the bank. It will enable a life of liberation and freedom from the system that is rigged to keep you down.

Here’s how:

What Preparedness Items To Take With You On Vacation?

August 15, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

vacation-preparedness

Given the timing (it’s August) and the fact that August is a popular month for vacations, I am curious to know what you have thought about taking, or have taken with you on vacation having to do with preparedness for ‘just in case’…

I know that I typically bring some ‘extra’ preps whenever going away on a vacation, and I would imagine that many of you also do the same thing.

For me, it depends where I’m going, how far away from home it is, how long I will be gone, my method of transportation, potential risks specific to the location itself, and any pertinent ‘current events’ which may become a problem…

A list of a few things to consider – just enough to get your own gears turning:
