What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2017-8-5)


(Got the lumber, time to start framing…)

 
This weekly post is an open-forum, though preferably focusing on what we all did this week for our prepping & preparedness.

Voice your thoughts, opinions, concerns, or questions for others to comment on general topics of preparedness.

Because the more who comment, the more who will benefit from the discussion…

Are you a first timer? Let’s hear from you too!

 
———————————–
Note: For articles posted during the week we appreciate that you stay on-topic with your comments. For off-topic comments, post them in the most recent Saturday open-forum: What did you do for your preparedness this week?

Note: Read the most recent comments (from all articles) here.

Prepping & Preparedness This Week

-Working on the barn project
-Processed some trees
-Realizing that I must start the garden earlier next year
-Cleaned the solar panels

 
Note: Regarding the state of this weekly Saturday forum:

Okay folks, I’m simply leaving the Saturday post as it always has been. Upon reflection, I suppose that most people have used it to talk about what they did for preparedness this week, which was my original hope.

Sounds like most of you want it to stay as is, and for those who don’t like the banter or way off topic, they can simply scroll down through it till finding what’s interesting for them.

That said, the comments in this weekly article will simply be open-forum, any topic, although hopefully most of you will stick with the theme of this blog.

I will no longer “police” this particular weekly post and will let it run on…

-Ken J.

 
Okay, so what have you been up to this week?
