SHTF Sunday Summary

Week #11 has come and gone so it’s time for the Sunday SHTF Survival Summary.

Prepping

1. Civil unrest is a major concern for many of us as we see the fabric of society breaking down.  The Survival Woman at Backdoor Survival highlights the 9 Steps You Need To Prepare For Civil Unrest.  My personal favorite is #8 with storing supplies to keep children occupied and amused.  Something you don’t think about everyday.

Defense

2. If you plan to defend your homestead, you’ll need to get yourself a weapon.  The Shepherd School outlines 4 facts about background checks and gun control you may not have known.  If you own a gun or plan to own a gun, you need to know this information.

Economy

3. It is no secret that the Economic Collapse blog is one of my favorites. Michael does a great job of research and relating that research back to his readers in easy to consume nuggets.  This week he tackled 65 Signs That The Economic Collapse is Already Happening.  One comment that really hits home is how he describes the comments he gets from people on his blog that everything looks OK from their point of view.  It’s funny because it reminds me of the famous prepper saying “It wasn’t raining when Noah was building the ark”.

4. With all the focus on the Olympics, the upcoming election and the unemployment numbers, we’ve been missing a key factor for our future.  The unprecedented drought has caused more than half of the nations’ counties to be declared “primary disaster areas”.  Without these crops, farmers are unable to make their loan payments and all this as feed prices are increasing.  SHTFPlan.com documents the impact of this and how this will hit the entire country.
