Fellow Patriots,

As we live through unchartered territories, I wanted to take a few minutes to update you on some recommended points to gain information and improve your knowledge in all areas of preparedness. It is important that you include in your weekly schedule different ways to gain additional knowledge and skills. What do you currently do to improve your mind to what you should be looking for? Do you listen to the experts with past experience in civil strife? How about individuals who offer their knowledge and experience from their own survival lessons from past events? Do you monitor financial markets? Do you buy what you need vs what you want? What is your preparedness philosophy?

We are rapidly moving past the point of planning your next garden or planning your food plan. If you haven't started yet, you should kiss your wife and hug the dog and head to your local SAMS or COSTCO and bulk buy resources to catch up the best you can. Listen to podcast on your drive to and from the store, work, school, or any destination. If nothing happens, you have groceries for several weeks or months. No harm, no foul. Just do something.

Books - Read, read, read. What you learn today could be the difference in recognizing and seeing what is happening before others realize it. Reading supports you in your planning. Knowledge is power. If you aren't reading one book or more per week you are behind the power curve. These are a few books I would suggest you have on hand for reference and other books are to read, mark up and understand the points made by the authors.

Here's some goodies to get you started. Have fun.
