The Best Way to Prep for the Worst.

“I live in an area that gets a lot of snow. I am not one of those people who goes all out and buys a bunch of extra stuff to prepare for cold weather since I’m from the south originally. However, when it does get really cold outside, it’s important to be prepared.”


“One thing you should have is some good winter boots so your feet stay warm and dry.” “Another essential item is a heavy coat or jacket that will keep you warm on your way home from work or while shoveling snow off the driveway.” “You might also want to pack some gloves, handwarmers, hats with ear flaps, scarves and maybe even wool socks if you can find them!” “Don

1. Why are the rich often unprepared for cold weather?

2. If an apocalypse does happen, which area is most likely to have a new group of civilization show up and help them rebuild society?

3. Do successful people regret their risk-taking in their careers when they hear the horrifying stories about what happens in a national crisis?

4. What do you think would be the first thing to return after an EMP has been launched, if it ever happened?

5. Why are some cities better prepared for cold weather than others (e.g., Chicago vs Cleveland)?

Life’s too short for bad clothes. 

In cold regions, winter is the season of extreme temperatures. Some parts of America have just entered this phase… During last year’s Seattle-Minnesota playoff game, it was well below zero – not counting what the wind chill factor would make it feel like on a field! So how about in SHTF? How do you prepare for and survive a bug out when outside temps are way worse than that?

In my opinion, it’s the ultimate challenge. Cold has a way of sinking into your soul; you can’t even imagine how cold Valley Forge was with soldiers walking around in bare feet because there were no boots available at all! I shiver just thinking about what might happen if we ever face another world war like that one and have to fight our enemies when they’re freezing too. But thankfully, as long as you prepare properly for colder weather (just like any other time), then its effects on both yourself and others will be minimalized more or less enough so that everyone can survive this harsh reality together.

You can’t survive the harsh winter conditions without shelter. A tent may not be enough for you to stay warm and safe from cold, wet weather. There are options like a high quality wall-tent that have a stove inside or even some kind of fixed house structure with insulation on the walls so your warmth won’t escape if there’s no fire going in it yet.

Kerosene or propane gas heaters could also be deployed. If you live in a cold area, start planning now for one of these as it may save your life and the lives of others around you if society collapses caused by an EMP attack on our nation’s power grid system. Camper trailers are another option to keep warm and provide shelter from natural disasters like blizzards, earthquakes, etc., but they should have good wall insulation so that there is no draft inside when using them with only kerosene or propane stove burners because this will make people sick.

It is the time of year when we have to be careful not to get sick. It seems that winter has come earlier than usual, so it’s best for us all if you take a few precautions – especially with your clothing! You needn’t worry about heavy snow gear; just keep in mind what layers will protect you from cold winds and moisture-wicking fabrics can also serve as an extra layer on those more frigid days. Trust me: wool suiting or sweaters are essential too.

Wicking layers against the skin and work out from there. Starting with a base layer, use anything to wick moisture away so that your body does not have to generate more heat than it needs in order for you stay warm then adding insulation like wool sweaters or synthetic materials which trap air molecules close to your skin will keep warmth where its needed most – next on the list is preventing cold winds by wearing protective facemasks when necessary. Lastly make sure boots are snug around ankles and feet as well as gloves because hands can get very chilly without proper protection!

Make sure during winter time they’re properly layered: starting with some sort of light-weight material such a tshirt under their shirt or blouse followed up by an undershirt made

In addition to waterproof and insulated boots, you may need some supplemental heat. Heat pads can be added on top of the toes in your gloves or socks for extra warmth. If there is a power source available, battery operated boot warmers are also an option that do not require charging as often but will likely cost more upfront than rechargeable ones with access to a constant supply of batteries at hand.

In cold weather, everyone has to be extra careful about what they eat and drink. When the thermal energy is low, it’s important not to take any chances when staying at a normal body temperature because you’re more likely than usual  to slip into hypothermia or frostbite if your internal ovens are running too hot for too long. It’s always good advice–even in milder months-planning ahead of time with warm meals that will easily provide sustenance without burning precious calories just heating them up on an old stove top burner every day! You can also pack some snacks like trail mix or nuts (energy) and granola bars/jerky (protein). Always remember water bottles as well; don’t forget those
