WHAT CAN BEGINNER & SEASONED PREPPERS DO DURING THE CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN?

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Boredom has set in for many in the United States, as the lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic continues for most. As preppers, our goal should not be to watch others suffer and laugh at their misery because they failed to prepare.  Instead, we should be helping others also prepare so the mass panic of a pandemic will be minimal next time around. And during lockdown is a great time to start.

People are in tough enough situations such as losing their jobs and being forced to close their businesses. Because of the dramatic effect of the sacrifices many have been commanded to make, this situation has had the positive effect of creating more people who want to be prepared for possible catastrophes.

You Probably Won’t Handle This Crisis “Perfectly.” That’s Okay.

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Right now, every prepper I know is busily trying to tie up any loose ends before the pandemic outbreak racing across the country becomes even worse. They’re buying last-minute supplies, securing their homes, and organizing their plans. They are managing their families, many of whom aren’t taking the situation seriously.

They’re trying to think of every last thing they possibly can before the situation becomes worse. They know there is more than likely going to be a point in time at which they have what they have and adding more supplies will be unlikely, if not impossible.

Food banks are reporting unprecedented demand across the US as millions lose jobs, investigation shows

An unprecedented number of Americans have resorted to food banks for emergency supplies since the coronavirus pandemic triggered widespread layoffs.

My Hawaiian Retreat

by R.L., Survival Blog:

If you haven’t yet moved to a geographically isolated location, then you should do so now.
I abandoned my previous position in Northern California. I had originally chosen it because it wasn’t downwind of any military targets from the Cold War. I moved 2,400 miles to the southwest, to the Big Island of Hawaii.
The attractions were great. Incompetent state and local government, year round growing season, no dangerous predators, and plentiful fish and game. Top that off with no fishing licenses, no insulation or air conditioners needed. “Secondary waterfront” acreage parcels (that are across the street from the oceanfront parcels) are less expensive than acreage outside of Reno.

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Now that most of the country is practicing social isolation, people are turning more and more often to their pantries to make meals from shelf-stable ingredients.

Do you ever wonder what on earth you’d eat if you had to rely solely on the items in your pantry? How could you possibly make tasty meals from these items you have stashed away? Do you imagine a future filled with cans of Spaghetti-O’s and saltine crackers?

Trust me when I tell you, you can do much better than that. Here’s a menu that you can adjust to your family’s preferences.

The human immune system works tirelessly to fight off invading pathogens like bacteria, toxins and viruses. To protect yourself from infection and disease, you must keep your immune system healthy, which can be achieved by eating nutrient-rich foods, getting enough sleep and exercising regularly. These healthy habits all promote a healthy immune function, which is crucial for protecting yourself from diseases like the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Here’s What People Are Running Out of First During the Lockdowns

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Here in the United States, many of us are in this strange kind of limbo called “lockdown.” Other states call it “social distancing,” and still others call it “sheltering in place.”

California, New York, and Illinois started the ball rolling last Friday, and since then, nearly half of the United States has joined in, to some degree or another. There are varying degrees of lockdown – nobody in any state is forced to stay inside their home at all times (barring quarantine due to infection or exposure.) You can still go to the grocery store or take a walk, but many businesses not deemed “essential” are closed.

SELCO: These Are the Signs the SHTF Is Happening for Real

by Selco, The Organic Prepper:

Note from Daisy: This article was originally published in July of 2018 but seems incredibly applicable today. Selco is in a dire situation in the Balkans right now, under martial law and mandated to work. If you would like to help Selco you can do so by purchasing one of his products or sending a direct donation. I’m sending the money to him for online product sales on a daily basis. Supplies there in Bosnia are becoming limited quickly.

He has given our community so much. I hope we can give something back to him. ~ Daisy

Consider Horde Mentality in Your Planning – Part 1

0

by Ani, Survival Blog:

As a prepper for many years, I’ve put some consideration into trying to understand the mentality of the “hordes” who might be forced to leave their cities and heavily populated suburbs, in the event of a major disaster. I think that while we may not know how things are going to unfold or what sort of disaster might provoke people into leaving and essentially becoming refugees, we can consider some of the more likely to occur scenarios. Doing this will let us examine how well-situated we are in our own homes, the risks that we might be most susceptible to, and actions that we could take. And if you’re reading this and still living in a city or heavily populated suburb, well, then this is also for you.

TYRANNY ALERT: Trump signs executive order banning “hoarding” of medical supplies as AG Barr promises “a knock on the door” for those sitting on commercial quantities of things the government wants to steal

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

President Donald Trump has made it clear he’s going to use the force of government to acquire supplies for protecting healthcare workers and patients as the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak worsens. 

On Monday the president signed an executive order banning “hoarding” of essential medical supplies like masks, gloves and gowns currently in short supply at hospitals around the country.
