Thank You

If you have hit the tip jar, and not gotten a thank you, please do let me know! I try to get those out ASAP, but with my short term memory OH SHINEY! 🙂 I’m supposed to make lists of what I need to do, and what I’ve done, and they work well — when I remember to do them. So if you have hit the tip jar, or made a non-anonymous donation via the fundraiser, and not gotten a thank you let me know so I can take care of it. Meantime, thank you all so much for the prayers, encouragement, and help. It is all very much appreciated.


If you would like to help me in my recovery efforts, feel free to hit the tip jar in the upper right or the fundraiser at A New Life on GiveSendGo. Getting hit by lightning is not fun, and it is thanks to your help and prayers that I am still going. Thank you.

  1. I followed your advice and acquired a copy of “Pulling Through”. As a checklist it remains, despite it’s copyright of 1983, relevant. But, being pre-Home Depot, Sam’s Club, Amazon and internet relevant in that it got me thinking that much in the book is now available, commercially, off the shelf. Many of the items Ing described are now in some fashion on the shelf at one of the above stores. Geiger counter–Amazon for about 100 bucks. Cans of stew and baked beans by the case at Sam’s Club. HEPA filters with 3 micron filtering, discounted if bought in bulk, at Home Depot. Ammo in bulk over the internet–done. AR15 in the closet–show me a home in Wyoming that doesn’t have one. And, so on.

    Admittedly, living in central Wyoming, you acquire some degree of preparedness. Getting snowed in for several days always remains a finite probability. At least 3-4 days of food and water. A small generator to keep the fridges and furnace going. Several jerrycans of gasoline–premium with Stabl. Food and bottled water. A heavy vehicle with four wheel drive, at minimum an F-150, in the garage. With all weather tires.

    It become easier to extend that preparedness out for several months. And, as prepping has gone mainstream, even if unmentioned in blue state venues, you can make a tour of the above mentioned stores and some sporting goods stores in addition, you can acquire pretty much everything Ing discusses in his book.

    1. Excellent, glad you found a copy! It is amazing how much things have changed in ways that make it easier to be prepared. As you say, with those stores and online, you can buy gear that is better and in some ways cheaper than making some of the items. Dean was an interesting and in some respects an amazing man. The book I am supposed to be working on actually got his inputs a number of years back. Time to get to work on it again.
