It’s doubtful that 2022 will be better.

I keep getting asked what are the priorities for preparation that someone should do. Of course, it would be easy to say “buy the book and start with Exercise #1” but that’s not what many want. They want the quick solution.

Okay, here’s the quick solution. Besides Exercise #1 in the book, which is get two cases of water for each person in your household as the very, very base, solution, my next recommendation is to either buy a complete GnG bag or make one. For those want easy answers, just buy one already put together.

For one already put together here are two options:

Pre-packaged Grab-n-Go Bag

EVERLIT Earthquake Emergency Kits Survival Kit 72 Hrs 2 Person Bag with supplies for 2 people for 72 hours:

Premium Family Emergency Survival Bag/Kit — a basic bag with supplies for 4 people for 72 hours:

The second one is what I bought my son over Amazon just to make sure he had something for him and the grandkids.

Of course, to keep costs down, the equipment isn’t top of the line, but a lot of it is stuff I’ve got in my personal one, so it’s functional.

If you want a list of potential gear to make your own, I’ve put all my links in the pop up above on my web site.

Just get a bag, put it in your car or home and have a little bit of peace of mind.

Stay safe out there!
