One thing you
don't want to be during the coming "crunch" a polite word
for "collapse" is dependent on the system. The more you can
take care of yourself, the better off you'll be physically, financially,
emotionally and even spiritually. Here are 20 ways to become more
self-sufficient while you still can:
a small solar system that can be used to run a laptop or recharge
a water well and install a hand pump or solar-powered DC pump
up a rainwater collection system or barrel
some cash: stock away some green dollar bills and lots of U.S. nickels
and learn how to use a handgun, rifle and shotgun
and know how to use a water filter
a garden this spring and acquire more food production skills
garden seeds so you can plant the next generation of food
a wood-burning stove for heat and cooking
a large quantity of stored food; enough for at least 90 days
to know your local farmers and ranchers
up valuable barter items that are relatively cheap today: Alcohol,
coffee, ammo, matches, etc.
store extra vehicle fuel (gasoline, diesel) at your home or ranch
Be sure to use fuel stabilizers to extend their life.
emergency first aid skills and own first aid supplies
This could save a life or possibly save a trip to the emergency
growing your own medicine
Plant and grow aloe vera, oregano, garlic, cayenne pepper and other
medicinal herbs that can replace a surprisingly large number of
prescription drugs. Oregano, for example, is a potent antibiotic.
Aloe vera treats cuts, scrapes and burns.
emergency hand-cranked radios so you can tune in to news and announcements
My #1 recommended brand is Freeplay.
your immune system with vitamin D and superfoods
your level of physical fitness
how to raise animals such as rabbits, chickens, goats or cows.
