About

ARE YOU PREPARED? DECEMBER 2012 IS ALMOST HERE.

Even if you don't believe in Mayan prophecy, the thought must have crossed your mind a time or two ... WHAT IF? The Mayans weren't the only ones to send out the message about possible catastrophic earth events to coincide with the coming winter solstice. A few other cultures in history and scientists of today all say we might want to prepare for something, some major event. We're all for being prepared. That's what our book is about and why we want to take it to print in December. If we can help a few more people be prepared we can feel good about whatever's coming next.

THINK NOTHING WILL HAPPEN?

If our government doesn't think something's comin' at us, why then have they put out a series of "Be Prepared" videos? Here are two we like that drive the point home. Notice in the first that the family has a prepared bug-out bag. You need one, too, and you need to have our book in yours.

And in this next clip, notice how the people act... as if not concerned about the approaching storm. Is this you?

WHAT ABOUT WATER, FOOD AND WEAPONS?

There's more to being prepared than just storing canned goods and water. Eventually you will run out of those items, and then what? Do you know where to find water once the grocery stores and gas stations are sacked? Our book tells you what to do. You might be surprised.

You also might think you're covered in the security department because you have a firearm that registered. Think again. As witnessed in Katrina, what did the government forces take first? One thing was people's firearms. Don't worry; there are weapons you can make that are better to have for reasons of cover and concealment. We'll teach you that, too.

You can make bows and spears!
You can make bows and spears!

If things hit the fan as prophecy dictates, you will need to know how to live outside, how to make a shelter, what you can eat that's not on four legs (edible plants), how to cook things, where to find water, how to protect yourself and your loved ones, how to set up a parameter for safety, how to conduct yourself to stay safest and more. We also give you a list of your bug-out bag essentials and a helpful list of other books and resources you should get before the big day. They might come in handy. 

WHAT IF NOTHING HAPPENS IN DECEMBER?

Great! If we wake to a beautiful, sunny day on December 22nd, we dodged a bullet and you got more prepared for the inevitable that's down the road. If you watch the news, you know the type of world we live in. It's likely a matter of time before you experience an natural or man-made disaster. They way we see it, one can never be too prepared. We aren't Doomsday Preppers, but we are cautious. We have five bug-out bags – one for every member of the family – food and other essentials. We also know how to live outside. We know the value of water. We know what else will be valued if the dollar crashes.

Be ready. Get the guide!
Be ready. Get the guide!

WHY THIS PROJECT?

Simply, we want as many people possible to read our down n dirty field guide so they too can be at least a little more prepared for catastrophic events than they are now. We want them to at least consider the possibilities. We want them to consider the consequences of not being prepared.

We have the book in e-book form already. We just want to do a good-sized print run now. And we want to add classes, web classes and tours so we can to teach others the basics of survival and even about edible plants. We hope you'll help us get there. 

We will use all pledges to print the book and set up the classes, which we will offer online, too. We need to create a simple website and a couple of minor handouts. We're ready and we want the public to be ready, too. Join us in our mission!

Risks and challenges

There are no challenges to speak of around this project. We need to give our manuscript to the designer along with our e-book cover and let her do her work. Within a matter of days she will be done. She is waiting. Then we have to set up our account on Lightning Source, sign our distribution agreements, take out the ISBN and UPC and order our books. The only challenge I hope we have is keeping up with orders and being available for events people book us into for speaking and teaching. This is an exciting and simple project, step one. The other steps are more involved, like landing the speaking gigs. The website will be designed quickly, too. There is no risk. All monies donated here will be applied to the design of the book and the site, as well as any necessary professional services we need to get us where we want to be. Thank you for your assistance!! We will keep you posted on our progress once our project gets funded. Be sure to connect with Sandra online.
