The world we live in is an unstable one. From natural disasters of biblical proportions to concerns about the economic downturn and government shutdown, the hits just keep on coming. At the same time, the power grid is incredibly fragile. Our dependency on widely distributed long distance systems for power, medicine, and food makes our society susceptible to attack, whether by foreign or domestic enemies, or the weather. No matter the concern, the solutions are the same. Scott Hunt, the owner of Practical Preppers, and an experienced engineer, homesteader, and pastor, offers readers a complete and detailed guide to sustainable living. With this book, anyone can learn how to:
Secure a water source—even in an urban area
Grow and preserve food
Set up an alternative energy supply
Maintain a comfortable shelter –including alternative cooking and sanitation methods during a long power outage
Bug out—what to include in your bug out bag and how to leave
Prepare for medical issues
Deal with security concerns
Preparing for disruption of services is a noble venture which gives peace of mind. This book will empower readers of all skill levels and resources to achieve an independent, sustainable lifestyle.
