Week 4 of 52: Communications

Thank you for visiting Ready Nutrition and the 52 Weeks to Preparedness Free Web Series. Because of the popularity of the series and the tons of great feedback we have received over the years, we took your advice and turned it into a full-fledged book.

The original web series is still available for free and can be accessed via the chapter menu in the right sidebar (and by scrolling down this page), but if you're looking for the most updated version of this information and prefer to read it in the form of a physical book, then click here to order your copy today.

With the assistance of Daisy Luther, editor of The Organic Prepper, we set out  to add even more information to the original web series, organize and transform it into a book that encompassed all forms of disasters – both big and small. With all of the additional information added, the title even changed toThe Prepper’s Blueprint to help readers understand that preparedness isn’t just about having a plan, it requires drawing out a blueprint to set a preparedness foundation you can build upon and rely on when the time comes.

About the Prepper's Blueprint

The Prepper's BlueprintAcross the ages, in every survival story, a disaster of some sort plays a prominent role. Sometimes the part is played by the government, sometimes it is played by Mother Nature, and other times, the role is taken on by a random mishap. If we have learned one thing studying the history of disasters, it is this: those who are prepared have a better chance at survival than those who are not.

A crisis rarely stops with a triggering event. The aftermath can spiral, having the capacity to cripple our normal ways of life. Because of this, it's important to have a well-rounded approach to our preparedness efforts. Due to the overwhelming nature of preparedness, we have created the Prepper's Blueprint to help get you and your family ready for life's unexpected emergencies. To make a more comprehensive, easy-to-follow program, The Prepper's Blueprint has been simplified and divided up in a way to help you make sense of all the preparedness concepts and supply lists provided. We have divided the chapters into layers of preparedness.

    by far the vast majority of people do  not  know how to use a compass……   

    whats the point??   

  2. Janie Gentry says:

    It’s not that hard to learn the basics of using a compass.  There are books at the library, instructions online, or you could ask a Boy Scout to teach you.

    I have a neighbor who has been a hiker for many years and he is willing to help anyone who needs assistance with orienteering.  I’m sure there are people like him in lots of locations who are willing to teach. 

  3. Teri Goodwin says:

    If you should have to leave your familiar surroundings you will need the compass to insure you are heading in the right direction and not towards danger or in a large circle.

      Yes, most folks can’t take a compass and map and navigate 20 clicks to within a 10 meter point…but the compass can keep them honest by just using basic cardinal direction.  You don’t need to know magnetic north vs grid north…just know which way is north as the bird flies…
      Don’t forget HAM gear for two way comm or satellite phones (expensive) but not dependent upon the grid..
