What Did You Prep This Month?

It has been a busy month and somewhat productive…

Walk With God

Completed two more rounds of praying for our 100 closest neighbors. Church, Sunday School, and Bible Study all attended regularly.

Self Defense/Hunting

We bought 100 rounds of .308 hunting ammunition. I am now just above my minimum inventory levels on all the calibers I maintain. I also bought a box of 50 .357 Magnum soft points for woods carry during our hunting trip and a box of .44 Magnum hunting rounds.

I reloaded 100 rounds of .38 Special and purchased bullets to start reloading .327 Magnum and to load up some .45 ACP.

I traded a .308 hunting rifle I was not using for a Smith & Wesson Model 64 that will definitely be used (has already been to the range). I bought a second Ruger LCR in .38 Special. I always like to have a backup of my primary carry gun. It was on my list and I came across a really good deal on a pre-owned (but likely never shot or if so less than a few dozen rounds) model at a local gun shop.


Still making progress on stocking up our primary pantry and our emergency pantry. The primary pantry is about where I want it to be:

Primary Pantry

I was able to get the emergency pantry just about finished up as well. I have an inventory of what we have and a list of the last few things we need to fill the gaps. I will buy a little at a time over the next few months or as I find things on sale until the emergency pantry is back to where it needs to be.

At some point we need to replace the freezer that was ruined in the flood. I would prefer a stand up freezer this time around. Chest freezers tend to become “shelf space” especially when they are in a utility room or laundry room. Things tend to get buried at the bottom not rotated properly. Chest freezers are more efficient and a good bit cheaper though.


No changes or upgrades here.


Trying to get some debts paid down including the SBA loan to repair the house and I would really like to get the house paid off as quickly as I can. The mortgage is the only “secured” loan we have and costs the most in interest every month. This has been a long term goal and we are making progress. It just takes a while.


Really need to get focused on this…

That’s it for me. That’s what I prepped this week. How about you? What did you Prep this week?

Take care and God Bless

  1. After getting off track for a while, with a few exceptions, we have restocked our emergency stash of canned and dried goods. Shot another GSSF match over the weekend with mixed results with more training scheduled next month. Still not back hiking, but the injury does finally seem to be healing. In the big picture, not a great month, but at least heading in the right direction

  2. The first frost came and we restocked everything on that day including our bottled water.
    Thus we have 14 days of long store water and a clear months worth of food staples.
    Just need a new Propane tank but at £30, that will have to wait.

    The car has had it’s service, winterized, tires checked, tank will now be kept full, and a new siphon hose fits in the trunk alongside the pry bar. (And yes I have no shame).The recovery wrecking kit has been checked and at last we have a second mobile phone on a different type of network.

    The refuge is finished, lined and secure.
    All PPE has been checked and updated.
    Perimeter security is as good as it will get.

    As for Fitness? LOL,
    New non slip ferrules on the walking sticks is as good as that gets.
    We have also restocked our two first aid kits and our OTC stock.
    Personal meds stock is up to 60 days.

    Weapons? They still work, as advertised.
    The worry as always is when in transit.
    To that end two brand new almost laser power tactical faced torches have replaced the limp ones we had.
    There is so little we can do legally. Our laws won’t let us carry anything more practical.
    (I write smiling quietly to myself).
