A Time To Reflect And Plan (Part 2)

In Part 1 we looked, at a high level, at what specific scenarios we are preparing for. In this post we will look at the plan we have put together for becoming more prepared in 2022.

We will use the same format as we use in the Preparing For the Resistance series of posts:

Toughen Up

Spiritually:

      1. For 2022, I want to complete a detailed study of four books of the Bible.
      2. Perform three additional service projects per year

Mentally:

I don’t know of anyway to specifically strengthen myself mentally for what is coming. Strengthening myself spiritually and physically requires and will build mental toughness. Tactical training that forces a fighting mindset strengthens mental toughness. As does a basic awareness of what is happening in our nation and our world.

An even tougher question is how to help those around me become stranger mentally without discouraging them…

Physically:

      1. First and foremost, I want to get my shoulder squared away and healed so I can work and fight more effectively.
      2. I want to lose 15-20 pounds
      3. I will get myself in good enough cardio condition to run half a mile and be able to pass the Marine Corps Combat Fitness test and complete a “Murph Challenge.”
      4. I want to get Wonderful Wife into a regular workout routine.
      5. Finally, I need to get off my duff and get a fully functional security system set up and running as well signing up for a monitoring service for the system.

Be Smarter

      1. Pass my exam for a Ham license
      2. Complete a medical training class
      3. Complete at least six tactical training classes during the year.

Be More Resilient

Supplies:

      1. We are in the process of building up our stockpiles and would like to complete that in Q1 of 2022.
      2. Fill in the holes identified in the 100 Things That Disappear In A Collapse exercise.

Gear:

      1. Our bugout bags are a mess and have been pilfered through the lock-downs of 2020 and 2021. We need to get these ready to go at a moment’s notice.
      2. The same goes for my get home bag. It’s been so long since I really left the house that I need to get this back back in shape and restocked.
      3. I also want to put together a get home back/crate/tub for my Hippy Dippy daughter in San Antonio.
      4. I need to do a test run on a number of critical gear items; single room air conditioner, new propane heater,  butane powered burner, propane stove, and our lanterns.

Finances:

      1. Add $24,000 to our savings/investments
      2. Write our will
      3. Purchase a prepaid funeral plan

Energy:

      1. Buy a backup generator
      2. Buy a small solar charging system that can be used for charging electronic devices

Those are my goals for 2022. How about you? Do you have a prep plan for next year? Feel free to share it in the comments below.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

God bless and God save the Republic.
