The Prepper’s Blueprint
In these hard economic times, people want to make sure that they make smart, worthwhile purchases. Tess Pennington’s new book, The Prepper’s Blueprint, available in paperback for under $25, is packed with value.
Pennington writes, “My purpose in all of this is not to promote fear and doom, or to teach others to hide from life, but to help others be aware that disasters do in fact exist and can affect us. Moreover, my goal is to teach others that they can find freedom through self-reliance.”
Pennington draws on her years of experience as a preparedness writer to deliver a manual that will take the reader from the first baby-steps of prepping to extended, long-term scenarios. In fact, her book is divided into three “layers.” Each layer consists of the important categories that each prepper should consider.
Layer 1 deals with “Immediate Needs.” Chapters deal with: Planning, 2 Weeks of Food & Water, Basic Tool List, Medical, Communication and nine other chapters. Layer 2 deals with “Short Term Preparedness” Chapters in Layer 2 deal with: Spiritual, Mental, Medical (bigger list), Tools (more involved than Layer 1), Water, Food Preservation and 11 other chapters. Layer 3 deals with “Long Term Preparedness.” Chapters in this final layer consist of: Fitness and Nutrition, Inventory Management, One Month of Food Storage, Essential Fats, Sugars and 19 more chapters!
Each chapter begins with an introduction that might include a news story, illustration or even a quiz. Throughout each chapter, Pennington has included tips and extras that provide valuable information. Chapters are also packed with links that the reader can visit to further research topics. Of course, you’ll have to enter links into your web browser manually since you want to purchase the paperback version as a hardcopy of the book. Chapters conclude with a section on “Preps to Buy” and “Action Items” that the reader can work through towards their preparedness plans.

Those On Gateway Drugs (Guns & Gardening) – Don’t laugh! Seriously, anyone who is starting to get into guns and gardening are dabbling in gateway drugs to prepping. I’ve seen it happen!
