Don’t say I never gave you anything. In the next several weeks, you’ll probably be spending a considerable amount of money on holiday gifts. Well, here’s one gift I have for you and it won’t cost you a dime outside of ink for your printer.
I asked several of my fellow prepper/survival bloggers for links to where my readers could find free downloadable checklists, forms, and other info. What I suggest to you is you warm up the printer, make sure you have plenty of ink, then spend a couple of hours going through these links, printing out hard copies of the stuff you find most useful for you and your family.
Might want to grab a cup of coffee, too, as you may be at this for a while….
