Getting Ready for the Apocalypse

by Erich

For those of you who are interested, a couple weeks back I was interviewed by a reporter from the AFP (Agence France-Presse) — a French news agency along the lines of Associated Press and Reuters. She had contacted me through this blog to do a piece on the growing interest in everyday people “prepping” for disaster — economic, natural, or otherwise.

It’s amazing that after many hours of doing the interview and taking video it gets cut down to under 2 minutes! Although I’m not quite sure how I feel about the title, I thought it came across well and didn’t make me out to look like some wacko (although I admit I am a bit strange ;)).

Congrats on the great interview.

They only threw in one “hardcore survivalist” that I could hear, that’s pretty good.

I like how they mentioned that the U.S. government suggests 3 days of food LOL! Don’t forget to bring your plastic tarp and a roll of duct tape.

Were you not worried about compromising your security, preps, etc by putting all of that on TV?

Thanks for the comments Lucas. I got a chuckle out of the 3-day suggestion as well.

As far as the OPSEC question goes, yeah I had my reservations but when it came down to it, I felt that this message is too important right now to get out to folks. Besides, if it comes down to it, I do have plans set up for keeping my family and supplies secure (and I’m not talking about guns) so OPSEC is still in place. 🙂

Dennys,

Gracias por los comentarios! Pronto voy a estar escribiendo un artículo sobre un cinturón paracord nuevo que estoy haciendo actualmente. (Sólo necesito encontrar el tiempo para terminarlo primero). Pero estad atentos!

3 days??? But that’s what people ALREADY have. I do think most have at least 3 days of canned food, dried goods (crackers, bread, etc), water. And of course if the emergency happens when you’re home, you can munch on that food, toss the rest and maybe bbq all the meat and salt it if you think the meat will go bad due to extended emergency. So if they do NOT have 3 days…what is wrong with people? They are like spoiled babies that sleep in and wake up to a grand breakfast made by their pappy or mammy. So many deserve and will get a rude awakening!!!

You can expect copper bottom cookware to maintain a consistent temperature across the entire cooking area.
Never use any shortcut methods while cooking, handling and cleaning cookware unless you are hundred
percent sure of its success. This has been one of a reason why some people are hesitant to buy a cast iron cookware.
