THAT is a great reason to start a (reasonable) stockpile.
If you are totally new to the concept of “prepping”, here are a few GREAT books to help shed some light on the concept AND give you ideas on what steps you should take first.
Let’s start with One Second After.
It is a story of a man trying to fend for his family have a war that sends the United States back into the dark ages because they used Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP).
It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America.
This is set in a typical small town and explains what really could happen to us.
A great read and good thought starter. How it works is an electromagnetic pulse instantly disables almost every electrical device in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. Airplanes, most cars, cellphones, refrigerators—all are fried.
Amazon has it for $9.99 right now – with free shipping for Prime members.
Then, there is Lights Out. It’s a similar plot – EMP causing an effect that leads us back into basically pioneer times.
To quote one of the reviewers:
“If the lights go out the stores could close up, our paper money could become worthless, most would likely become hungry and desperate, your neighbors could become your biggest enemies and the proverbial gloves very well could come off if or when the “S” Hits The Fan. “Lights Out” may help get you thinking about how you would handle a prolonged bad situation and how you can start preparing now to keep you and yours better off then.”
This book is on Amazon right now for $19.95, with free shippin for Prime members.
Both of these books are a great “jumping off point” to see what the big deal on “Prepping” is…and decent reads for the action/adventure lover.
