If you remember 1999 and the Y2K hype, you know that many thought January 1, 2000 would be the drop dead date for the end of the world as we know it. Thankfully that didn’t happen.
My family was among those who made modest preparations, and I have absolutely no regrets about doing so. I know of others who will say the same thing. That’s because we experienced an awakening of the need for preparedness, no matter what the situation.
And some of what we bought for ourselves back then has been useful or will still be useful in a crisis.
Back in those pre-Y2K days, I remember hearing the name James Talmage Stevens mentioned as the author of a best selling book on preparedness called Making the Best of Basics. Since then Stevens, a.k.a. Doctor Prepper, has updated his book with new material and features.
James Talmage Stevens is no newcomer to preparedness. He first published Making the Best of Basics back in 1974. He retired in 1999 and wasn’t planning to return this Family Preparedness Handbook to the marketplace.
But things changed. There was still a demand for the book. Then 9-11 happened. Plus, as we all know, a few years later, the economy took a turn for the worst. There’s more of a need now than ever for Making the Best of Basics.
Stevens says this about his best selling preparedness book:
“…It is written for a generation even further and more remotely separated from the skills of pioneers of America’s frontiers.”
Would you know which basic food items are essential for putting together a year’s supply of food for getting by? Your diet may not be glamorous, but would you have what you need to survive?
What it comes down to is this. If you’re prepared, you can have peace of mind in whatever survival situation you find yourself.
True, it may not be possible to prepare for everything, but get Making the Best of Basics and you’ll be on the road to setting and achieving your family’s preparedness goals. This family preparedness handbook will help you secure the storage food and survival supplies you need to live a prepared life.
