Smart Emergency Preppers Won’t Forget to Store Books

Why preppers should stock up on hard copy paper booksIf you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably realized that we are becoming more and more dependent on electronic media and less and less dependent on good old fashion paper bound books. I know that nearly all of the books that I read are on my Barns & Noble nook eBook reader and my kids enjoy reading books on either their iPod Touch or iPad.

So just for a minute, let’s imagine that we weren’t able to use these devices for an extended period of time. Some may say that this is a farfetched fantasy that will never come to fruition but it’s really not that far out of the realm of possibilities.

Having a rainwater harvesting system in place could go a long way towards making life much easier to survive after a doomsday event has taken place. You just may find that the water you collect in your rain barrell is the only water you’ll be able to get in some cases.

Watch The Colony TV Show – It’s Like Boot Camp For Doomsday!

The Colony TV show is like bootcamp for preppersI love talking to anyone who will listen to me about prepping for emergencies and one thing that comes up a lot when I’m talking about this subject is that people don’t really believe that a doomsday event will bring out the worst in people.

They want to believe that good will always prevail and law and order will remain in place regardless of the nature of the disaster. That is until I give them examples of the type of behavior that I’m trying to explain to them like the looting and marauding that we saw a few years ago shortly after Katrina hit New Orleans.
