The projects include obvious things like how to purify water, how to build a food storage, how to put together a bug out bag, and how to build snares and traps. But the projects also include areas of prepping that the beginner may not have considered, such as taking a CPR and first-aid class, getting fit so you can carry your bug out bag and getting dental and medical checkups. What I liked best about the book is the sensible suggestions for getting your spouse on board with prepping.
The author, M.D. Creekmore, is keenly aware that preppers come from all economic backgrounds. He gives suggestions for high income and middle class individuals as well as folks who are on a fixed income. The positive news is that each of us can get better prepared regardless of our financial resources. If you buy this book and do the work, you will honestly be able to say that you are better prepared today than you were yesterday. If you are serious about the safety and well being of your family, whether you are a beginner or a long-time prepper, this is a book you will not want to miss.
What I do want to highlight is the one thing that was immediately apparent to me while skimming through the book. This is the ONLY book I've read thus far that breaks down lists of things to acquire for each various kit/stockpile/etc that doesn't seem to assume everyone has a seemingly unlimited budget.
I am fortunate in that I do have a pretty decent income, but even so I really appreciate the fact that for several, if not all, of these lists there are variations of each for different budgets. This alone is a great reason to buy the book.
Beyond that though, another good reason to buy this book is that it breaks things down into small manageable chunks. Despite the title, it would be unrealistic to think by the end of a month of following along the steps in this book you'll have all of the items and knowledge you need to survive the unforeseen emergency situation. However, it will get you organized, and I believe help prioritize your prepping and buying habits so that you spend less time studying and preparing to start preparing -- and more time doing and actually preparing.
Procrastination has always been one of my weaknesses, but having things laid out in the way this book does so, will help me do an end run around my procrastination and focus on necessary items to address. Additionally, it will help me stay focused on each task so that I don't end up running in circles never sure if I've accomplished everything I should have.
I've seen too many people who thought having a bit of food put back for an emergency is all they need to do, while that is a good thing to do, if you really want to survive, you are going to need to round out your preps, and that is more than food and water.
Survival, prepping, those are big buzz words right now in the era of reality TV shows, if you have watched very many of them, then you know that most of the people featured in those shows run the gamut from the outright silly, to the delusional nutter who probably has gone off their meds. You certainly cannot use most of what you "learn" from these shows to prep in real life. You need real instructions, you need a clear and concise guide book to take you from where you are right now, to someone who is ready for nearly any disaster, big or small. And you don't have to go to extremes to do it.
This is where Creekmore's book "31 Days to Survival" comes in. This book breaks it down into small, easy to digest steps that can be done by most everyone. Even if you are on a tight budget, you can still do this, Creekmore shows you how. He discusses things you might not think of as prepping for survival, things like your health, the healthier you are, the more likely you are to get through tough times.Read more ›
