Preppers – If You Aren’t Doing This Annually, You Won’t Be Disaster Ready
March 17th, 2017
Well, it may seem cliché to say that spring is right around the corner, as in most of the U.S. there’s still plenty of snow on the ground. Winter still seems “deep” to some (especially Yours Truly, as I have almost 3’ of snow on the ground), and the cold weather has not broken. Nevertheless, everyone out there in ReadyNutrition Land, the early bird gets the worm. I’m referring to all your gear that you’ll be breaking out soon when the cold weather breaks.

Your gear can best be maintained according to a maintenance schedule and you can get a start on it now. Some preppers do it twice a year when Daylight Savings Time hits. But it’s more than giving it a glance and it doesn’t just mean cleaning it. It also means inspecting it for serviceability and function. It means making sure that it’s well organized and that you can pick it up at a moment’s notice to “rock and roll” with it…be out the door and on the moor! You can’t do that unless it’s ready. Let’s discuss it, shall we?
How’s that rucksack? If you’re the way I am, you absolutely hate anything that can detract from your load-carrying capabilities. Inspect that rucksack! Has it been sitting out in the garage or in the basement, on the cement floor? I hope not. Are your straps in order, and are there any signs of dry-rot, mildew, or water damage? You need to find that out now, and even more:
Preppers – The time to find out about deficiencies was yesterday, and there should be a “zero defects” policy regarding them.
