September is Almost Over and No Apocalypse So Far

All my friends in the know kept telling me that the world would end in September of this year. We’re 22 days in and it hasn’t happened yet, but it is still a possibility. Even so, if it’s an economic collapse, it could start in September with the full ramifications not felt for a while.

In the meantime, let’s talk about some other stuff, like how we can prepare for adverse conditions, no matter what causes them or when they occur.

But here’s the thing, think tactically above all. Many of you will be creating tactical and sanitation nightmares with junked cars, old appliances, and piles of garbage in your perimeter.

This week’s question…how would you label your prepper philosophy? Here’s a few choices, but feel free to add your own.¬†Homesteader, Rugged and Self-Sufficient, Tactical/Military, Tinfoil Hat, etc.

This message was written by Dr. David Powers and his team of preppers, scientists, and reliable conspiracy theory wackos. You can always find me at Thanks for reading!
