Don't Throw Out That Old CellPhone

At some point in the near future, you're going to upgrade your phone and you may be left with an old phone that is still functioning, just outdated. Do not throw it away.

You can use this old phone as a backup device if there is an event that destroys most of our electronics, like an EMP. Of course this will only be possible if the old phone is stored in a EMP safe container. Some people mention microwaves could withstand an EMP.

So let's say there was an EMP attack and your brand new phone is toast. In fact, everyone's phone is toast. All of the information on the phone, lost forever. But you have your old phone sitting at home safe and sound, ready to be turned on.

Now, I know what some of you are saying, "the EMP destroyed all of our communication lines, so who cares if I have an old phone".  Our phones are now mini-computers. They will hold any information we put on them for future reference. Apps that don't require a signal will function just fine. Music you would have missed could still be at your fingertips. Your children will be entertained and quiet during stressful times.

Before throwing old items away, always ask yourself if it's something that could be useful down the road in dire times.

Keep on Prepping!

Ebola Continues to Spread

The latest news isn't too promising as global talks have begun about declaring a global health emergency. And a Saudi man has died after returning from a business trip.  Full Story Here 

The media keeps telling us "not to worry, the virus is very difficult to spread". But the virus continues to spread. Will it soon be outside the African continent? Is that when we panic? When should we panic? Our government will tell us when it's time to panic, right?

Listen folks, this isn't the bird flu or the swine flu. Ebola doesn't care how healthy you are, it will kill you. Ebola makes you bleed from the inside and die a very painful death. The past flu scares are nothing compared to this Ebola threat. So how long are you going to wait to prepare yourself and your family?

Me personally? I may be locking the doors when the first positive case is reported within the U.S. The incubation period is up to 2 weeks which is a very large window. In 2 weeks, we could go from one positive test to thousands dying across the states. This is not an exaggeration. This threat is becoming more real everyday.

Without a vaccine, Ebola could potentially wipe out a majority of the world population within a few months. So, 6 months of food/water storage could potentially put you among the few survivors left if this indeed becomes the world-wide pandemic.

There are also reports that there are already positive cases across the U.S. but the government could be keeping the news hush as to not panic the public.

Maybe this is the ultimate Earth cleansing we have read about? Have the conspiracy theories been right all along? I hope not. We will find out soon enough.

Hopefully, we can look back weeks/months/years from now and see that we were over-reacting. That this was just a small scare and the media was actually right, "nothing to worry about".

National Guard Activated in Ohio City

There is a 'Do Not Drink, Do Not Boil' emergency in Toledo, Ohio and the National Guard has been activated after the tap water continues to be dangerous for a second day. The water is testing positive for microcystin, because of a Harmful Algal Bloom in Lake Erie. Boiling does nothing to clean the water and surprisingly makes the situation worse. Full Story Here

This is just another example of preppers having the upper-hand. The people who have prepared their families with a back-up supply of clean water do not have to fight the crowds for bottled water.

This is also a lesson for preppers relying on filters and boiling to supply drinking water, post-disaster. Algae covered water should be avoided because it appears that filters and boiling do not clean the water of the microcystin. The last thing you want post-disaster is diarrhea.

Ebola: Coming to an Airport Near You

Can this story seriously stop following the plot of a bad 1990's pandemic horror movie?

Now America is flying the American patients back to Atlanta in order to treat them. Full Story Here. Yes, that is correct. We have sent a special medical jet over to retrieve them and bring them...and the disease...back to us.

Don't get me wrong folks, I want these amazing people to survive this. They have done amazing things over there that most of us wouldn't even attempt. They deserve to survive this beyond a doubt, but why are we going down this path? I understand their survival chances improve being admitted into one of our four special isolation units.

The scary revelation then is this: what happens if this spreads in the U.S. and we only have four of these special units across America.

Listen, Europe and Asia are extremely concerned about this disease spreading to their borders. Apparently, they're the only ones because I keep seeing American Drs on TV saying it's no big deal. America is pretty cut-off at this point from the pandemic. That is until yesterday when we decided to voluntarily fly the patients and their virus back to the States.

At this point, it is so crazy it is laughable. This story is so bad, word for word, it could have been sold as the screenplay for the next pandemic movie.

Thanks to our decision makers, the threat is real now. Ebola has crossed our border and we are more at risk today then yesterday.
