Emergency Preparedness & You

As time ticks on, this problem will eventually make its way to your town. It is just a matter of time. Take all of the precautions you can possibly take to avoid contracting this illness. Follow all CDC guidelines.
There are all kinds of things you can do to occupy yourself while sheltering in place. Please feel free to submit your suggestions in the comments section of this video.


The US stock market reacted to oil price plunge and current medical situation unfavorably this morning. Could a world recession be in the horizon? We shall see. BE PREPARED FOR THIS.

As we all know, spot consumer goods shortages on every day products will be occurring around you. Know what to buy and what not to buy. Please follow my channel and watch some of my past 101 videos for a comprehensive tutorial of what to stock up on and what to pass on while you are preparing for in the unforeseen future.

HORMEL has done it again with another delicious shelf stable meal. This time, in a XL portion for those who wish to have more that they can store for long term emergency preparedness plans.
This meal tasted exactly what I expected coming from HORMEL!

(Feel free to pause the video to inspect the nutrition label.)

Remember the microwave safe bowl can be reused over and over again. I reuse mine for my morning cereal. Perfect portioning so I do not overeat while sheltering in place.

Always include your furry family members while you prepare for the unexpected.

A "RECOMMENDATION" can be turned into a "DEMAND" by local authorities as the situation escalates in this county in Washington state. My major concern with it is what do you do about the hundreds of thousands of citizens who live "pay check to paycheck"?
What do they do when they cannot telecommute? Do you assume they can afford to shelter in place or do you immediately set up a method for them to be funded at no cost the them while they are staying home? This is needed to be addressed now!

Here's something you can watch while sheltering in place to ease your worries.......... (sarcasm)

There was a change made and many of my earlier videos have been demonetized for reasons unknown to me and there were many. Even some from my very first days here on U Tube. I've gone back and requested a review of each video they now deem unable to create income for the channel.



I just visited a business who mainly caters to the lower income residents here and OMG! That place was picked over on some items that will become more scarce as the China Syndrome advances in my location in this country.
You can expect this same thing in other cities all across this nation and not one politician is addressing that. What happens when the less blessed, monetarily disadvantaged, i.e. POOR and are forced to shelter in place with small children and the elderly??? That could be catastrophic.


The incubation period is what causes this to be the most worrisome of all the viruses out there. It can be spread by an infected person and they do not show symptoms. A worst case for humans all around the planet.

Regardless of what you think, this could be just the tip of an iceburg we need to be ready for here.....

Grape Jelly with a Best By Date of June 2013 Taste Test.

Just because it has a Best By Date, does not mean it needs to be thrown into the bin when that date is reached. Here is another example of what we call Long Term Foods. This plastic bottle of Grape Jelly has been kept in a dark, dry and cool basement since 2012. Today, I opened it and it tastes just like the day it was packaged. The flavor, consistency texture and smell are equal to a brand new produced bottle of this product.

Politics is something we all have to address at one time or another in our movement about this planet. Time to start the discussion here. Painful as it may be, it has to be done. What do the words at the bottom of the presentations screen mean to YOU?
Please fell free to produce a video and let me know it is out there for all to see. We need to talk America. Stay on this channel for that opportunity. LIVE FEEDS COMING SOON!!!!

OK folks, I started getting things organized as requested by a viewer. I am not in any hurry but when I get going, I will not stop until I get tired for the day. And I make make several trips down to move things during the days ahead. But, since there is so much stuff down there being personal items and food, the place will never look like anything as orderly as some food storage bunkers (basements) out there on You Tube. I will be purchasing more metal (some assembly required) shelves as my income allows.....

A yard sale would also help dispose of some of the household items needing a new home. I may create a virtual yard sale for you, my viewers. Let me know if you would be interested in seeing my stuff and possibly taking it off my hands for a small donation.

Not much to say about this video. If you know where I can find the part needed or you want this vac sealer that needs a part, please feel free to make me an acceptable offer including shipping and it may be yours!!! Send me an email and we can negotiate that.

More of my thoughts out loud, so please be kind.........

What happens when you find them when they are not tearing your house apart. Our "three year old" puppy pets.

You Tube has done it again and added another place to mess creators up and get their videos demonitized!!!!

Can you all help out?

Testing things that you have put away for a major SHTF event for proper functionality and knowledge on how to use them is paramount to a properly prepared individual / family / organization in these uncertain times where a major emergency situation can come from right out of the blue.

This is a functionality test of a TENERGY 700 Watt Inverter, a used car battery and our stand-by compact refrigerator. The load for this inverter test is our stand by compact refrigerator kept in ready reserve for a time when the large house refrigerator can not be properly powered up due to a grid down failure. This excersize test three items, 1. The stand by refer, 2. the 700 inverter and 3. a spare partially depleted car battery.

The snow is falling and everything looks like a winter wonderland here in Southern New Hampshire. Now it is time to shovel that fluffy white stuff before it piles up.

What does this mean to you?
Today, the November U.S. jobs report was released and what FANTASTIC NEWS!!! Lowest unemployment rate in 50 some years!!! Great job everyone!!! Let's hope for a more prosperous new year so you may continue to prepare for unexpected emergencies.

Took the boy just under a hour clearing the accumulated snow away from the family car and drive way. Must get down to the ashphalt to ensure no ice build up later during the thaw freeze cycle while we await the next major snowfall here in our wintry wonderland of Southern New Hampshire. HAPPY HOLIDAYS FELLOW PREPPERS!!

The best way to welcome the new year for me is to occasionally vent this time of the year and get it out. Oh, and I'm known as SVEN UNITED on FOX.com.

Getting old should not effect your prepping efforts one bit. If you are only prepping for yourself, ensure your efforts do not go unrewarded if you pass while waiting for a SHTF event to occur. Pass your blessings onto your family or friends so they can be as prepared as you were before your passing. PLEASE PUT THAT IN WRITING! Nothing like having the authorities come into your home after your passing and throw away your blessings that you have accumulated over the years. LIVING WILL & LAST T ESTIMATE is a legal way to ensure you get your preps to whomever you want them to got to.
