Kicking it off a little early. So, since we're not quite there yet, what are your plans? For me, keeping finances in check. Battening down whatever hatches I can. The year of course, and the next several are framed by the fact that a socialist demon who believes his own failed policies is going to reinforce the need to keep prepping. While we probably should never stop, if the election had turned out differently, I was looking forward to relaxing a little since upon reflection I started getting revved with prepping after Nov 2008. Funny that. I get the funny feeling preps may be consumed before this is all over. Again, its financial. More than anything, and keeping the pantry topped off. I havent bought anything that goes boom since 2008 and am pretty much no, lost all that in a tragic boating accident. I would suggest before the year actually ends that you look into renewing any FAK's since apparently that stupid medical equipment tax kicks in on Jan 1 and is alleged to go right down to tongue depressors. So, if you need to get it, get it now. Even though its only a couple percent I am going to strive mightily to avoid paying anything extra to The Beast for the evil scheme. And you? Plans for the new year?
