Well, not really 12 steps…maybe a thousand or two. But, the journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step.
Buy-In. A true and deep understanding of just how important this journey will be. It will mean the difference between thriving and subsistence. The difference betweem Freedom and subservience. The difference between you and your family being responsible for your own happiness rather than an out of control government dictating the happiness that you must accept…OR ELSE.
OpSec. Operational security. An acute awareness and understanding that the rest of the world does not think or feel as you do. A large majority are the unaware sheeple that have been dumbed down in our public school systems have no clue. make sure that YOU DO.
Take stock. Understand intimately exactly what you and your family need on a regular basis. Know how much you consume on a weekly and monthly basis. Ask what you would do if there were no grocery or convenience store. What if the power outages were extended. Or, perhaps, your water supply was somehow interrupted. How would you manage? Be honest with your self.
Have a plan. Have 2. maybe 3. Put it in writing and discuss with your spouse. Read and read some more. Then go back and look at your plan and come up with some contingencies. Brain storm some “what ifs” and seek guidance.
Allocation will be key. Allocation of time, energy, resources, and space. (Home storage, gardens, animals, weapons, etc).
Make the journey exciting. Make the journey fun. But never forget that the journey is a necessity.
