Here are some tips to get you started:

Prepping in the News: Deaf Preppers, Tsunami Awareness and CERT?

NEWSFLASH!  Today (Saturday, March 17) only, my e-book,  7 Survival Skills You Must Learn to Be Safe in Tough Times Ahead, is 100% FREE on Amazon.com!  Just click the link embedded in the name, and have at it!  There are no strings; however, I would be ever so appreciative if you would leave me an honest review!  Thanks so much, and I hope you enjoy reading!
