Tanyard Whitebloom is not new to survival prepping. In this introduction he admits, “I started this book not knowing that I was actually writing one. As I spoke to several friends about prepping, they all replied, “I know I have to do that, but I just don’t know where to start!” So I thought I would write down a few survival tips for them. Those tips ended up being several pages long and the basis for this book. I guess I know so much about prepping because I have been interested in survival planning since before it was really popular. This comes from the fact that I have been in just about every type of natural disaster since I was a kid.” In this book Whitebloom urges everyone to “start somewhere” and begin to prepare with simple survival plans for disaster.
There are several scenarios Whitebloom mentions in this book for which to prep. These include Survival plans for economic collapse, prepping for floods, prepping for earthquakes, prepping for blackouts, prepping for hurricanes, prepping for tornadoes, and prepping for civil unrest. Whitebloom’s eight steps can be applied to them all.
