Getting Caught Up

Greetings! My name is John Wesley Smith. Doctor Prepper was kind enough to ask me to guest post from time to time.

In case you’re curious, I have my own blog site on preparedness and survival at

It’s been a while since the last entry here, so we’ve got some catching up to do. A lot has been happening, and Doctor Prepper has been a busy guy. As he might put it, he’s been busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger in a Corpus Christi hurricane!

Doctor Prepper’s best-selling book, Making the Best of Basics, is now in its 12th edition. And I’m excited to let you know it’s available in digital form as well as in print. Now you can view it on your computer. Plus, you get bonus material when you order the no-wait/no-freight electronic version.

There will be more to come on this soon, but for now, you can click here for the Family Preparedness Handbook.

Our Preparedness Radio Network on Blog Talk Radio has grown by leaps and bounds. We have a total of 25 show hosts, most of whom broadcast live weekly, discussing various aspects of a preparedness lifestyle. You can gain a wealth of great info to boost your prepping efforts by listening to these experts, authors, and practitioners of preparedness, survivalism, self-reliance, and urban and ex-urban homesteaders.

All Preparedness Radio Network shows are archived so you can download them and listen at your convenience––free of charge. You’re invited to go to DestinySurvival Radio on Thursday afternoons at 1:00 PM CST. I’ve interviewed guests about long-term food storage, earthquake preparedness, prepping for people with disabilities, and more. You can find out more here.

I look forward to sharing more with you about other shows and their hosts. I’ll also be telling you more about Making the Best of Basics. And maybe I’ll toss in a few other odds and ends about prepping, too.

As I like to tell my e-mail subscribers, “Have a great day, and keep prepping!”
