ReadyNutrition Readers, hopefully you are never in one of the examples…and really hopefully, not the same guy or gal in all three of them (that would really be bad luck, wouldn’t it?). The point is that weird things, such as auto accidents, earthquakes, or terrorist Jihadists assaulting Chic-fil-A happen virtually all the time, now. You may be just the innocent bystander or unwilling participant mentioned in one of these tragedies. We hope that isn’t the case.
But if it is? You had better be as ready as you can. Let’s talk about some things that could give you a winning edge that you may be able to tote around on your person, either in your pockets or in a small bag. We’re going to address some common problems that these unlucky individuals are facing in each of these scenarios.
Bad wounds – laceration, impaled wood, and a bullet. All are serious, and each of them will require immediate medical attention. The problem is you may not have the time to wait until trained personnel reach you, and (in the case of a SHTF event) they may never reach you. But maybe you have these, for starters:
To summarize, these are a few things you can tote around with you in a jacket or cargo pocket that will give you an immediate edge when a situation arises that calls for you to work on it immediately. Spread it out and make kits as such for your family. Remember: when something happens to them and you’re working on the problem, use their stuff…your stuff is for you, and if you “go down,” they can go to it and treat your problem…with your supplies. Stay ready and rock steady!
A little bit of that prep beforehand goes a long way. Familiarize yourself with it and all of the capabilities at your disposal. A pile of supplies that you don’t know how to use is just a pile of supplies. Keep fighting that good fight, drink coffee, make pemmican with my recipe, and have a good one! JJ out!
