What Did You Do To Prep This Week? [July, 12, 2019]

M.D. Creekmore Prep Week


Well, folks, it’s that time again! Last weeks segment did well with over 150 comments posted. Let’s see if we can pass 200 comments this week.

But before we get started, let’s talk about the changes here, what you can expect and why. I think you’ll love the change and get more out of it.

Five days a week (Monday through Friday) I will get up at 6:00 o’clock, drink a cup of coffee, eat breakfast, pour another cup of coffee and then head to my home office where I will scour the internet for the most 10 recent and vital news and happening from around the world and post those in a ten-point list with my thoughts and options.

This will be a HUGE time-saver for you because I’ll be the one spending several hours each morning putting this all together for you in a form that is easily skimmed over and digestible in the short amount of time.

You will be educated and entertain – I will cut through the clutter and noise of the internet and deliver to you what you need to know each day, including links to the original stories where you can go to read more if you’re interested in doing so.

No bots. No computer algorithms. Just me, each day’s import news, and you. You will be informed, you will be entertained, you will laugh, you might cry, or you might get pissed off by what you learn, but one thing is sure – you won’t want to miss it!

And in this same column (Monday through Friday) I will be posting a daily photo, this will not be a stock image but a photo that I’ve taken for you and publish for your entertainment and enjoyment. 

And that’s not all! Nope, I’m not done yet, there will also be a scripture of the day and maybe even a quote of the day…  

And every Saturday (yes, I’m posting early this week) there will be a new segment of “What Did You Do to Prep This Week”… This is all going to be a great change for the better.

Thank You!

Okay, let’s get on with this weeks “what did you do to prep this week” after all this is why you’re here reading this right…

First of all, the property that I told you all about last week that I had thought about trying to buy didn’t work out so as of right now I will be staying where I am. Where I am now is a great place; however, I wanted more land to homestead. And I’ll probably move to a larger parcel in the future, but not right now. Maybe next spring. 

When I put my current place up for sale, I will post it here like I did with my other p, and then you all can come look at it if you’re interested in moving to Tennessee. 

As for preps this week – I read “The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History” it’s great. If you are interested in real history and not the crap that you were taught in school, then you need to read this book!

I’ve been a fan of the show “The Dukes of Hazard” since I was a teenager and I always loved and wanted one of the Buck Knives like the ones that Bo and Luke Duke carried on the show.

So I bought the one below at a local fleamarket… what do you think?

Harvested a five-gallon bucket full of squash. And as you can see, more are growing rather quickly.


I also bought a few boxes (5 to be exact) of .22 CCI ammo and ordered “One Month Basic Food Kit” from Valley Food Storage, but I’ve not received it yet.  I’ve never ordered from them before – if you have then, please post a comment below about your experience. Thanks.
