I am finally getting interested in survival and being prepared in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. These types of things usually come upon us when we think that “it won’t happen to me.”

There are a lot of things that we can do but a lot of us get hung up on all of the information that is available and never take action. We try to find the perfect plan so that we can get started but there is no perfect plan so we never start.

Find a survival blog or board that has a large following and just start doing something. Start saving up some canned goods and water, planning for defense and protection, buy a generator, install solar power, just get started.

Survival Talks will list some gifts that would be appreciated by those who are devoted survivalists and preppers. I know that there are a number of things that I would like to get as a gift to add to my survival skills and preparation. So those are the kind of things that I will be looking at here.

To survive you have to be prepared.
