Publisher Comments:

Are you preparing for the collapse of society? Concerned about making it through the next category 4 hurricane? Looking to be less dependent on an increasingly fragile infrastructure? If so, you are definitely not alone. In this timely follow-up to The Ultimate Survival Manual, Prepare for Anything is packed with hundreds of gear, skills, and survival tips and strategies to help you be ready for anything, from economic collapse and terrorism to natural disasters and government surveillance.

All over America, families are transforming spare rooms into long-term storage pantries, planting survival gardens, unplugging from the grid, converting their homes to alternative sources of energy, taking self-defense courses, and stocking up on just about everything and anything imaginable. So what are all of these people preparing for? The motivations may vary, but the general consensus is that our world is becoming increasingly unstable, and there are a whole host of civilization-endangering events to be concerned about. Outdoor Life: Prepare for Anything will take you through these potential threats and teach you how to become prepared for them, from how to strategize and the right gear to your actions in the wake of a disaster—or simply how to get back to the land and become less dependent on the system. This is the book for the growing prepper movement, with hands-on hints, easy-to-use checklists, and engaging first-person stories to break down the crucial do’s and don’ts, educate yourself on various threats, and help to ensure that you ride out whatever Mother Nature, the government, foreign powers, or modern society can throw at you.

Includes vital information on:

• How to Prepare Skills to know in order to prep for a natural disaster, economic collapse, or societal restructuring.

• Stock Up What should be in your house, pantry, basement, bunker, and go-bag.

• What to Do How to handle yourself and your family in the wake of disaster, from creating a plan to leading your neighborhood watch.
