Be Prepared, Not Scared –
Given the volatile situation we find ourselves in around the world, if you have not been prepping, it’s time to start! This is a good starting point. Be prepared for you and your family, not scared. Being dependent upon the government is a losing bet.
Here are the notes, links and audio files from The Health Ranger’s live broadcasts over 4 weeks showing what he believes people should do to survive. If you find it helpful let others know so they can prepare too!
Notes start with week 4 and goes backwards.
Here are the audio files to listen to for each show.

Health Ranger Live Broadcast Notes
There are TWO online videos you should watch before week 4’s presentation:
Devaluation of the dollar (with Ron Paul):
Weimar Inflation, Post WWI Germany
Notes From Week #4:
The day will come when people holding U.S. dollars are wiped out. Do not be left holding worthless dollars when that day comes. Mark my words. That outcome is inevitable. Get out of U.S. dollar (diversify and convert to REAL things such as stocks, gold, food-producing land, etc.) using all the strategies we talked about over the last four weeks. In this coming economic crisis, the “winners” will simply be those who can minimize their losses. Many people will be financially wiped out, but you now have the solutions to make sure you are not among them.
I urge you to turn this knowledge into action now, and I leave you with this quote from Atlas Shrugged, a short speech from a character named Francisco:
“Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.” – Francisco’s money speech from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

Notes from Week #3:
Financial and Health Preparedness – Notes from Week #3
· Leave-the-country strategy:
o Learn Spanish!
o Countries of consideration: Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico
§ Can survive a complete collapse of ALL infrastructure.
§ They make their own tools, food, medicine.
§ Safety, money supply, water, food, climate, lowlands vs. highlands
§ The money you have goes a LONG way. Ten times as long on the same savings.
§ Politically more stable now due to new Constitution
§ Resources: Food, fuel, water, solar, gold. All plentiful
§ Vilcabamba is the valley of longevity (www.Vilcabambahomes.com)
§ Independent Ecuador real estate promoter: Gary Scott (GaryScott.com)
§ Lots of NN readers in Ecuador now.
§ Residency: Buy land worth $25,000 or more to qualify.
§ Gas is $1.40 per gallon. Avocados are 30 cents each. A little money goes a long way.
§ Keep a U.S. income, live on the cheap in Ecuador.
§ Affordable labor for cook, gardener, etc.
§ Come early. Don’t be part of the rush.
§ Immigration could be limited if the U.S. has a national emergency. Countries don’t want U.S. refugees! (Imagine people trying to sneak into Mexico!)
o Once you get there, start stockpiling water, seeds, etc. Same strategy as in the U.S.
o Make strong connections with local community. Sponsor students. Hire people. Be part of their economy.
o Travel idea: Have a letter from your lawyer that says you are traveling with “natural products” known to cause false positives with portable NIK drug tests. If they try to test your drugs, show them the letter and threaten to sue them for civil rights violations.
Notes on WATER (from previous email)
WATER is the single most important resources to think about for preparedness, and that means having the capability to filter water without using electricity. Below, I offer you several links and videos about Katadyn water products that I have personally used and recommend. I even own a Katadyn Expedition filter that pumps enough water for a small village.
You need to know about this company and its products, so take a look at the videos and product names I’m recommending below. I’ve also included an item from a different company: The Triton M2 Water Purifier (see below). You can find most of these at www.REI.com or www.Amazon.com or www.BrigadeQM.com or other camping and outdoors websites.
Katadyn Company Profile:
Katadyn Exstream XR (about $48)
Katadyn KFT Expedition Water Filter (about $1200)
Katadyn Base Camp Water Filter (about $54)
TRITON® M2 PORTABLE WATER PURIFIER KIT W/BAGS (about $85)
Aside from water, one of your most important resources is HEAT. How will you create heat to boil water or keep yourself warm? One of the most basic tools in any preparedness kit should be a basic fire starter.
I’ve played around with numerous fire starters, and the single most effective one I’ve ever owned is the Blastmatch. You need to get one, if you don’t already have one:
Blastmatch (about $22)
Get this important book on urban survival
There’s also a new book you need to know about that’s barely a year old. It’s called When All Hell Breaks Loose, and it’s a modern, practical guide to urban survival during hard times: Riots, Martial Law, pandemics, natural disasters, etc. This book will sell out soon, I’m quite sure. Grab your copy now through my Amazon store, which benefits the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center. It costs $13.57:
Notes from Week #2

· Expect new bankruptcies in January and throughout 2009

· Why you need a safe haven plan
· How to be safe where you are right now
o Protect your money against currency hyperinflation
o Avoid riots, avoid civil unrest
o Obey all law enforcement and military, do not resist
o Avoid violence
o Have a decoy stash in your home in case of confiscation
o Be prepared to hand over decoy quantities of guns and gold
o Have extra food stash to share with soliders, law enforcement (candy bars, etc.) but HIDE your real stash
o Share with neighbors if they share with you. Beware of alerting everyone to your level of preparedness.
· Have a GO bag
o 1/10 oz. gold coins
o Water purification tablets (Katadyn Micropur)
o Exstream XR Personal Water Purifier (Katadyn) at www.VitaCost.com

o Basic OTC medications: Painkillers, anti-itch, antibiotics, etc.
o Duct tape, superglue
o Pocket knife, fork, spoon, cup, tweezers
o Check out the Maxpedition packs
· Stay home strategy
o Avoid inner cities
o Avoid multi-housing units
o Consider infrastructure failures: Water, electricity, food, fuel, emergency services, health care, communications
o Consider the preparedness of your neighbors and the civility of your neighborhood
o “Civilized” neighborhoods break down in 48 hours.
o Store LOTS of water: Plastic bottles, cartons, barrels, etc.
o Own a Katadyn gravity filter to purify stored water. Can keep it stable with H2O2, or a few drops of plain bleach, or ginger juice
o Buy deadbolt locks for the door, use the door-jamming devices to prevent kick-ins
o Own lots of dried superfoods. Human-grade dog food: TheHonestKitchen.com
o Dried quinoa at WaltonFeed.com
o Have fish oil capsules for Vitamin D. (Best is Moxxor or LivingFuel Super Essentials)
o Consider heat or AC. How will you heat? Indoor heating is dangerous.
o Candles are dangerous. Indoor stoves dangerous.
o Consider: LEDs, flashlights, lanterns. But light attracts attention!
o Solar battery charger + spare NiMH batteries (Imedion, others).
o Best flashlight: Smith & Wesson Luxeon Rebel 5-Watt Tactical Flashlight (Amazon.com)
§ Strike element
§ LED lights
§ Common batteries, not special batteries
§ Doesn’t look like a weapon
o Consider how you will boil water. What is heat source for cooking?
o Weapons: Don’t own weapons unless you know how to use them.
o Mace is useless.
o Guard dog = Good idea. Share your Honest Kitchen food with your guard dog.
o Plywood and signs “You loot, we shoot.” Says it all.
o Strategy: Avoid attention. Lay low. Don’t flash bling, money or gold.
o Stay informed via radio.
o Don’t trust people at the door. Demand positive identification or don’t answer the door at all.
o Have safety drill for the family.
o Avoid going to “safety camps” with National Guard or troops. Try to hide in your home. They will move on. If you have food, water, etc., you will be safer at home than in a “safety camp.”
o Be calm, not threatening. Cooperate with authorities if you cannot avoid them.
· Leave the country strategy

Gold mining companies recommended by Stephen Leeb (read disclaimer below):
Leeb recommends being prepared to hold these for 3-5 years. There will be volatility, ups and downs. Gold could actually go DOWN in the short term, depending on what happens, but long term, he believes the trend is up.
