Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally Episode-626- Prepping from Starting Out to Advanced Tactics and was originally published on March 17, 2011. A lot has changed since this show originally aired and a lot has remained the same. One thing is clear though my call at the time to not freak the hell out over the Fukushima incident was pretty damn accurate.
The following are the original show notes from that episode…
With the disaster in Japan I am getting a lot of emails from brand new people and long time listeners, the basic question is “what should we do”? Well this may be hard for you to believe given the non stop media coverage of the burning reactor but the answer is, unless you are in Japan you should probably not do anything. That said getting out of Japan unless you are part of the relief efforts probably isn’t a bad idea.
You certainly shouldn’t go spend 100 dollars for a bottle of potassium iodine on eBay because you will be able to get all you want for about 15 bucks a bottle in about a month, there is really nothing for you to do, perhaps other than make a contribution to the relief efforts in Japan.
What we all should be doing right now personally is using this current disaster as a gut check of sorts. Rather than worry about some fictitious cloud of death, that just isn’t going to happen you should be asking the following. What would it have meant to me had this disaster occurred in California or New York? What if it had just been a tsunami, just a nuclear accident or just an earth quake but had happened much closer to me, would I have been prepared enough to shelter in place or get out of dodge?
With that in mind I think it is time we take a show to go back and just talk about prepping in general, the tenets of preparedness and self evaluation of how we would handle a disaster that wasn’t thousands of miles away.
