That's right, we are in MASSACHUSETTS!
Be ready for anything. Protect your family. Survive the worst that man - and nature - have to offer.
If there’s one thing John Wayne admired, it was someone who could stand on their own two feet and take care of themselves no matter what the day might bring. In his films, he played everything from explorers of the western frontier to self-sufficient men who understood how best to handle even the worst disasters that nature or man could throw at them. The value of these skills, and the ability to stand on one’s own two feet, not matter what happens, wasn’t lost on Duke, who valued individualism and self-reliance above all else.
With that in mind, the editors of The Official John Wayne Collector’s Edition Magazine are proud to publish The Official John Wayne Handy Book of Emergency Preparedness – just the thing you need to ensure the safety of yourself and your family should disaster strike.
The book includes 100+ tips and techniques for prepping your home and family for disaster, whether it be natural or manmade, surviving at home when sheltering in place is the best option, or bugging out and hitting the road when it’s not.
You'll find detailed step by step guidelines for:
- Preparing your mind for conflict
- Finding or building medical supplies
- Administering first aid
- Mitigating the effects of disaster on morale and boredom
- Finding and storing food for the long haul
- Finding, storing and purifying water
- Cooking when you haven’t any gas or electricity
- Heating your home or staying warm wherever you are
- Cooling your home or warding off the heat wherever you are
- Bugging out with the right equipment and surviving on the road
