“When disaster strikes, the time to prepare has passed.

Steven Cyros


There is a lot of crossover between the worlds of family preparedness, resiliency, homesteading and off-grid living. Add in gardening, frugal living and reducing our carbon footprint and you end up with a group of wonderful people who have a lot in common. This makes a marriage between Storey Publishing, the people who put out the best books on all of these subjects, and Lehman’s Hardware, the people who sell the best tools and equipment to accomplish the tasks necessary to achieve these lifestyles, something special. As a way to celebrate that connection, we’re having a giveaway

Storey and Lehman’s are teaming up to offer Lehman’s Family Preparedness/Survival Kit with a signed copy of my book, Prepping 101, to one lucky winner. Whether you are just getting started or already well on the road to a more prepared life, you will find lots in this giveaway to interest you. The kit includes two red backpacks stocked with everything a family of four would need to survive for three days. You will get food, water, a combination light/emergency radio and first-aid supplies. You will also get sleeping bags, a tube tent, lots of basic hygiene supplies and lots more.

The give-away will begin on September 10th and run through October 8th. You can enter through the Storey website or through Lehman’s. I am so honored to have Prepping 101, included in this package.

I need to be serious for a moment. We live in uncertain times. Storms are becoming more frequent and more intense. We live with the threat of cyber-attacks that can severely disrupt daily life. Our just-in-time delivery system is fragile. We all need to be prepared. It’s the responsible thing to do. This giveaway speaks to all of us and I hope you’ll participate
