Task 26: 6 Months to a Year

Featured

Hey Everyone, Its Eric once more from the 30 Days gang here with your day 26 Challenge.

One of my biggest pet peeves about preparedness across this country is that we have competing messages in regards to how long one should be prepared.. From 3 days, 7 days, 10 Days, to two weeks ready… I see all of these messages in different parts of the country.

But if 2020 has taught us anything its that perhaps we need to take a long term look at preparedness. Making it not just something we do once, and put away, hoping we never need to use it, to a way of life. A lifestyle that keeps a few extra items on hand, rotates, and adds to those stockpiles when we can, and building a much longer outlook toward preparedness.

DAY 26 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    For your day 26 challenge, we want you to share with us a little about your long term planning. Share any goals or objectives you would like to achieve along your preparedness journey.

Level Up: 5 pts For today’s level up, share with us tips and tricks to help others up their game when it comes to long term planning for disasters and emergencies. As always, remember extra points for pictures and videos… be creative!

 

Find Allies:  Recruit friends and family members to play 30 Days, 30 Ways…. Build Your Network!!  Each day a person you recruit completes a 30 Days 30 Ways task, your points double for that days task. The more individuals you convince to play, the more points you can earn for each days challenge.
