Day 26: You Have What?

Featured

Hey there everyone, we are on the final push everyone… you are almost there… just a few more days!! We have had a few challenges this month related to your kits… from your car, to work, to your home kit.. they are all important because we just do not know where we may be when the bad thing happens. But sometimes it’s the unusual that catches our attention and makes us consider something we may have never thought of ourselves.

DAY 26 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    Today’s challenge once again is related to your kit… but in a little different way. Today we want to talk about the most unusual item in your kit, and why you have it as part of your preparedness kit. Take a pic or create a short video sharing why you have this item in your kit and why others should consider adding it to theirs as well.

Level Up: 5 pts For today’s Level Up… we want you to take a serious look at your preparedness supplies and let us know how many days you and your household are prepared for. It does not matter if you are just starting and only have a few items or have been a lifetime prepper, it’s important to be honest with ourselves about how long we think we could survive without assistance from the communities we are all part of. Share with us as well your plan to increase your readiness in the next year.

 

Find Allies:  Recruit friends and family members to play 30 Days, 30 Ways….

Thanks again to everyone who particpated in the 2017 challenge. We hope you enjoyed this years game and look forward to 2018!!

That’s a Wrap!!

We just want to thank everyone who participated in this year’s 30 Days 30 Ways Challenge!  We had a great time bringing you the challenge and look forward to starting next years preparations.  Looking back at this year’s challenge, we once again had players in many states and even a few countries.  We were happy to see so many new players this year participating in the challenge. Close to 70% of those who took the challenge took if for the first time!!  We credit our returning players for this as you recruited your “allies” along the way.

We are busily working on finalizing points for everyone who participated in the challenge, and should be connecting with winners within the next few weeks.  At that time we will announce the winners.

This Challenge would not be nearly as successful if it was not for all of our Community Partners and Sponsors!  We would especially like to thank the Emergency Kit Cook Off, the Regional Water Consortium and 30 Days, 30 Ways UK, for once again partnering with us to bring a few special daily challenges.

As we finish up this year’s challenge, we again thank all that particpated, took, shared, lurked and watched this years challenge.  We will see you in 2018!!
