Preppers Shipping Advisory ... Want it by September 10?

We've been asked, and we fully understand the concern many might be having at this point ...

September of this year is full of question marks and red letter dates for preppers. It seems most of those dates occur after about Sept. 10.

So if you are looking for your Safecastle order to arrive by about September 10--please try to place your order by the end of August. That gives us and our suppliers and the shippers adequate time to process your order.

(There are exceptions--such as SurvivalCave meats, which sometimes require up to two weeks to deliver.)

Bottom line: we're fully on-board with the sense of urgency--please place your orders as early as possible. This month is already hugely busy and if it gets any more so as we get closer to September, supply inventories can be affected.

Market-Meltdown Wake-up Call from Safecastle

This is your wake-up call ... don't snooze
Markets melting down, systems failing, panic spreading

Getting right to the point--the slide toward anarchy may have begun. Global investors are in full retreat. Greece lit the fuse, China spilled the gasoline. Wall Street and the other financial centers around the world are in turmoil. Starvation and panic is already front and center in Greece. In Europe and in Asia, banks and brokerages are unable to help their clients. It's all spreading in rapid fashion and one does not need much imagination to realize what comes soon after the inevitable rioting in the streets.
 
From where we sit--we can tell you with certainty and experience what happens in the preparedness marketplace. Supplies are depleted in no time. Backorders stretch into months. Factories shutdown when raw materials become unavailable. 
 
Bottom line--we can't promise we will be able to help you stock-up once the SHTF.
 
In the meantime, we ARE here, watching the news as closely as I'm sure you are, praying for the best, filling orders, making necessities available at the best prices we can swing.

Note that through July 15, we are still offering up some of our most popular products at extra steep discounts, while they remain available.

It's not the time to be comfortably numb!

A little stream-of-consciousness here ... based largely on what I am finding myself doing right now.

1.  There is a strong tendency right now to slide down in the swivel chair to just watch the markets and the global headlines. Maybe still denying internally that this might really be the beginning of the long-expected crash.

2.  Intellectually, it sure seems to fit the bill ... everything as it is now happening may in fact be accelerating downhill with little chance of it reversing course, even temporarily. The trick here may be to actually square up with that fact emotionally, calmly, with a focus on next steps.

3.  Not nearly the time yet to think bugging out or bunkering up, but to embrace the fact that at this point we are still ahead of the game in comparison to almost everybody else out in the meat world.

4.  So how to use that early advantage? That's the question of the day. The answer means something a bit different for each prepper, but this is that hoped-for early warning before TSHTF. Maybe.

Beware the Greek Canary! Watch and learn ... finish your preps now

The dominoes have begun to fall. It will be a relatively slow-motion cascade of crises from now through the next several weeks and mere handful of months.

The Greek default will turn out to be the trigger event that will cause not only a catastrophe in Greece, but will also quickly spread through much of Europe. The falling dominoes will ultimately criss-cross the globe, as the central banks fail to push the inevitable any further down the road.

Every day the news coverage will show the spreading fear and destruction, though some mainstream media outlets may try to keep it all on the low down.

Preppers Want a Warning Sign

Most folks have seen this coming for a long time, but we really have wanted a big flare in the sky or a warning shot across the bow to let us know that the expected collapse is imminent. Well consider this Greek debt default to be the early warning sign for your final preps if you are in North America.

Those in Europe--the urgency for you to make ready is great.

Astute and discerning preppers have already begun to move on this over the last 24 hours. If there is one thing I know it is the preparedness marketplace. This is already showing to be one of those rare events that will bring about panic buying of preps--particularly long-term storage food--to the point where suppliers will quickly have their warehouses emptied and customer waiting lists will stretch out for months.

I've been in the business for long enough that I have seen it happen two or three times. It hurts and it's frustrating. But it does happen and I put it today at about a 75% chance of happening again, starting this week.

Be forewarned. Stay safe.

International Space Station captures images of super-typhoon Maysak – video

Video shot from the International Space Station shows super-typhoon Maysak as it heads through the western Pacific en route to the Philippines. The island nation is on high alert with the typhoon, initially rated category 5, expected to make landfall on the weekend. British-based Tropical Storm Risk said Maysak would probably weaken to a category 2 typhoon, with maximum winds of up to 109mph, when it hits land
