The idea behind the 2014 SHTF assessment is a very short 20 question list that will give you an idea of where you stand and more importantly what you can focus on improving in the New Year. There will be much more than simply how much food, water and bullets do you have…and gas masks. The questions will touch on several categories including food and water, security, fitness, evacuation and community.
This is an assessment and is naturally not the end all be all. I think it is, however, something that will keep you honest. I think you will enjoy it and more importantly, I hope it will be useful. I am sure it will bring up great conversation as well as relevant concern and easily identifiable areas for improvement.
1. Do you have over 40 gals of water on hand
2. Do you have at least one renewable food source, i.e livestock, garden, aquaponics

How many did you get right?!!?! I really dont care. Your not going to get a gold star from me. This is an assessment not a quiz! This should give you an honest look at things you could improve upon in 2014. Take the time to get better and improve and listen to more I AM Liberty!!!!
