About by Joe April 27, 2019 About JoeGreetings! “Slightly Irregular Joe,” here. Come in, put your feet up, and stay awhile. They’ll be plenty for us to talk about, figure out, and get preppin’.Welcome to our little corner of the web. 🙂I’ve had a few folks ask about this, so I’ll answer it up front — the nickname “Slightly Irregular Joe” came as kind of a joke, from my wife. Like those “slightly irregular” clothes you find in the discount clothes bins…But it makes sense in the way I handle things, so it’s stuck.“Slightly Irregular” means to ‘zig’ when most other folks ‘zag.’ Don’t follow the herd. And it’s part of how I got started into all of this.How This StartedOne morning watching the news, it hit me.These BIG changes in our country, and in the world, are getting way too scary. And how lately, things seem too unstable.Too… fragile.Unemployment. The 1% stripping the middle class down to a nub. Economy trashed. Terrorism. GMO’s, pesticides, corporate pollution. Corporate greed. I don’t need to tell you, it’s a growing ache of fear. Keeps me up at night.These feelings have grown stronger, now that I have two young kids.A Closer LookEver been in a supermarket the day before a big storm?People can be animals. Pushing and shoving, panicked. Grabbing much more than they could possibly need.Like emptying the shelves of all the water, taking as much as their cart will hold, leaving everyone else without.And that’s anticipating bad weather – a one day storm.What if there were a national crisis? How will I feed my kids? Keep my loved ones safe?This site is built to answer these questions.Finding SolutionsWhat you’ll find here is the best, most up to date information to help us each protect our families and loved ones, and help them to thrive in ever-changing, uncertain times — especially when everyone ‘else’ is clawing at that last bottle of water.We’ll zig while they zag.This place has a knack for finding those gold nuggets of the best, most useful, actionable, “no fluff” information, skills, and trainings anyplace.
