WHAT IS IRON AND LED PREPAREDNESS ABOUT?
Welcome to Iron and LED Preparedness. This is not your typical "beans and bullets" doomsday prepper site. While those things are certainly important, I will be covering much more than that here. My goal is to provide tips and advice for everyday preparedness, fitness, short term and long term disaster survival, as well as full blown SHTF (shit hits the fan) planning just in case. You will also find product reviews ranging from supplements to survival meals to firearms and many things in between. Follow me on my journey and let's navigate these uncertain times together!
WHAT'S WITH THE NAME/HOW THIS GOT STARTED
The typical doomsday prepper might say iron and lead because guns and ammo are the go to. For me, the iron is just as much for "pumping iron" because being fit and healthy is critical for survival. The "LED" is for light-emitting diode, such as truck and camper light bars, energy efficient bulbs, etc. Energy efficiency is something a lot of people don't consider when it comes to prepping and it's something I'll be covering in detail later.
This all got started with the first round of Coronavirus panic and all the riots over the summer of 2020. The first time I went to the store and there was barely any food left there I realized just how fragile this whole system that we live in truly is. I started doing some research and when you wake up to just how flimsy the supply chains are for food and the things we use on a day to day basis it seemed insane to me just how totally unprepared I was to protect and provide for my family in a real emergency situation. Thus began my deep dive into everything that I'll be covering on this site going forward.
Iron and LED Preparedness is truly a passion project for me. I hope you enjoy browsing my site and all of the content I have to offer. Take a look around; perhaps you’ll discover what fuels you as well. Read and enjoy!
Here are a few of the upcoming things I am working on..
I'll be installing and doing a review of a Renogy 3 panel solar power setup for my travel trailer.
I will be doing a review of a few of my plate carriers and my belt load outs.
