Insurance Pitfalls – Real world stories from an insurance adjuster

It seems to be the very nature of preppers that we focus on the “dramatic stuff” – grid down, life-or-death scenarios, etc. While that’s a wise approach, it is not wise to ignore the sort of every-day personal disasters that we will all almost certainly face at one time or another.

We probably have a food storage program as insurance for a time when food would otherwise be unavailable. The key word here is “insurance”, and that was the topic of our first program for the August meeting. Insurance is an important part of being prepared, yet it is almost never discussed among preppers – we are changing that.

Most contact we have is with insurance salesmen who naturally have their own interest as well as ours, but this was presented by an independent insurance adjuster. Scott understands how the entire system works, and what we need to make sure that we are adequately insured in order to face life’s more typical disasters.

Container Gardening, Part 3 – and – Vegetable plants for container gardens

This portion of the meeting is a continuation of the “Kelly’s Corner” series. Information and downloads available here.


Also discussed, but not part of the scheduled topics:

  • Seminole pumpkin – Stephen brought in two that were harvested last Fall and have been outside in a pole barn since that time. Both are still in as-picked condition. Scott described how his family prepares Seminole Pumpkin (he had some for supper just before the meeting).
  • Discussion on ordering radios and on the upcoming September meeting.
