Preparing for collapse

One of my favourite bloggers on the collapse scene is Irv Mills from Ontario, Canada. Irv is currently writing a series of posts with advice on preparing for the collapse of industrial civilisation.

The blog is called The Easiest Person to Fool.

I can’t remember how I found Irv’s blog; I suppose I just followed a link, as you do. When I find a new blog I always read the ‘about me’ section first. I want to know who this person is, their backgound and qualifications, if any, and their reasons for writing. When I read what Irv had written about himself and his beliefs, I could have been reading about myself. I knew I was going to like this blog.

So far he’s up to part 8 in the series on preparing for collapse. The full list of posts is below. There’s some very good advice there. I’ll add a link to new pages as they appear. He also does a regular post on what he’s been reading each month and there are often some interesting links there, too.

    I must add my thanks. I’ve worked my way through Irv’s marvellous blog and am now doing some thinking about adapting in place. My approach is going to be to take steps that would be beneficial whether or not significant change occurs during my lifetime (I’m approaching sixty). For example, I’m going to word harder on my food production and preservation. Also, I recently lost weight and had been planning to declutter the larger clothes from my house. Now I am looking at them and thinking they could be a future source of material if things do go pear shaped (I can sew). Alternative energy source/s, water options, heating options, cooking options… The mind is boggling and there is so much to learn and consider. Best wishes, Specks.

      Thanks for the comment, Specks. I’m glad you’re still out there and still reading. I expect to lose a lot of readers with the change in blog topic; it won’t be to everyone’s liking, that’s for sure. There is so much denial out there. If I can get just a few more people to wake up and understand, and they can reach a few more, I think it’s worth it.
