The One Thing Every Prepper Must Purchase Now

As a person with some common sense, you know items you need can become in short supply at any time. This can be due to disaster, civil unrest, or just people getting ready for a future event that hasn’t happened yet. You have a chance, if you act quickly, to pick up this much needed (and rapidly disappearing) item before it is too late.

You need maps!

You probably have not noticed that printed maps are in short supply already. And why should we notice:

  • We have smart phones and GPS, why would I need a map
  • I don’t go anywhere but to Wal-Mart and the local grocery store
  • I can Google it (or MapQuest it) and just print it out

All of those things are true. Today.

Here are a couple of “What Ifs” for you to contemplate.

What if there were a fire, flood, or earthquake and you needed to find an alternate route to get home or get away from home or get to your kids school? What if there were a long term power outage. No smartphone, internet, or printer?

If you have a bug out location for emergencies, could you follow an alternate route in the dark to get there without a map?

Why take the chance? Get some maps now while they are still available.

Here are some locations where you might be able to find a printed map.

  • AAA – if you are a member or know a member
  • Chamber of Commerce (sometime carries local city maps)
  • Tourist associations (Almost every state has a tourism office and the maps are usually free)
  • Truck stops
  • Wal-Mart (sometimes) but these are usually state maps or US maps.

If you want to take it to the next step (and yes you should) then get topographical maps. Especially of wherever your emergency bug out location is.

It’s a good idea to get 2-3 copies of maps when you can find them. Keep one set in the 72 hour kit in your car and one in your bug out bag. Inventory them routinely but never take them out. It is also best to keep them in a gallon size zip lock bag to keep them dry.
