We have been slowly preparing since Y2K. In the last 2 years we have done 70% of this list.

I always feel that I need to read hundreds of pages in books and pages on pages of forums to get to the “meat and potatoes” of ideas and concepts. I work better from lists with small descriptions next to them.

The main thing we prepare for is loss of income. I make a better than average salary so that allows my wife to stay at home and home school our kids.
