Not too exciting, and probably a big blow to the Hollywood crowd's perception of 'preppers'...
I purchased a bicycle and related equipment to transition my commute to & from work from a car to bike. It's about 10 miles each way. So on a week when there are no storms, it would be about 100 miles on bike.
I really don't need additional exercise and that wasn't the purpose of this venture. However I am looking at cutting expenses and working toward a debt free life. That's my huge motivator. My 2012 prepping focus is financial.
So...if they ocassionally peak in S&P forums for insight, I apologize to the National Geographic folks for such a boring and possibly rational prep post.
