Wow - look what Gold and Silver prices are doing today! Good for everyone that has some, but I see it more as an indication of what the future holds. When investors/wealthy people get scared, they buy gold as a hedge against inflation - all that buying causes the price to jump (supply and demand). Get ready for some inflation! How do we prepare against inflation? Buy stuff now. It's time to fill in those prep gaps before prices go through the roof. It's like buying it onsale at today's prices. Be prudent - buy stuff that will get used. Buy stuff that can be stored. Buy stuff that is useful or can be traded/bartered. A major portion of prepping is paying attention to the world around you and making adjustment accordingly. Watch, think and prepare.
