Announcing the Prepper Pete and Friends Amateur Radio Club

Exciting times are coming to Prepper Pete and Friends!

We’re preparing the release of the next book in the series, as well as an entire set of books focused on the exciting world of Amateur Radio.

Now YOU can join the Prepper Pete and Friends Amateur Radio Club (PPFARC)!

Our purpose is “to further the exchange of information and cooperation between members, to promote radio knowledge, fraternalism, and individual operating efficiency, and to so conduct club programs and activities as to advance the general interest and welfare of Amateur Radio in the community.”

Everyone interested in Amateur Radio communications is eligible for membership, with the following levels:

Full membership is open to licensed Radio Amateurs. Full membership includes all club privileges as well as rights to hold a club office and to vote for club officers.

Associate membership is open to those actively engaged in study leading to an Amateur Radio license and all other interested persons. Associate membership includes all club privileges except for the right to hold office and vote for club officers.

Junior membership is open to those who want to connect with others interested in the Prepper Pete and Friends community with an additional goal of promoting engagement with Amateur Radio. Junior membership does not require an Amateur Radio license or allow one to hold office or vote for club officers.

Applications for membership shall be submitted at regular meetings or via the website. The President may provide immediate provisional approval; full approval shall be voted upon at the next regular meeting.

We meet the First Tuesday of each month via Zoom here.

Prepper Pete’s Coloring & Activities Books – Coming Soon!

We’re excited to announce that Prepper Pete and Friends will soon be releasing a coloring book to help engage kids with learning about the importance of being prepared!

Our first book will be focused on coloring pages, featuring characters from our existing books, as well as our upcoming “Be Prepared: A Be Ready Book for Kids” (scheduled to be released later this year!).

The second book will include coloring and fun activities that are designed to teach and entertain.  We’ve got quite a few fun ideas we think kids will absolutely love!

We’re also looking to hear from you! What are some fun ideas you may have (or that you’ve seen) in coloring and activities books that could help Prepper Pete teach kids about the importance of being prepared?  If you give us something we haven’t already thought of and we use it… you’ll get a free copy of the book when it ships!

Stay safe and Keep Prepping!

Disaster Survival Network – Interview by James

I just haDSNs the honor and pleasure of an interview by James of Disaster Survival Network! If you want to hear about some background, my “why moment” for Prepper Pete, and a great discussion on teaching children all about Prepping… tune in for a bit!

As James echoes, “the importance of teaching our children from a young age about Prepping can not be stressed enough.  If we teach our children from a young age it becomes a lifestyle for them and is nothing ‘strange’ or new.”

Kickstarter Campaign Coming Soon!

YOU can heBe Preparedlp us get the word out! That means helping keep our kids safe by preparing them for day-to-to emergencies they may face.

You might have heard of crowdfunding before – that’s when everybody chips in to fund something – and that’s exactly what we’re going to be doing with the next Prepper Pete book , “Be Prepared: A Be Ready Book for Kids!”

The goal?  Fund the initial setup, illustration, printing, and a good chunk of advertising fees in one fell sweep!

Where do you come in?  You’ll be able to participate in this campaign by funding anywhere from a very little to a very big amount.  Each tier of sponsorship will net you something cool – an ebook, a book, an advertising opportunity, or perhaps just some good ole’ Prepper Pete swag.  Tiers will be determined soon enough – let’s just say there will be a span and everyone will be able to participate.


The final goal? $10,000

If you’re like me… you look at that fee and think, “What the what?!”  But remember – that includes mailing copies to many funding participants, bloggers, etc, an actual marketing campaign (which we’ve not done before), paying the illustrator, and much, much more.

As the author, I won’t see any payment from this amount… and I’m good with that. I’m more concerned with getting the word out to help keep kids safe.  Besides, “Good things come to those who wait!”

The catch? We’re using Kickstarter – it’s all or nothing!

If you’d like to be notified, please sign-up below. Don’t worry – no spam… ever.  Only thing you’ll get is an occasional update and you’ll be notified when we start the campaign!
