The best preparedness blogs out there
I am always quite amazed over things that people say in conversations related to prepping.
A lot of like-minded people who think a collapse is coming seem to have some pretty naive ideas as to what they will do after the collapse. They seem to think they’ll be able to pick up a rifle, head out into the woods, and live off the land. If that is your plan I urge you to try it now! Spend 7 days out in the wild bringing your gun, your bug-out bag, and anything else you plan to use to live off the land.
Chances are you won’t like it very much. We are really too used to our current level of technology and shy away from moving back to more “primitive” thinking. This has been a HUGE adjustment for my wife and I. We thought we were pretty tough but discovered that living the life we want is tougher. Every day we try new things and improve on them so when the time comes, we’ll be ready. Not just making “plans” but ready to go.
A lot of people think that when they see “real” signs of the collapse approaching that they’ll buy a little piece of land out in the country and just go then. Look at the news. The collapse is already in its early stages. The closer you get to the collapse, the less your money to do ANYTHING with will be worth. Compare the prices of things now to what they were a mere year ago. Scary.
A lot of people will grab their bug out bags and head out to the country-side. To where, I ask you? If you show up here I will be ready for MY family but will not be able to help you much. I think when things are scarce this will be the feeling all over the place. You have to help your own family first and then give charity where you can. I will surely not give away food that will cause my family to go hungry. If you search deep down in your heart you know you feel the same. Again, this is not saying that I will not provide charity, as I am a firm believer in helping when and where ever we can.
My advice is to find a place now. Prepare your place now. Live on your land now. Learn to farm now. Meet your neighbors now. The time for planning is over, the time for action is NOW.
