Well, first off I live in Southern California and I consider myself to be lucky to live here. At least from a Prepper perspective. It’s warm and you don’t have to worry about snow or freezing weather. I don’t really remember what started me on prepping but I suspect it had something to do with the financial disaster in 2008.
The economy was in shambles and unemployment soared. I saw inferior leadership with our President and Congress and I knew something wasn’t right. Call it intuition or just a “feeling” but I firmly believe you need to take a good look at your own self sufficiency if you really want to have chance to live decently when our “Greece” comes. I have been prepping for years. I wish I can say I had a deep stash of food, bulk items and armament like you, but I don’t. Times were tight there for a while but luckily I was able to survive on the preps I had. But I envy you if you had the money and resources to put to your Prepper project together.
I spend most of my time working and then looking for new ideas about prepping. The internet resources are amazing and one thing constantly surprises me. The shear knowledge of people! People are so smart and resourceful! That makes me feel good and gives me hope. Besides that, I have become intrigued by the sheer level of knowledge you need to have to be a good prepper. You never can stop learning self sufficiency.
This blog is just my thoughts on prepping and what I do. A collection of things I learned along the way. If these ideas can help you then your on your way to being secure.
