For a couple of months now, there has been something in my gut telling me that I need to be more prepared. Something telling me that we need to take responsibility and make sure we have provisions and a plan for the unknown.
I lived through the Y2K hype and had some preparations then, but what I am getting now is a totally different feeling. It is not based on fear of the unknown, but it is like I know something will be happening. That is why I am writing this blog.
There are several great sources of information out there, but then at the same time, there are more resources telling you how valuable they are and are trying to get your money from you. I don’t really want your money, but I do want you to be prepared.
I mean, what kind of person would I be if I withheld vital information from you that would help save your life or the life of someone you knew? This is really what it comes down to. The plus side for me is that if you are prepared, it puts less of a burden on me, which in itself is a great benefit to me and my family.
This is similar to the pack mentality that wants people to be vaccinated. The more people that are vaccinated, the less likely that the herd at large will be threatened by the disease. Of course in this day and age, viruses mutate so that our vaccines are less and less effective and the medical community pushes antibiotics in such a way that our natural resistance to sickness is reduced and the viruses build up a resistance to the antibiotics that we pump into our system.
So, I will detail my prepping experience to help share my successes and failures as I navigate my way through the information out there plus the life experiences that guide me.
I might be a little different than other preppers in that I am not prepping in fear of any major calamity, terrorist attack, or the US government trying to take away my civil liberties. I do not know what will happen, but I do know something will happen at some point because something always happens.
I might be late to the prepping party, but at least I am here.
