Anyway, some of you may be wondering what a prepper is. Well, a prepper is someone who prepares for the unknown. I heard there is even a television show out now about preppers. We do not watch tv at our home. Well, we do. We watch DVD's and Blu-rays but have not had a satellite dish or cable in over 5 years.
Back to the subject at hand. We have been prepping for about 3 years now. We are not die hard, hard core or anything like that but the world is getting unstable with the national and global economy, natural disasters, and world conflicts. I just want to be able to take care of my family if something happens.
Do not judge me. I am not crazy. (Well, I am but that has nothing to do with why I am a prepper.) Click on this link that was put out by the American Trucker Association (When Turcks stop, America stops)
I do not know what tomorrow holds but I want to be prepared. I do not want to fight my friends and neighbors for items because no one was ready. I want to be able to help them out if something happens. I am not just talking national. It could be loss of power from a few days to a few weeks due to an ice storm or tornado. I do not want my children crying for food. I want to be ready.
Everything I have saved and purchased can be used if nothing ever happens. I have one room strictly full of shelves filled with supplies and groceries. We have flour, sugar, rice, and beans in 5 gallon buckets. We have quite a bit of water and water purification tablets. My family knows how to hunt and fish. We have 2 gardens and I do a lot of canning. Sometime I will do a full post about all we have done to prepare, along with showing you the contents of our 72 hour kits. Is that something you all would be interested in seeing/reading about?
Are you doing anything to prepare for a disaster of some type? What are you doing? If not, would you like to share why not?
