Resources and Encouragement to help you Prepare

Are you storing food, sundries,  necessities and other things for an uncertain future?  This is one of the main focuses in the Prepping (Preparedness) culture today.  GET STUFF.

While being prepared with a ‘good stock’ of whatever is both prudent and a wise investment given the economic climate, I believe there are many areas of prepping or preparedness that are widely overlooked by folks who choose this lifestyle.  Either because they are new or because they are panicked there is a great focus on the tangible prepping.  Often the thought of prepping stops there with a well stocked bunker or pantry and toiletries out the ears.

In the days ahead, we are going to explore some of the non-tangible things to prepare.  Things that rust and moth do not decay.  Things that no one can come in and steal.  Things that require practice, diligence and guts not credit, debit or cash.

  1. What I find is that no one is concentrating on things that will continue to feed you, or preserve your foods. A years worth of food is a good idea, except what happens when that food runs out? Will you have a garden, pressure canner, jars, dehydrator, freezer, a fishing pole, butcher knives, and other things to continue bringing in that food? I would rather concentrate on the long haul rather the short term of 1-2 years. If things get as bad as many of us are seeing, All that ‘stock’ and store bought foods won’t do you any good after they run out.

    Give a man a fish, let him eat for a day,
    Teach a man to fish, feed him for life.

    This goes without saying……. the skills and equipment will help you to survive more than a bucket of food. Get the skills and equipment to replace those buckets for life.

      Also – Heaven forbid a fire, or leak in the area of stored food – the POOF – GONE! We ‘preach’ this all the time. Buying a wall full of MREs is no way to prepare. It’s ALMOST just as short sighted as not preparing because it’s an ‘easy fix’. We need to learn old (lost) skills that our forefathers/foremothers had when building small communities and settling land. THEN we can rebuild when needed. But to rely on simply stored food is a dead end.
