Some truth for folks about me.
I’m not worried about North Korea. Not scared of nuclear attacks. Yellowstone? Nope. New Madrid fault either. I was never worried about the protests when they started burning and looting my town. I’ve never been scared of being robbed. I laugh at snow storms and hurricanes. I laugh at the thought of being invaded by foreign countries. EMP? Not too concerned with that either.
You want to know why? We have food, ammunition, meds and medical supplies, weapons, precious metals, reliable vehicles, communications, and tools. We have skills that go from simply making a fire to tracking and hunting. You know… Real survival stuff. We also have skills in trades. I have at least 4 reliable skills that I can trade.
I shake my head at a lot of “seasoned” preppers that get all hyped up over the latest headlines or rumors. I feel bad for those newbies who are looking for a direction to head.
Keep in mind, I’m still here to learn, but I’m also here to help too. There’s still A LOT I have left to learn. I write this post from am experienced prepper’s mindset. A calm understanding that things could happen at any time, and we stand ready to face those challenges without fear but determination to make it.
Preparedness isn’t stuff. Preparedness is mindset. The hard look of fight and determination in the face of adversity whether that be illness, income loss, or disaster.
How about you?
