One of the most important things you can acknowledge is that you can't know everything about everything. At work, as a team lead and a trainer, I always drill this into everyone. "You don't have to know all the answers, you just need to know where to go to find them."

On that note, I've invited two friends to help me out here and offer their personal insights and tips. To respect their privacy, I will let them introduce themselves to you in whatever way they see fit, but I'm anxious to see what nifty tidbits they have to share with us.

Welcome and thank you guys.

Where To Start?

There are dozens of reasons to Prep, ie. natural disasters, epidemic, social disorder, economic crash, zombie apocalypse, or alien invasions. Ok, some of those make me snicker, but we all have our fears. Often, once we feel securely prepped in one area, we branch out and prep for another. It's all about having a foundation and building, building, building. I think most real preppers never consider themselves done.

So... How the hell do you start? I remember asking my bff that. While prepping has always been a want for me, she started years before I did. She simply said, "When you go to the store, even if it's only $5 more, buy extra." That was about it. While she was right, that wasn't what I was looking for. My goal here is to tell you everything I wish I'd been told... and eventually, maybe some of you will get to the point where I'll be looking to you for ideas.

First, and foremost, assess your likely situation.

Consider your region and your likely thr…

What The Hell Am I Trying To Do Here??

For several months I've been asked by friends to do a "what's in my Bugout Bag" video and I've been asked about prepping in general. Many people want to prep and find the whole thing overwhelming and simply don't know where to start. When the topic of prepping comes up in the chatroom, everyone is an expert and everyone has 15 random things you MUST KNOW NOW!!

Holy shit, overwhelming.

I'd been asked to lead a chat "class"/open discussion.... well, it's just to damn open. Don't get me wrong, I love personal insight, but people just starting out need to start with the basics. You don't need to worry about an arsenal if you don't have food to get you through the weekend. If you will more than likely have to "bug out" is 250 gallons of water really beneficial?

I've been seriously prepping for about 3 years. I am by no means an authority on the issue, but I've had my *facepalm* moments and I've had my AH-HA!! mom…

Tidbit: Media and Prepping

While I have a definite format for the initial set up of this blog, there are periodically other things I'd like to discuss, little bits of wisdom I stumble across and want to share, but that don't necessarily fit in to where we're at. From now on I will list them under the label "Tidbits" for your searching pleasure.

I'd like to discuss media and prepping. There's a lot of bullshit out there and there's some hidden gems. Hopefully we've reached a point where you feel like you've at least got some direction and objectives. The most important thing to remember is that you are the best judge of your needs and abilities. Look to others for advice and out of the box ideas.

This is the point that I seriously started watching survival shows as study material. Don't get me wrong, you can't learn to be a survivalist from tv or youtube, but you can get ideas, find mistakes, and learn new concepts. Example. All survival kit lists have some sort …
