Prepping isn't always about food, water. guns and ammo.
It is also about knowledge and pratical applicaition.
Many people think you have to have tons supplies... be it food, guns, packs, knives, stoves, fuel, or whatever else you can think of.
Those all assist you in helping with your survival and I am sure they will help you, but you need to be able to use them correctly. There are a lot of people that think...hey I have a gun and a pack, now I will instantly become a rambo or some other billy bob bad ass....without knowing how to use the items that they just purchased.
Use your mind, it is by far your best tool....I just wanted to put that out there for everyone.

I'm finally getting around to it due to comet elenin/solar flare warnings & despite being agnostic & disliking christianity a verse from the bible helped me decide too.
It went something like "the aware man can prepare for what lies ahead while the blind man stumbles ignorantly forward & suffers the consequences"
made sense to me.
I'm currently trying to convince some family to save their own funds rather than getting insurance & to allocate these savings to various needs themselves, to buy fireproof safe's & put their savings in that or get a security deposit box (which is as far as I know is legally still your property even if the bank goes bust)
I'm trying to buy heirloom seeds & find a solution to trying to develop the equivalent of a portable greenhouse & currently considering electromagnetic shielding or non-electric options to essentials. I am still the only person I know making any preparations whatsoever.
not keen on the bug out option but I'm a noob to this whole way of thinking though so pretty unsure about alot of it.
