I like to be prepared because I'm tired of seeing people waste time/money on frivilous things and then cry or pout when they lose power for an hour
or get a flat tire and rely on a cell phone.
I prep because I don't want to be that person.
I feel it's always better to be prepared than to be caught off guard in any situation.
Maybe my training taught me that.
Maybe my love of the outdoors taught me that.
It makes sense to be prepared for the unknown...even just a little.
In my opinion, It doesn't make sense to ignore the writing on the wall.
Either way, it's just a good feeling to know that if something happens, I don't panic.
I guess it's just part of being aware of my surroundings.
No matter where I'm at, I try to think of the best possible route...in or out.
Now I just have to help others to start relying on themselves...
