Avoiding/surviving fires seemed like a basic oversight in the prepping arena. Preppers spend lots of money on preps, supplies, special classes, training exercises ...
Clearing underbrush from around your shelter is totally the sensible thing to do....if you don't mind giving up the rest of your security. Cleared areas in the woods are aerial beacons to drones. The are obvious signs of habitation to any casual trespassers.
I was wondering if any other preppers had considered this problem and worked out a solution.
