So how are your preparations going?
Hi, as many of you know I do what are now called "prepper" videos.
I do however not consider myself a prepper. That term is a media term meant to send people like me into the fringe.

I am simply a guy with a young family. With the world the way it is, the poison in our food, the evil of government we thought it would be a good idea to depend on ourselves.

I do not see dates, or panic everytime the Dow goes down, I just slow and steady become more self sufficient.

So how are you doing?

Are you preparing for an "event" or jsut trying to get off the grid? By sharing your story, no details if you are worried, you might inspire others to prepare.

So here are some things that I have done.

1)Moved from Southern CA 6 years ago.

2)Planted big garden

3)Bought guns, ammo, parts, mags

4)Store water and rain catch system

5)Got to know my neighbors!

6)Raise chickens for eggs, just killed a rooster (first time killing anything)

7)Pressure and water bath preserve garden

8)dehydrate garden

9)Became a paramedic

10)became a firefighter

11)train with above skills

So how are you guys doing?

Re: So how are your preparations going?
Nice skill set that many will someday wish they had.

Odd what you said about "preppers". Everything has to be a label to divide, doesn't it? By the term, our grandparents would be "preppers," for planning ahead for their families and securing enough food in the event of a crop failure.

In the days ahead, there will be plenty of time for people to reflect on those notions, won't there?

 Quoting: Xannixon


I would invest it into things with real value. Now that you have stored food, try to start growing your own. Maybe a water filter, berkey etc

Do not get rid of all your cash, people will still take it over most things in an emergency. I use silver as a safe shelter for my $$ I buy on the lows and sell on the highs. I bought at 20 sold near 50 and that is how I had enough monoey for my chicken coop.

First things first: water, food, shelter (warmth in winter), and a way to protect these things

Re: So how are your preparations going?
i live in an apt, so it's a little more difficult to store adequately (plus no patio/porch/yard for a small garden), but already have a spot carved out in my b.o.b. to take my hanging basil plant! Psh you laugh, but I'm gonna be chilling out with a nice cup of basil lemonade whilst the world is going haywire! :D

not too easily- I have 4+ mo of food stored for close family members (of course they all believe nothing will happen but will they be damn happy to be eating my canned food!) There is a place where one can rent a garden plot but haven't had the money to do so yet. Thinking of trying a vertical planter tho- like those tomato plants?
