Do you know the prepping basics? We all seem caught up in our own various projects or emphases that have to do with prepping, but occasionally it is a good idea to step back and review the basic rules of prepping.
In this episode I go over many of the basics on prepping, including a few chestnuts from the prepping world, like “two is one and one is none.” I discuss the basics of water, food, weapons, medicine, and many others. This was especially fun: at the end, I discuss the importance of getting a survival retreat in the country, with the added benefit that it could be a good real estate investment — then I provide a real life example!
According to ready.gov, this month is National Preparedness Month, so we all need to be good, obedient citizens and follow the government’s lead, and be prepared.
