What is Prepping really ?

Published by admin on 28-Jan-2017 20:38 (542 reads)

Prepping is one of those topics, like so many written about here by us and many many other people like ourselves all over the world, that would take 15 books, 57 videos and 79 websites to go close to scratching the surface of, to try to cover all the things to do with or attempt to explain in its entirety...

I think that maybe one small line goes as close as any to describing
" Prepping"
To make some effort to prepare for anything in life that may concern you enough to cause you to get prepared for it, in case that situation ever arises ...

When I started to look at the subject of prepping, I was only 22 years old. Already with a nice chunky history of lets say... not quite going with the main stream flow. I originally way back then looked at prepping to break away from just "the system" that not only had I no faith in, but by my early twenties was beginning to dislike to a point where, again let's just say, got me into a little trouble every now and then (probably more often than that) but hey, who was counting :- )

These days, personally, we don't prep for disaster or collapse or the myriad of reasons that many prep for these days .

We tend to prep for the reasons that I explored in my early years ..
To break away as much as possible from being reliant on a system that has no future, IMO is very imbalanced, unfair and as per my early years , I saw it as being unsustainable.

On that note, our prepping in nearly all, if not totally all, in all of its aspects, is steered towards doing and providing for ourselves where and when ever we can.

By following this line of thought and implementing all we do using this thinking, we seem to cover our arse regarding nearly all other reasons given by so many groups for prepping :- )

If you ever choose to join the vast growing family of Preppers around the entire world..
Prepare for self reliance in as many aspects of your life as you can. Your life will be better , you will feel safer and you will I can tell you for certain feel far more fulfilled with your new life.. :- )

and of course as already mentioned, fair far better if anything around you goes to chit !

to be continued ...

I look forward to seeing what is possible in the way of prepping on a tiny house scale . I already try to prep but have been limited and I look forward to hearing of ways to avoid this limitations.

 Re: Prepping
Ahhh what a challenge it will be to prep when living in a tiny house. I totally think it is possible, but you need to be clever about what sort of stuff you want to store. It will be pretty hard to have 12 months of food stored away, but if you have a good vege garden, that is always a great start. I think that maybe having a covered in, locked up, shed on wheels that you could use for storage could be part of an answer. Or maybe even hiring a storage shed offsite, may also be an idea. hmmmm it will be interesting to see what you come up with :) cheers Kerri
