Re: Is it better to go it alone or in a group?

I don't think that a group of preppers necessarily has to form itself with all the order of a military unit. It may be more appropriate or advantageous to create a loose association of friends. Still...some chain of command will form. It just depends on the situation at hand. Well for me I am ex-mi...

Re: How much food is enough to have stocked away?

We buy the MRE's (meal, ready to eat) by the case of 12 each. They are made by a few different companies. Some are military and others commercially made to military standards. They do last 7 to 10 years. I have seen meals with some ruined items, but not often. These are usually the more delicate it...

Re: Is it better to go it alone or in a group?

Agree that groups are the way to go and, as has been mentioned, small manageable groups would be the best. Looking at no more than 10 tops. With that amount of people you should get a good spread of skills and ability to help keep things ticking over all day every day. The important thing to do, I ...

Re: Why should you prep.

I think I class myself as a semi-prepper. In the last few years, I have realised a lot (remember I am in the UK): the government cares nothing for the public and due to this we have a lot more different 'dangers' to you guys in the US. Whereas you have earthquakes and tornados, we have the risk of ...

Re: Why should you prep.

Well, I was a Boy Scout and our motto was "always be prepared". As an adult with a family, I got a real eye opener a few years ago as to what I really need to be prepared for. I live In dutchess county, NY. A few years back we got hit with a bad snow storm that knocked power out in the area for a l...

How much food is enough to have stocked away?

How much is enough when it comes to food? Hear is what I think. You need at least 1 years worth of food ready for what ever is coming. From canned goods to rice and pasta if stored right they will not go bad canned goods are only good for so long. Honey is another thing that does not go bad. You nee...

As time goes on smaller groups will join bigger groups in order to survive.

Re: Why should you prep.

Why did I become a prepper? Well I have been a prepper before being a prepper was cool. For me I started prepping when it was called being prepared. And I started when I was a 13 years old and a Boy Scout. The Boy Scout motto Is BE Prepared !! But as things in the country have gone down Hill in the...

Re: Why should you prep.

I did a video on that subject having plenty of books that you can learn from or use as a reference is very important. knowledge is power but having the books so others can learn from is worth so much more. Wow! I really love this comment. I think I must have a small library at this point, but there...
