Ask a bunch of preppers how to prepare and you’re likely to get everything thing from “buy some rice” to “get a gun” to “move to a cave and raise chickens”.
It’s overwhelming at times.
Where do I actually start?
This is a good book for a new or new-ish prepper feeling overwhelmed by all the doomsday news or the alarmist “the government is out to get you, we’re all gonna die” YouTube channels that seem intent on scare tactics rather than information.
The author, Ted Riley, doesn’t come in to preach at you with his morals or politics.
Much like his last book about SHTF situations, he knows there’s enough of “the sky is falling” crowd out there screaming into the ether.
He lays out information in easily consumed (no pun intended) ways so that you can organize these ideas yourself so you can choose what is right for you.
Simplicity is a prepper trait that is underrated.
As a sophomore continuing to build my information banks & actual assets when it comes to prepping, I have amassed a lot in a little span of time.
Having a better idea of what I actually needed at the beginning of this new life change would have been welcome.
Ted actually gives reasons why preppers choose the things they choose and reminds us that just because someone buys 50 cases of salmon, that’s great for them but do you actually like salmon?
Find those calories and nutrients elsewhere if you’re going to hate what you eat.
Any situation that calls for you to dip into your prepper pantry is going to be stressful enough without abhorring the fact that you bought 10 pounds of quinoa you’ll never eat!
The info is basic enough to understand and retain but also invites and entices you to go beyond the pages and seek out skills, ideas and avenues that could enhance your prepping choices.
It also reminded me that just because I have 2500 calories a day in my pantry, if it was all in ramen or sugar, I’m not doing myself or my family any good in that regard.
In fact, I’m making a bad situation worse.
Having a diverse pantry will not only keep you healthy, it’ll keep you sane.
If you’re a new, beginning or intermediate prepper that wants a good broad amount of info without being made to feel like you have no chance of accomplishing any of this, check out this book.
For me, Prepping isn’t about hoping for or worrying about the End of Days.
It’s just about being comfortable in my home while it feels like it is.
If recent events & this pandemic has confirmed one thing for me, it’s that I don’t want to be one of those desperate people in the crowd begging for a bottle of water while some doofus tries his hand at 3 pointers chucking paper towels at me from the back of a 5 ton truck.
With its information organized and easy to find, this book is yet another addition to my knowledge & outlook.
Check out this book, it’s a great add to your preppers library.
