I pray son gets out of there before it hits but don’t think he can, they have pushed
his leave date to almost a week or two before he is to report to his duty station
in the US in January. I’m scared sh****less, though I’m trying not to let on to him.
He is only 12 miles from the north.

He is also civilian and being replaced by military but they don’t want to let him
leave.

“Prepping” is one person’s definition/vision of prepping and being prepared the same as everyone else’s? So i have friends that think having a BOB with 3 days of stuff (mostly made in China) is being prepared. IMHO that is just prepping to live 3 days longer than a non-Prepper. I have always view prepping (survivalism back in the day), as a life style. As I have gotten older and income/resources have changed we have been able to up our game. As Angie_nrs said – slow and steady wins the race. Is prepping a fad? For some I’m sure it is; person who watches the Walking Dead and buys a machete and the 3 day BOB with junk in it is Definately in this category or else very delusional as to what is needed to survive all the various calamities that could befall us. Then you have the west coast earthquake preppers and the east coast hurricane preppers- okay they can survival 2 weeks longer than the non-Prepper. The way I see it if you aren’t making preps that allow you to renew and re-supply yourself with food, water, heat, etc then your survival time will be limited, not that having a re-supply capability is a guarantee of survival longer but when you run out of water your life is down to a few days. Those who think re-supply will be done via scavenging runs like on the walking dead etc are going to be sorely mistaken. Let’s take the walking dead situation- okay how many resources/calories are they expending to get a can of spam? I love it when they find a warehouse full of food 3 years after the apocalypse, like the people who worked there and there families didn’t know there was food there? Like the neighbors who had to resorts to scavenging/looting on day 3 of the disaster did look there? Come on folks.

Do I slow or speed up prepping based on current events- why yes I do!!! That is just smart!!!
If Kim un fat kid is tossing about ICBMs and setting of nukes and I got an extra $30 in my pocket do I pick up a 50 pound bag of rice and a box of red dried beans yep. If the world situation is “okay” then I save that $30 to look for deals at the flea market or clearance sections at the stores I shop. Just my two cents

I am sure you have noticed by now of how the media and leftist politicians are leading the smear campaign against preppers, homesteaders, and other people that want to be prepared and live a self-sustaining and self-sufficient lifestyle (unless you are a hippie or a Moslem).

According to people like Nancy Pelosi, I am considered a “potential terrorist” because I am a veteran. You can add, white, straight, pro-American, Christian, and conservative. Looks like I fulfill the criteria to be one someone’s watch list. Yet, the only run-ins with the law I’ve had are a couple of speeding tickets,

I don’t know about others but I grew up “prepping”, have done it all my life. We lived in the country,
we always put stuff back to eat, back then it was feast and famine. I continued after growing up was
a way of life to me, always has been. Not my husband so much. Had a lot of years nowhere to have
a garden then in Texas 15 years plus ago I started planting one again. It was so hot and dry there, hard
to do, had to irrigate but still canned.

Have been doing it well over 20 years now, could not as much this year as I had, hope to feel better
next planting season.

They say more people are canning then ever, don’t know if that’s true but sure see lots of canning
supplies in stores now, so they must be selling. Lots of folks my age no longer can or choose not to
so I don’t know.

It’s an art, my DIL says she is interested but its lots of hard work and I’m not sure she will do it, time
will tell. Would love to pass gardening, canning, and sewing on to her. They did it in Russia but her
mom didn’t show her how.

So I don’t call it prepping, just our lifestyle. Same with hubby and all his DIY, just our way of life, we
are fairly self sustaining and could be moreso if we needed to be.

And it could be that a lot of us have prepped for years, and use this forum to give and take away ideas.

As for Husband and I, we moved to the BOL, spent a couple years wresting the shelter out of the woods, put in a good supply of wood for our cheap wood stove, got a garden started, built on extra room for storage, built some new cabinets for more storage, and just took care of making the BOL as work-free as possible, but at the same time, re-thinking some of our first ideas and changing things around for more convenience. I did a lot of prepping via yardsales, because we didn’t have a lot of money at the beginning, due to the building of the house. I recycled candles, bought used goods for pennies on the dollar, recycled yard sale fabric for family cloths, tote bags for tents, and even made items I sold to add more money for preps.

The lifepro tip is to prep with what you have now…and when you get a little money or are in a phase where you can upgrade, then do so.

We initially grew a big garden, gathered canning supplies, and canned what we couldn’t eat fresh. We also bought dry goods in bulk, tools to cook them with, and so on. I bought a lot of off-grid cooking tools at yard sales so I could cook without modern conveniences if necessary. I also practiced making stuff from scratch – bread, especially, but other things I didn’t know how to cook well.

Now, our garden is smaller, due to our traveling summer lifestyle, and rather than can, we started receiving a small monthly pension we forgot about, and we started upgrading some of the stuff we initially bought – a better stove, more freeze dried food, solar lights, and so on.

Prepping is still an everyday part of our lives, but we aren’t as frantic about it now – we have a good supply of what we need food-wise, our BOL is as prepped as we can make it as far as space, storage areas, and convenience, and now, we’re concentrating on the luxuries – checking out solar, working on getting the gennie rigged in a better place than it is now, building cat shelters for our outdoor mousers, considering a carport, and so on.

We just revamped a bathroom with more cabinets, solely to store more preps of the medicinal variety. We had plenty before, but I tossed a lot at the 10-year mark, and am rebuilding the supply again. It’s really nice to have a dedicated space for it.

When you think you’re done prepping, think outside the box – look around and see if you can make things easier, more convenient, or better in some way than they are now.

Agreeing with Mrs. FP, Prepping is something that evolves with your needs.

Once you have your basics then you consider your future plans based on needs and wants. I went to acquiring durable goods about 2 yrs ago. Now I’m looking to plan my activities gearing up for retirement down the road. What will my future needs be and how to plan ?

It’s been awfully quiet, in fact too quiet for me. Can’t help but think something large scale is being planned.

I think knowledge is your biggest asset

There is always something more you may feel you need and I’m sure there are things I can use, but I can say that i’m prepared.

You just have to know how to use the preps you have and replace them if needed.

As far as other people prepping, if they haven’t figured it out by now, well good luck.
With everything going on in this world you need to be prepared.

I gave myself some time to think about this and talked with hubs about it.
Prepping does have an ebb and flow to it, like life. We know folks who have stopped all together, folks who still putter along and those who have advanced on to a homestead lifestyle. I have noticed other terms such as homesteading, self sufficient and independent living to name a few.
Also agree that some folks just stopped talking about it due to OPSEC, ridicule and peer pressure.

As far as APN, we stopped posting and visiting years ago when the politics got so very nasty. Hubs said it had to do with content as well. This site has always had a problem of not being very welcoming to new folks. Old timers saying, oh we’ve talked that to death already go to the archives. Not to mention high jacking of threads – some people treat this like their own personal Facebook page, talking about their health problems on a thread meant for preparing for North Korea. Not that we don’t care, just don’t high jack threads. I’ve been back because I like to interact with other Preppers, get their opinions, learn new things. And hope that I can bring something of value as well.

We live the lifestyle and we have influenced others around us to start their journey of being prepared. People do notice and pay attention. We can’t convert everyone but we are still growing in number I think.

Prepping is still strong, but the terms people use are changing. Emergency preparedness is what most people will say their into now. It’s doesn’t have the stigma of the Doomesday Prepper show stuck to it even though they mean the same thing. What is a Prepper? A person who prepares ahead of time for disasters.

IMHO prepping fluctuates on a regular basis. Prepping won’t stick well by itself. To me if you make it a lifestyle and live your life, but do things regularly(much like folks in the 1800’s did) and it takes on a different look and feel. It also gets you uch more ready for what may come. But regardless what happens some folks that prep will not make it, Some that didn’t will. about all you can do is try and stack the odds in you favor and hope for the best.

In a way I will agree the mass media has driven a few to prep but there are a few of us that have been at it for years and are in good shape if things go down hill . There is a lot of trouble in the world today and that is the main reason I will keep adding to our preps . I talk more here than other places and now I don’t talk to others people that much anymore .I know of other locals that prep but we don’t talk that much only when we see each other in town , feed store , or local gas station .
Some are fly by night or just as a trend but the few that stay the coarse are still on coarse and understand what could happen at anytime . Money gets tight and that slows down prepping , sickness ,accidents , or just things happen and they all effect prepping . Like myself I did not plant a big garden this year due to health reasons but I still added items as I could . I did not can things but I added can goods veggies , fish , meats .
On a side note with all the spying that is being done some just want to remain in the shadows .

I really don’t know what others are doing and I don’t worry too much about them. They’re gonna do what they’re gonna do no matter what I think anyways. I myself have had periods of prepping fatigue. During the summer I typically don’t give it a whole lotta thought or attention. Then in the fall I usually ramp it up. For me, it’s kinda like dollar cost averaging. I spend a bit here and there but don’t usually dump a bunch of money all at once…..slow and steady wins the race and helps me to not get too overwhelmed. That said, I do have quite a trip planned for tomorrow to add to my preps. I also have projects lined up for fall, that would have been too hot to do in the summer.

Even when I slack I still take some comfort in the fact that I have accomplished some things. I will never be 100% ready for everything but I know I’m way ahead of where I was just a few years ago…..and likely ahead of most of my neighbors, but who knows?

I would say that prepping came to a screeching halt or at least a sharp decline during the Clinton administration. It was during the Reagan administration that prepping was at an all time high what with the threat of the cold war and all but after the USSR was disbanded prepping became less popular and then when Clinton took office and the country became very liberal prepping hit an all time low. I would say it was not until 9/11 that prepping really made a resurgence. As of now, with the threat of North Korea, I would say prepping is making a comeback and it might in time equal or even bypass prepping during the Reagan administration.

As of now, with the threat of North Korea, I would say prepping is making a comeback and it might in time equal or even bypass prepping during the Reagan administration.

I would say that prepping came to a screeching halt or at least a sharp decline during the Clinton administration.
