I have not yet addressed this head on in any video yet but here are the personal reasons I prep. I prep to make sure I can feed my family in case of any crisis or SHTF situation. I like to think of us as "suburban survivalists". I plan to bug in at home as long as we can. If we need to, we have contingency plans to bug out ( locally, or to another state or country if needed). While I don't fear a zombie apocalypse, I can see how civil unrest can erupt quickly even in our homeland given the right circumstances. Whether it be solar flares, pandemic, economic collapse, earthquakes, natural disasters, nuclear attack or EMP etc., we never know what might happen or when. I do not want to be chicken little and the sky is falling nor do I want to be Pollyanna (all is well and nothing bad will ever happen). My goal is to be aware, educated on the matters having done my research and to be prepared for the unlikely events that might never happen.
My Personal Reasons for Prepping (these are my drivers):
1. Concern Over Personal Income Loss/Loss of Job (I need 1 years worth of preps)
2. EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) which will quickly cut off supply chains. (I am planning for 2 years worth of preps)
There are a myriad of reasons to prep and I would love to hear from you what started you prepping and why do you prep. What drives you? Please feel free to share 🙂
Here is a great video from FrugalPrepper which inspired this video 🙂 It's great food for thought and certainly got me thinking. Thanks FrugalPrepper for sharing your thoughts in your video 🙂
