Yeah, this generation is kind of brainwashed into thinking everything comes from a box or can and that making things ourselves is silly. lol

Jeremiah 29:11,13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. ...and you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

I think of prepping (and being a prepper) along the lines of being a 'Boy Scout' -
aka always ready.

It's about being be self-reliant and ready/able to take care of myself and my loved ones.
It's realizing the skills we've lost in this generation - canning, food preservation, hunting or scrounging for food, repair skills, etc - and working to regain those for myself.

Preppers are even more necessary now that this country chose to head to socialism. As long as we can keep our supplies, but someday the administration may come knocking on our doors to take our stuff to "redistribute the wealth" to all of those people who have done NOTHING, as usual.

Like I said, you do not have to be Chicken Little to be a prepper but you do have to prepare yourself and your family to survive any incident. A prepper is one who is prepared to not just survive an incident - be it natural or man made or even government created - but to live as close to normal afterwards. I encourage everyone to share suggestions and techniques here in a non judgemental manner. Thank you and again - welcome!
