Hello my friend and welcome back! A lesson I learned, early on in prepping, is that some of the best Preppers out there are actually handicapped. We can all learn a few things from them and that is the subject of today’s post. Grab a cup of coffee, my friend and have a seat while we visit.
So, what do you think of when you hear the word Prepping? (Besides how great Sarge is. 😁) Is it storing up supplies or ammunition? Is it living in a country community and working with others of like mind? The truth be told there is really not much a handicapped Prepper can’t do.
OK, so maybe they can’t dig a ditch with a shovel. But can bet they will have a tractor they can use to do it with. What else? Yes, they can fight in a scrimmage line with a rifle. How? By using a four-wheeler, they can go just about anywhere you can.
Because they are handicapped, they are used to finding different ways to do things. Their ability to improvise is amazing, and they can find ways to do things most of us would have never thought of. They are truly incredible people because they have not let obstacles keep them from doing what they want or need to do.
They tend to see the good side of everything and in a post-SHTF world that will be a great person to have a round. They see everything as a challenge and they go at it with the motivation that there is nothing that can’t be overcome.
Every time I come in contact with a handicapped Prepper, and see what they have done and how they have prepared, I am in awe. If we all would face prepping, as they do, we would all be much better prepared than we are.
My wife has a cousin who lost both of his legs as an adult. It hasn’t stopped him one bit. He lives by himself and cooks and cleans and even vacuums the floor without any help at all. You would think that not having legs, there would be a lot of things he couldn’t do, but you would be wrong.
He climbs a ladder faster than anyone I have ever seen and he is an excellent marksman with a rifle. He doesn’t see himself as being handicapped, but rather just someone who has to do things a little different. He is simply fearless in his approach to life.
If you don’t have one in your Prepper Group then you are missing out. These people are true assets to any group so don’t cut them short. They can sometimes go where others can’t because of their size and upper body strength.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that just because Prepper is handicapped, don’t rule them out, they have a lot to offer and can be a real benefit to you and your group when it comes to surviving. I know this is a short one, but it’s been on my mind a lot lately. It was something I just felt I needed to do.
Until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
