Welcome, New Preppers!

Hello, my friend and welcome back! With everything that is going on in the world today, many people who never took the idea of prepping seriously, have realized the importance of it. If you’re new to prepping, then let me be the first to welcome you. Today, I want to introduce you to what it means to be a Prepper and just how you can get started. Grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.

There are literally thousands of websites on the internet devoted to Prepping. Finding your way through them, looking for usable information can be a daunting task. Let me also say that not all of them are not reliable. Look for information that makes sense to you. I have a page called “Link Exchange” which has a pretty good list of reputable sites to help you get started.

A sight that I do highly recommend that you check often is the “Preppers Website” it’s run by a fellow named Todd. I have found his site to be one of the best sources of usable information on the web. I like to think that I have a pretty good archive of post, and I would hope you would drop by here regularly for coffee and a short visit.

The first thing you need to understand about Prepping is that it is not a hobby. It is a way of life and a mental attitude. If you’re not willing to take it seriously, then you will most likely only waste your time and money. You must have the attitude that when the next disaster strikes, you will be ready and not be a victim. You must understand that it’s up to you to prepare and acquire the supplies and knowledge you will need to do this.

You don’t need to be rich to be a Prepper, in fact, most of us are just everyday people like you. We have educated ourselves by reading and doing research on the web and then putting it into practical use. Did you know that many items you will need for prepping can be found at the Dollar store? Ten or twenty dollars a payday is all you will need to get started.

You start small and build up to what you will need when the time comes. Here is a golden rule of Prepping “Two is one and one is none”. What does that mean? It means that you need at least two of everything you have in your supplies. If one fails or goes bad, then you will still have a backup.

Here is a good piece of advice, don’t go telling everyone that you have supplies stored up. If you do, they will be knocking on your door looking for a handout when disaster strikes and if you don’t give it to them, they will try to take it. Remember, it’s only yours if you can keep it!

Now let’s talk about firearms for a minute. Every Prepper, need to have a way of defending their supplies. If not they won’t have them for long. If you’re new to firearms, then, by all means, take the time to get training on the safe way to handle and fire them. Check with your local gun shops for more information on this.

Well, my friend, you have taken your first step into the world of prepping and becoming a member of the Prepper brotherhood. You are headed in the right direction, and on your way to surviving your next disaster. Welcome, and if I can help in any way, please just let me know. My email address is bob@americanpreppersonline.com. God bless you and good luck, my friend. Please come back often. Until next time, stay safe, stay strong, and stay prepared. God Bless America!

    Good article, Sarge. Although for the past couple of months, if you tried to order freeze dried foods there is a 2-3 month wait…..glad I prepped a long time ago. For anyone new to firearms I recommend Independent Indoor Shooters in Meridian (near Boise). They hold a lot of classes and have indoor ranges that include 3 @ 100yds. Good luck all!
