    What would you like to focus on in 2018? My personal goals: Continue working on fencing in a few acres, but in 2018 put a lot more time and effort into it. Plant some more fruit trees. Maybe add another rifle. In 2017 I added an older marlin 336 lever action in 30-30 Winchester to the...

    If you had $300 to start prepping with, and assuming you have firearms/self defense taken care of already. What would you spend it on?

    So what did you learn in the past year? I learned a lot about chickens - difference in the various breeds, how much room they need, chicken coop design, chicken yard size and nutrition requirements,, only to name a few. Got some general information on goats - my wife and I are not ready to get...

    Why do people get into prepping? Why do people decide to get into survivalism? I think it boils down to “Hope for the best but prepare for the worst”. The question that begs to be answered is “what is the the worst?”. What is the worst case situation that we should prepare for? For some...

    How did you get into Prepping? I have been in contact with someone that is curious about that and so I did a write-up on how I started and where I am today. Share your story....I think people would be interested. Here it is..... I am male, age 47, married with one child (a boy, 21). I am a...

    I have been watching and seeing what people are talking about. I really do not believe that 1 in 50 families would survive if SHTF in the next year. Most so called prep groups would not survive. 1 out of every 10 so called survivalist could not survive in the wilderness, mountains, or woods...

    Before I came across this forum, I worried about a couple of things that might happen. Now, thanks to all of you, I am checking earthquake frequency, reading up on Fukushima articles, watching sunspots, etc. The boogieman is everywhere! Don't worry, though. I'm not obsessing or panicking...

    Greeting All, Been wandering these boards for a few weeks now, and I want to ask, out of a serious desire to gain knowledge, why do you prep? I've seen one episode of a prepper program, one fellow was prepping for a magnetic shift in the poles, one woman was prepping for run away inflation...

    Im just wondering how many of you have noticed more people around you talking about prepping? It has been a lot around me lately. I believe it mostly has to do with doomsday bunkers/preppers. I mean in a way its glad for me to see people finally starting to wake up and realize that everything...

    A few day ago I was talking to a neighbor. We are not next door to each other but in the same small development. After speaking to him it occured to me that he was a prepper/survivalist type. He said something so specific that it lead me back to this forum. I am 100% shure of this! My...

    I am fairly new to this board and know I will get flamed but I feel like BOB's or GOB's are highly overated and a little dramatic. I live in the Midwest and work about 1 1/2 hrs from home. My gas tank never gets below 1/2 and I am ALWAYS armed. The nearest major city is 150 miles away. At...

    I was just reading the "doom guide", and it said if some disaster did happen and martial law was instituted, food and water would be collected and distributed. would hiding in packing boxes in a cool dry place be best?
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Do you have a family member that lives in a perfect world? Well, I Do, my wife jumps my ass every time that i come home with extra food or supplies. She just can't get it in her head that setting aside important survival items makes sense. She thinks i'm one of those people on T.V. That hoards...

    Now that I am using all my disposable income, who am I kidding, more than that, to prep, I no longer have money (or desire) to purchase all the useless junk I use to covet, such as movie collectibles. What did you use to buy before prepping?
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I tried to search but could not find much... Myself and a buddy want to start a preppers / survivalist group, I have to say my only expierenced is from reading "lights Out". We want to have around 20 adult members+kids to share and pool knowledge. Anyway. I have to assume there are some...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just some ramblings of what I expect to see in 2012 Cost of food With the drought in Texas from 2011, and people stockpiling food for the end of the world in 2012, I suspect we might see food shortages. If there are shortages, we can expect the price of food to go up. Some weather forecasters...
