hi as of writing this i am somewhere from 15-18 years old. i bounce between idaho and california. ive been interested in prepping since i was 7 and started getting more into it around 10. i am currently rebuilding my ruck and load-bearing equipment. im also writing a book of general/specific information for me, but i figured i can publish it out to the public since it has useful information. i am also making a discord server for preppers n such because i havent found any, so might as well make one. ill post more about my equipment, what i do, and my plans later on. hopefully, my questions can be answered here. i will also be posting reviews and projects too. for example, my CFP90 on and alice pack frame and my 96 grand Cherokee build. i also am a military collector and love military history almost as much as i love offroading

Some people don't know about morepairparts.com/ wild card city casino login and wasting their time by not earning real money in gambling. i also am a military collector and love military history almost as much as i love offroading

Welcome.
I will give my usual advice.

EDUCATE YOURSELF!

All the toys in the world dont mean squat if you dont know how to use them, and moreover how to think.

Learn EVERYTHING!
Not just 'survival" items.

EVERYTHING!

Cooking, cobbling (shoe repair) leatherwork, machining, tailoring, animal husbandry, science, engineering, medicine, whatever you can get ahold of.
Expand your mind...

im currently renewing my first aid/cpr license and hopefully gonna do the advanced classes, im learning to weld and sew, cooking is still a little new but i understand how to do it if that makes sense, engineering and science are some of my interests already. i am deciding whether i want to be a welder for the army or a combat medic. im leaning more towards welder. i just sit in the backyard all day working on things. self-taught mechanic. actually, most my skills are self-taught and then i look up further skills from there in tie to what ive already done. i love learning new things, especially when it ties to my interests already

My father in one of his better moments told me that I should always have at least one primary skill (profession), a back up and then multiple hobbies to ensure that I cover all my basis.

When i was growing up (without rehashing a lot of BS) I didn't have much exposure to the world, so when i was old enough and just enough money to cause trouble, I started to explore things.
I was also fortunate enough to have been in many industries to learn things.
From survey to manual labor. Manufacturing to Architecture.
Photography to leatherwork, cooking, driving, Armed Security automotive machining, etc.
True a jack of all trades may not be a master of any, but I also watched, and noted the many things that interconnect.
It has proven invaluable when I am faced with something as simple as replacing a dead gas range to fixing a car to mending clothing and feedin myself.
