I had a fan ask this question:
WHAT DO I DO WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES IT WILL GET THAT BAD? THEY WONT PREP BUT I DO AND I’M ALONE….
-Cxxxxxx, it starts with baby steps. Most people resist the idea of “Prepping”. They think it’s all zombies and nukes. In reality, we are more likely to encounter smaller scale incidents. Everything from forest fires to hurricanes, job loss to earthquake. Many things happen in life that can be emergencies to us. Getting reluctant family to jump onboard to prepare for a global collapse is a lot harder to do than getting them to help prepare for (insert likely regional disaster). The more you prepare for the small scale disasters the better off you will be. Being able to draw from those supplies and skills when life throws bumps in the road will help to encourage the naysayers to help, or at least get out of the way.
I’ve been prepping, in one way or another, since Boy Scouts. In those years we’ve evacuated several times for fires, had earthquakes, been unemployed, etc…
-My back and prepping:
Here is one way that may help to get family members “on board”…
Back in December of ’09 I blew a disc out in my neck. It was pushing on my spinal cord and rendered my left arm nearly useless. Between that, my surgery, physical therapy, getting rearended at 40mph, back to physical therapy with vertigo… I was out of work for a year. Our storage food saved us. It’s not all about aliens, zombies, and nuclear bombs. Sometimes we prepare for life to happen.
