The Start Of The New UK Prepping Blog
The UK Preppers Guide website has been running for over two years now and I thought it was about time to add a regular UK Prepping Blog.
This is something I have been planning to do for a while now, but never had the time.
I also deliberately turned off comments to the main UK Preppers Guide website - you are able to freely comment here on this prepping blog
From previous experience there are just too many spammers out there and I wanted real people and real preppers to join in. Not someone selling perfume or trying to promote their website that had nothing to do with prepping.
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Steve Hart and I've been a prepper for as long as I can remember.
In fact, I was prepping way back in ‘the old days’ before the word ‘prepper’ was even heard of.
Mind you, everyone was a prepper then…
By that I mean everyone knew how to make ends meet by stocking up and by having the basic skills like actually being able to cook a basic meal from scratch.
They knew about real food and how to make it last. They never wasted any food, and what wasn't eaten would be recycled and made into a meal for the next day.
Nowadays people just click a few buttons on their iPhone and zap – within 20 minutes there’s a box a ready made food delivered to their door.
But then sometimes they will get really daring and actually buy a box of food that they can “cook” themselves – buy “cook”, I mean open the packet and shove in the microwave and nuke it for two minutes.
Giving them a lovely meal containing just about every ‘E’ number and preservative known to man.
Sad really. We have lost the basic skill of even being able to feed ourselves without resorting to technology.
Over many years I have been quietly beavering away prepping.
For what? Well I don't really know to be honest.
But one thing I do know is that we have a dam site better chance of surviving if we are prepared. I have precious little faith in the government being able to provide shelter, food and a safe environment for me and my family if the SHTF.
So that’s why I prep. Not to be trendy (which apparently it is now), but because I want to be the one calling the shots. The one who can provide for myself and my family.
Over the years I have purposely learnt the essential bushcraft skills to help survival in a full on disaster. I can say with confidence that I have a pretty fair chance of making it through the rough times.
The chances of that happening are quite remote though aren't they?
Or are they?
Hopefully I will never see a world wide catastrophe during my lifetime, and that’s a good thing. But along the way prepping has been great fun to say the least. I have met some fantastic people involved with the prepping and bushcraft community.
And some nutters…..!
Please feel free to follow me on this blog and please comment if you think I’m right or wrong. Or maybe just to say hello.
Happy Prepping Folks..
