    So what’s the difference between a prepper with thousands of pounds worth of equipment and supplies and a prepper with 20 years of survival skill and zero supplies?

  1. Interesting take. I like the very practical perspective, and how you point out that some people are prepping while not even realizing it.

    It’s like, if you ask an “old timer” about prepping, they would be confused. However, if you asked them how they did things “back then,” you would find they were prepping.

    Good article. Keep it up 🙂
