    Hello everyone. My husband and I are just starting out with prepping. So much information out there – some contradict what seems to be good advice – so we get lost in the confusion. We are older so finding quality information is key to our sanity. lol My hope is to get some good information so we can move forward. So happy to have found this site. Thank you for the work you put into it. ~ BFrank

    probably the best thing a newbie can do is recognize there’s a whole lot of BS and misinformation and misdirection involved in the prepping world ….

    especially >>>> dealing with the blogs and their authors

    their “research” many times is just paragraph re-arranging of other blog author’s erroneous prepping publishing >>>> it’s a round & a round circle …

    what’s involved is dangerous – can get you & yours seriously injured, ill and even dead >>>>> possibly even worse is a prepping mistake will give you confidence that you have adequately prepped supplies – only to find out in an emergency you have zip ….



    BFrank, Jennifer and others,

    Don’t be afraid to ask questions. There are a lot of people here who are years into prepping and can give you sound experience and reasoning for their advice.

    Even though some of the information on this forum is years old, it still applies. Choose a topic that interests you and go read up on it.

    If you hit the “recent activity” button, you’ll see what we’re all talking about, too. Feel free to join in. As we get to know you, when you ask questions, people will respond to you.

    Hi. I am a new member.



    Hello everyone! Guess I’ll start off in here. I was actually a member of the old forums years ago. I quit showing up – I lived with my parents and couldn’t do much at all without getting the side eye – but kept reading off and on. The basics never really left the back of my head…well now I’m married (my husband is on board as long as I don’t get “too crazy”); we live in our own house on the edge of the suburbs with a teeny tiny bit of land and are actively working towards moving a little further out for more land and privacy; we also have a toddler boy who is, in the end, the reason I came back. Thinking about his future is rather disconcerting and I’m hoping to give him the greatest possible base I can no matter what happens.



    Welcome back! You’ve got a great motivation for prepping there…your little one.
