Hello my name is Jeff and I am a prepper. If that didn’t turn you off or scare you away you are probably either interested in prepping or are a prepper yourself. Now your saying “Gee, just what we need, another prepping blog!”. I know, I know. I can’t believe I am doing this but please believe me when I swear that my intentions are good. I find myself in a position where I have seen so many subjects that I feel aren’t fully developed or underexplored that I am compelled to get my two cents worth in.
I am not a gung ho,” live in a bomb shelter because the zombie apocalypse is near” kind of prepper. I am a prepper simply because I don’t want to ever see my family, friends, coworkers and even some strangers have to go without the basics they need to sustain their lives. I also believe in order to be successful at prepping, being truly “prepared”, that you have to adopt it as a lifestyle. It doesn’t have to consume your life but you have to have an ever-present place for prepping in your heart and mind, hence “Everyday”.
The prepping experience has been a journey for my wife and I. Usually enjoyable and not close to being finished. We have been made fun of by some of the very people we want to provide for, but they are gradually coming over to our side and that makes it worthwhile. Our concerns, that have served as a catalyst for our efforts, include our children and their families, relatives who believe the government will always be there too provide for us in times of need and my wife working over 60 miles from home. In fact, we now have three daughters who work or go to school over 50 miles from home.
Now, it is my pleasure to welcome you to join us on our journey as we take on the challenge of attempting to engage beginners through experts. It is my desire to offer things that will benefit all. I will tell you up front that I don’t know everything about prepping but I will add what I know to the works of others in order to provide you with a more complete product. All I ask of you is to take what I provide, improve upon it where you can and pass it on to others.
Remember, there is no prize for being the first to cross the finish line at the end of a disaster. The only way to really win is if we all cross that line together!
