Getting Started Prepping

July 12, 2012

Well, you take some wood, heat some water, steam the wood and you bend it. Once you bend it enough it will come full circle and you have a wheel. Ha ha! I don’t want to re-invent the wheel here. There is so much great information already on the internet for your learning and reference.

Let me recommend a couple of places to you.

Here’s a Quick Start guide for Preppers; http://wiki.shtfmovement.com/index.php?title=Quick_Start_Guide

My Friend Chris Ray has some wonderful pages prepared for you. You could long hours here and not see it all. A Great Resource; http://preparedchristian.net/getting-started

Something you must know is the Rule of Threes; http://preparedchristian.net/the-rule-of-threes/

YouTube has a lot of Preppers doing some awesome things. I’ll recommend a few here but have probably a hundred on my subscription list. Check these out;

LowBuck also has good stuff, a lot of insight and down to earth information.
That is his new channel, here’s his older one; http://www.youtube.com/user/LowBuckPrepper
Check it out too.

John here tells you so much about growing your greens; http://www.youtube.com/user/growingyourgreens

This is a great site with some simply good stuff. It’s great seeing young people learning and knowing this stuff; http://www.youtube.com/user/MayeuxMinistries

The Patriot Nurse is very informative and she shares a lot of necessary stuff; http://www.youtube.com/user/ThePatriotNurse

I spend a lot of time here, even though it’s not directly prepping it sorta is, and, well, it’s Dave Cantebury, he’s not going to steer you wrong; http://www.youtube.com/user/wildernessoutfitters

The are so many on YouTube, search around. I’m sure you’ll find someone you can associate with.

I started taking FEMA courses. They have some great training online. The Independent Study Program has some great courses to take and learn a lot. Check them out here; http://training.fema.gov/IS/crslist.asp

Well, I hope this is a starting place for you. There is wealth of information out there. I also recommend you join some Forums but you may want to get some basic knowledge first. Some of the forum folks have been doing this a while and can be brutally honest.

And many more…

Get to know why you want to Prepare, why you need to Prepare and be confident in your direction. Don’t let fear or overwhelm get to you. If it does any at all, it proves your human, but learn ways to compensate and alleviate the fear. That’s part of Prepping too.

Blessings to ya! If I can help, let me know.
