Practical Prepping Blog

Preparations for a very uncertain future. . .

This Is Why We Prep.

This is not fear mongering.  This is not sensationalism.  This is what could be coming to a neighborhood near you sooner than you think.  The photo of the policeman standing on a rock-strewn street was taken in the aftermath of a riot in Greece yesterday.  The riot was over severe austerity measures imposed by the teetering Greek government in a futile attempt to bar the barn door long after the horses have escaped.  This scene will doubtless be replayed all during the summer, first in the PIIGS countries (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain) like some economy-based remake of the movie,  Groundhog Day, then will spread to other EU countries, most notably Britain, whose economic situation is only slightly less dire than that of Greece, as the house of economic cards comes tumbling down worldwide.

Believing that this cannot happen here in America is folly and dangerous fantasy.  Dangerous for you and your family.  For during such times it is highly likely that food deliveries, electrical power, and even the delivery of clean drinking water may be interrupted or cut off completely.  Preparing for this and other eventualities is what this blog is all about.  While we may pray that we never have to utilize our preps during a countrywide crisis such as that facing Greece today, we prepare nonetheless on the off-chance that it will.  Prepping does not make you a ‘doomer’ or somehow reveal a secret desire on your part that you actually want the S to HTF.  Quite the contrary, it shows you as someone who is willing to prepare for and face the future – whatever it may hold – good or bad.  Prepping is what a responsible person does for the ones he loves.  Do it with pride.  Do it with some haste.

Be Safe.  Be Prepared.
