New member from Scunthorpe, UK!

Post by jimmythejoker123 » Wed Sep 02, 2020 10:45 am

Hello everyone!

I'm a new prepper in his late 30s trying to get his head around everything. It's a little overwhelming at first, but the prospect of being self-reliant in the absence of the fragile structures keeping society afloat is an attractive one. So I want to know all there is about it!

Good to meet you all, and I look forward to learning lots from you :)

Welcome, Jimmy! Hope you find lots here that's useful. I think you've hit the nail on the head when you mention fragile structures - there were a lot of dedicated boots-on-the-ground people keeping things ticking along this year, the structures were ... not good.

Welcome Jimmy,
Lots of useful info here and a friendly and approachable membership.
Suggest you get a big blank page and envisage a few scenarios you are going to prep for... and a few you are not going to. Then form your own plan of attack before diving in ( It's easy to dive in and end up wasting money )
Prepping can be zero net cost or better when it's a way of life.
Get any significant other on board, ASAP, because it gets harder with time.
