If you’ve ever been in the scouts as a young kid, then I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase ‘Be prepared!”
In essence, a prepper is someone that is prepared. A prepper creates a plan for emergencies by gathering resources such as food and medical supplies.
They’ll even gain skills in case they don’t have access to power and water… or even a grocery store… remember 2020 when all the grocery stores were empty?!?
Basically, what it all boils down to is that a prepper will try to reduce their reliance on others for their survival in a crisis situation!
To that end, I have become a part-time prepper.
Although living in a small 22 foot RV, it’s difficult to have a large stockpile of supplies at the ready, but I do what I can!
When I go to the store, I will purchase an extra can of veggies, or fruit… or those bags of dried beans, peas and lentils…
However, when traveling, I need to be conscience of the weight our truck can haul, so I have begun to rely on freeze-dried foods.
They’re lighter in weight, therefore I have access to more food, and less water weight in canned goods from the store. Want to know where I get my freeze-dried foods? Click here!
I’m also honing my skills so that I can preserve the foods that come from our container garden… and I cook from scratch whenever possible! Would you know how to make your own pasta?!?
I’m always willing to learn a new skill, so that I too can be prepared in a crisis situation… to that end, I am doing what I can as a part-time prepper!
Until next time,
Peace, love and safe travels!
