Well, We’re all preparing here for whatever it is we are preparing for.  Hurricane, economic collapse, earthquake, civil unrest, whatever it is.  As a single person, prepping has been a pretty simple concept to undertake.  Know what my needs are and act on them.  Simple.  I want a months worth of food, I buy it.  […]
