I am writing this article to inform other average Americans of how I began prepping, in hopes that my suggestions will be helpful for those who are just beginning. I began prepping after watching numerous shows on the National Geographic channel in connection with current news channels. Recognizing that America is vulnerable in several aspects (i.e. our power grid, internal terrorists, and weather events), I began to visualize how unprepared my family and I were in the event of a national emergency.
Now you may be saying to yourself “in the event of an emergency, our government will take care of us.” However, in reality, ask yourself if this has been put to the test; in other words, has there has been a national crisis in which Americans HAVE actually experienced the government doing a good job of taking care of the people in a major event? For example, most Americans probably have experienced a power outage for at least one day, and most Americans probably can attest that they had enough food, water, finances, antibiotics, and entertainment to last throughout that day. What if it had been for three days?
