2012: 4 Mistakes That Preppers Make

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Offgrid Survival

When the SHTF most preppers believe that they will be ready and able to do everything it takes to survive. But are you making some very common mistakes that could jeopardize your chances to survive??

Becoming to Reliant on Gear

A lot of people that I meet in the prepping or survival community tend to focus too much time and effort on collecting gear. While having things like a Bug Out Bags, Survival Knives, Emergency Preps and Survival Gear make life a lot easier in a survival situation, all of these things will eventually fail. The one thing that you will always have with you, that you’ll always be able to count on – is your knowledge.

Unlike gear that can break, get lost or fail at the wrong moment; knowledge is something that you will always have with you. The key to survival really is knowledge; you can have the best gear in the world, but without knowledge that gear is completely useless.

Thinking that you know it all

I have seen this one pop up a lot recently. I have talked to a growing number of preppers who falsely believe they’ll be ok because in their words “they know more than their neighbors and the rest of America…” They believe that everyone else is going to be so unprepared, that they will automatically be in a better place by default.

While I have no doubt that 99% of the world is grossly unprepared to survive even a small scale disaster, this in no way should make you relax. In fact, I think it’s a good reason to prepare even more. Should a massive SHTF situation go down, those that are unprepared will likely become out of control savages. You are going to need every bit of training and knowledge you can acquire to make it through.
