Prepping is exactly as it sounds, preparing… Preppers prepare for all sorts of things. The most important thing to prepare for as a prepper is a natural or man-made disaster.
Just as the video above illustrates, I’m not a believer in big government conspiracies, but there are so many disasters that overlap in prepping that if you prepare for a handful, you will cover most of the rest.
After 9/11/2001 the country really started taking this stuff seriously. I strongly recommend you take a look at ready.gov, it has tons of info on family prepping for disasters even if you don’t want to become a prepper. Everyone should have a 3 day kit for whatever kind of disasters are common for your area, ie. earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, and wildfires.
