Surviving TEOTWAWKI (aka the end of the world as we know it) is where a lot of preppers start. It makes sense: something terrifying wakes people up. Therefore, they start preparing for that world-ending SHTF event.

But the reality is this: These new preppers are focusing on the least likely thing to happen to them. It is far more probable they will encounter a personal tragedy or SHTF scenario than a TEOTWAWKI event.

Episode 23 is about evaluating the likelihood of what you are preparing for and getting the most benefit from your preps. Doing so allows you to prepare in a way that buttresses your life both for the likely and gets you 80% of the way there for the unlikely.
