As a side note: The title of this episode is 5 lessons from 15-Years. I can’t say when I really got serious about prep. The show started in 2010, but I think this all started in 2003. By started I mean where this started to be something I thought about and engaged in daily.

Comment on this episode and let me know if you’d like a part two. I came up with 15 in total, but we’re just going to do 5 today. Again, comment to let me know if you liked this episode and want the other 10 things.

Prepper Lessons Covered:

  1. You can’t become a Swiss Army knife; you’ll just wear yourself out
  2. Answers need context and nuance
  3. Planning and Prepping For TEOTWAWKI is a recipe for disaster and burnout
  4. You can’t force your partner into prep
  5. Everything needs immediate ROI; in the begining

    Excellent episode. I can’t think of a single reason why you wouldn’t release the rest. And anymore you can dream up.

      Thanks for the good words, Mal. Ha! I’m sure I can come up with more than the 15 already written down. Maybe extras will get made into Summer Short episodes.
