How did you start your Prepper Plan?

How did you start your Prepper Plan?
I may or may not be a type A, list making, OCD , control freak...

So - I was wondering, how did you start your prepping?

I took a very methodical approach. I wrote down what I thought the most likely threats were, SHTF type scenarios. Then under those, I listed what types of things I would need and in what quantities. Then I cross referenced each list with the other two - and circled the things that showed up on all three (for example: Water, Epi Pen, MRE). And that's how I began preparing bug out bags.

I've since built upon those lists, added to my stocks - always prioritizing what was most important, with what I could afford.

Anyone else a list maker?Blush

RE: How did you start your Prepper Plan?
Being a avid outdoors men raised outdoors by my grandad and his two brothers since age 5 I've always prepped to some degree and serving 7 of my 12yrs in South America and Africa reinforced what I learned as a kid and teenager (being ready) prepping become natural to me.

I get some odd looks from Lisa when I tell her "please order this for me" her famous response "your spending this kind of money on something you hope to never use" yappers

We who are ready will survive for we are mentally equipped to do so

RE: How did you start your Prepper Plan?
I started by a lot of reading -- then slowly adding an extra bag or two of rice and beans - then started printing out all sorts of stuff for notebooks about the same time I was gifted with a pair of rabbits - went from those to a gift of 3 chickens that sent me off to buy a few more! And suddenly I had that garden started in a small space that within a season got the whole family involved in expanding chickens, rabbits and gardens all within a few months! Now it is a second nature to us -- the rest of family didn't even realize they were helping me prep until I started buying equipment - when I encouraged their fishing and hunting equipment shopping, they caught on! My notebooks and lists were what helped me to stay organized. This winter we remodeled to make the pantry - you can see photos at my website - and now it is easy for everyone to want to see the shelves full! Matter of fact today we are getting a couple new chickens!

RE: How did you start your Prepper Plan?
When the tsunami hit Japan and the Fukushima reactor was damaged, I decided the first purchases I needed to make were a firearm, a machete, a Vietnam jungle hammock (found out I'm too heavy for that), and two 25 lb bags of beans (got black beans and green lentils) and a 25 lb bag of short-grain brown rice. That was the event that got me back into prepping. I guess I saw it as the first of the big 2012 events.
