Like many of you I started prepping with a huge sense of urgency and a lot of questions but not much in the way of guidance from anyone I knew and trusted. It is probably my personality for the most part because when I do get interested in something new I will dive right in at the beginning. This usually leads to some mistakes along the way as I go it alone and find out what works and what doesn’t. As a beginning prepper I didn’t really have anyone I could turn to for advice that I knew and relied on my internet research ability for the most part to learn as much as I could.
This worked out OK in some cases and in others it didn’t. If I could have chosen how I would like to learn all about prepping it would have been with someone who had gone through some of the same things I was thinking of. I would have the benefit of a sounding board of someone who had considered some of the same things I was concerned about.
This is part of the reason why I started the Prepper Journal and that is to share information with people who were new to Prepping. The articles we publish aren’t written for Special Forces operators, our focus is regular people who live regular lives who have regular families and regular problems. I strongly encourage anyone who has questions to leave them in the comments below, or better yet post them in our new prepper forum. With your help this site can continue to grow and reach people with the shared goal of getting as many people prepared for those unexpected events in life as possible. The more voices that join in the conversation the better the information will be for everyone.
In addition to that I wanted to write out 10 tips for the beginning prepper to answer some questions I have been asked about how to start prepping.
Hopefully these gave you some ideas if you are just now beginning prepping and are looking for a place to start. If you have other ideas of your own, please add them to the comments below or create a topic in our prepper forum and we can continue the conversation in there. Good luck!
