Episode 103 – How to start preparing and avoid “beginning prepper stress.”


This podcast is one year old today! Thank you!

Whether you are a new prepper or experienced prepper, I think it’s safe to say that it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the task of getting ready for what may come. That’s why I’m convinced some people don’t do it. They want to, but it’s too overwhelming or they don’t know where to start. They also don’t want people to make fun of them so they don’t even try. Can you relate? Tune into this show for some tips on how to take it one step at a time. This show is inspired by an excellent blog post on The Survival Blog.

  1. No I have not considered that! Great suggestion! I don’t know much about sign language, but I will mention this on the next podcast as a reminder for people to consider using, especially in a SHTF aftermath. Thanks for the comment!

    My husband and I have been fans of your handgun show pod cast for the past month and this was our first time we listend to one of your survivla shows and found it as intersting as your other pod cast show. We loved the fact that your brought up survive in place being more important then the whole bug out survival situations.

    I was wondering if you had ever contimplated the art of sign language as part of the survival scene? We use it with in our own family to communicate with our children at the park and in other situations where we might want to ask each other a question, or make a comment with out raising everyone elses attention.

    Great show, and we look forward to listening to more of your pod casts on both survival and handguns.

  3. Thanks. Organizing has always been one of my weak points, so doing this podcast also got me thinking about how to get better at it. Being organized and actually compartmentalizing your belongings does cut down prepping stress. Thanks for the comment mbarnatl.

    Good episode Bob! This one made me sit and think about people beginning prepping. Physical fitness is not talked about much nor is one of the most important thing to do… organize. To start out it should be the first thing you do for prepping. Only a couple survival of books cover this, if you start out by organizing your home, you will cut a lot of stress out in the beginning. Orginzing will help you gain more time, less stress, greater productivity, save money, space to live, work and breathe. Once you organize, you have a baseline where you are at and where to start.
