Why we’re not Doomsday Preppers

I imagine most people have at least heard of the show Doomsday Preppers, and I will be the first to admit that I do enjoy it, but I am not one of them. I watch the show for entertainment and sometimes pick up and idea or two, but our motivations are different.  The Doomsday folks seem to constantly be living in fear, sorry, to me that’s not living. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not knocking them; I don’t have a crystal ball and for all I know they could be right. Natural and man made disasters can and do happen all the time. See What type of events or events are you preparing for? But I am a prepper for the same reason I have car insurance; just in case. I do not fear a car accident every time I get in to my car, but I do have insurance. Prepping is like having insurance or saving for retirement – it’s just common sense. Being well prepared should give you peace of mind – we can’t prevent world events, we can only prepare for the most likely events.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Happy prepping!
