Life just seems to be so hectic anymore for everyone. I mean there seems to always be something going on and something to do. And a bunch of stuff that always needs to be done. So what about your “prepper to-do list”? Where does that come into play?
Well, that is a tough one to be sure. If a major disaster hit tomorrow or the grid went down tonight would you be ready? I doubt anyone would be totally ready. But here is the deal, preparedness is a weird part of life – you don’t need it till you need it, then you really need it.
If I had a chance to choose between fishing with my kids or packing a “go-box”, I would choose fishing with my kids. If I had a choice between a date night with my wife or reloading ammunition I would choose…ahhhhhhh…..well, I would go on a date with my wife 😉 But if I did those things on Wednesday and Friday respectively, then the grid went down on Saturday, where would my time have been better spent?
Yeah, even with prepping you have to make judgment calls. Hopefully you are making decisions that will bring your family closer together and cementing those bonds. In my priority system family relationships comes first…always! But here is a thought, you are teaching your kids how to fish (a survival skill). While out at the lake teach them how to build a fire, boil water, and mix a Mountain House freeze dried meal in a pouch. When you and your wife have a date night have a discussion about “Plan A” or alternatives as you are riding to your date.
Bottom line, make the right priority decisions with your time. But I highly encourage you to work at your prepping at least once every week. Keep your progress moving forward, keep accomplishing. If you do, it will pay off big time when the time comes.
