Preppers: When Prepping Was Cool

Do you have your food stores ready , how about your bug out bag handy, are you thinking of ordering that shipping container for the perfect underground bunker, I hear you can get them cheap.

Hell I was prepping when prepping was cool. Now its just a TV show with everyone talking about the “End of the World”.

Back in 2008 I had no idea what prepping was all about , but I quickly became a “Prepper” as fears of political and economic collapse ran rapid, the keyword being “Fear” , lots of fear.

It was a wake up call for many of us pure and simple. We were suddenly and abruptly woken from our slumber and we started to look at things a bit more clearly.

We all began to realize how vulnerable and completely not in control we really are. I think that’s why it has become so popular , people feel like they are gaining a sense of control by prepping, so they can survive !

I have to laugh, especially at myself . Don’t get me wrong, I think it is absolutely a good idea to be prepared for natural disasters, and perhaps a short term economic upheaval , and I really appreciated my generator and stores of food when I was without power for 5 days due to a freak snow storm.

But the Idea that we can prep for the “End of The World , is not only ludicrous , its an oxymoron. I mean come on people , think about it, if the world is ending , whats the point.

In the new television show “Doomsday Preppers” , the commentators constantly reinforce the idea that the “Preppers” are preparing for the end of the world , perhaps this is to make them sound crazy.

Although many of the people on the show talk about , economic collapse as their primary concern for prepping , not the end of the world , so perhaps a bit of ” Television Programming ” going on as usual.

Watching the show brought more than a few laughs , clearly there are people with way too much time and money on their hands, but hey to each his own, if it’s their highest joy, so be it.

I would only suggest that if it’s about living in fear then it kind of defeats the purpose. Nothing wrong with being prepared, as we move deeper into the Apocalypse, we will likely see some bumps along the road, some growing pains, and the more prepared you are on all levels , the more enjoyable the journey.

Remember there is no destination , there is no “End” to anything. Just enjoy the Show , follow your joy!
