This article is a very interesting look at a theme that we all face as preppers. I will never forget the early days of prepping when I thought the nation would fall at any moment. It is very much a panic. when you learn about the fragility of our society your mind spirals into a deep panic and you realize its time for action! This panic often leads you to make purchases than are less than prudent and you may even wind up with a 30 in 1 survival tool that is not even worth the box it was delivered in.
Its always good to read the words of a prepper who has been in the game for a while and has been through that panic. This same panic can crop up when things get ugly around us. Always remember, you are no good to anyone if you are stressed out and exhausted.
