When preppers consider SHTF scenarios, we tend to imagine that it will happen really fast. The reality, though, might be way different.
What if as a prepper, you see the writing on the wall, but everyone else doesn’t? Would you take that time to make a final run to the store to fill in any holes in your preps?
Many will say the best scenario is to already be stocked up and ready to bug-in. And that would be the best-case scenario. But many preppers aren’t completely stocked! So let’s dream…or let’s run through some scenarios.
You might find that you have a better than average chance of making that final run. What other things would you do?
Let Others Know
How many and who would you communicate the immediate threat to? Would you tell neighbors or would you tell family in the area? What about people who live further away? Do you have a plan to let others know and do you have the comms capabilities?
Would you leave? If you saw the threat coming would you leave your home and head out for the bugout location?
It’s a very interesting thought. You see you dont know what the aftermath might look like but you know that something is coming. We can only speculate.
Maybe you would take the other angle on this thing. Maybe you would decide to dig in and gather the community to stay home. It’s not going to be easy to leave your home and it might be better to stay close.
The importance of all this is to understand that you need a plan. It needs to be a solid plan. Dont assume you will know what to do when the world starts to crumble. Plan for it! Write it down and be ready.
