There are a lot of great products on the market for preppers. There are some highly innovative and impressive things that make survival and even just outdoor adventure much better.
What you will find, however, even with all these great innovations you still need to add your 2 cents. There is no one out there who knows what it’s like to be you or what it takes to survive in your shoes.
Some preppers forget about personal planning and personal effects. This is a serious mistake and will translate into a disaster, in most cases.
Your best bet is to learn how to build your kit and take pieces from other kits. It’s not a bad practice to build your own kit and add a smaller kit to it, to add redundancy. For many, this is a practice that makes good sense for everyone.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
