At some point, the world is going to end. There are several possible ways it could happen, and each way has a timeline associated with it. We checked out some theories and narrowed down the time frames for these. While a world-ending event is inevitable, it is not why preppers truly prepare. The SHTF situation that is most likely to affect you is not the end of the world. It will be a financial hardship, a personal injury, or a natural disaster. The chances that you will encounter a crisis in your life is almost guaranteed.
In the article below, we dissect the “When” from WSHTF and try to pinpoint a time SHTF could occur. You’ll have to determine for yourself whether we are close or not. Only time will only tell just how close we are to your next life crisis. Just remember… whatever happens, it is getting closer by the second.
