Everyone has made good points on the subject. Prepping is my attempt to avoid the deaths of my own family members, hoping everyone lives a normal life span. After shtf the idea of normalcy seems absurd, but that’s what I’m working towards.
Freedom & Selco’s comments about using your time wisely match my perspective. On my last day I won’t be thinking, I wish I had gone to work more weekends away from my loved ones.
