Here are some basic examples you can do to start emergency prepping. (We're not going to write you a book here.) Also check out these two posts Why should I be Prepared? and Prepping & bugging In/Out (click either to go that post)
Save a little money from your paycheck!
You don't need to save up TONS of money to start prepping, you can save a dollar a day five, ten, or even twenty dollars a week from your paycheck and use it to start prepping!
Do your research!
Look around online, read books, or ask anyone at SHTF Preppers for help of course.
Stockpile shelf stable foods and water, canned goods, ammo, medical and supplies for hygiene, etc. (Scroll down on the home page for a list of recommend stuff to stockpile ).
Get your fitness gain on!
The better shape you're in, the better chance you have surviving a SHTF situation.........If you have a bug out bag, go for a walk or jog with it on so you get use to the weight and going long distances with it.
Just like we said at the top, Research! Buy books, start a small survival/prepping library. Because when the lights go out, the internet won't be here to answer your questions.
Everyone here at SHTF Preppers wishes you all a very safe and happy Thanksgiving!
A Get Home Bag is a bag you should always keep in your vehicle when leaving the house, it can be described as a "Scaled down Bug Out Bag". With the necessary gear and tools to get you home in the event of any catastrophe, whether it be personal, or global; and everything in-between.
Now, your Get Home Bag should be oriented in a way that suits the area you would have to take to get home, rural, sub-urban, urban, desert, etc. You must have the necessary gear to get home.
But you also must be able to walk with that bag for any undetermined amount of time, for in the event of a CME(Coronal Mass Ejection) or EMP(Elctro-Magnetic Pulse) most vehicles will no longer run. To each his own on what goes in their Get Home Bag, just remember this. You need the gear, and you have to be able to walk with it. If you can't move with your Get Home Bag on, it won't do you any good.
Thanks for reading
