This is the time of year when our thoughts turn to family, friends and blessings. However, it occurs to us here at Survivopedia that maybe, as preppers, we may be a bit more aware of these gifts than other people are, or maybe we’re just more active about our feelings. We say this because, for many of us, prepping to survive crisis isn’t necessarily all about our personal survival.
Stockpiling, learning what to do in emergencies and studying how to live off the grid aren’t actions that are motivated solely by our personal survival response; they’re often driven by many other factors, too. We tend to be a family-centric, patriotic lot who just wants to do what’s best for those that we care about; that’s why we feel the need to prepare for any eventuality.
So WHY do we preppers do what we do?
