You are bound to hear about â€œpreppingâ€. Depending upon the source of the info, â€œpreppersâ€ are nut jobs, militia-types, snake-eaters, etc. Or they are rich loners who can survive the apocalypse, fight off alien invaders from their underground bunkers, and can afford $20,000 sniper rifles.
The reality is that anyone can become a competent prepper with just a little bit of preparation. The first step is to understand the â€œPrepper Law of Threesâ€; you can survive:
- 3 minutes without air
- 3 hours without shelter
- 3 days without water
- 3 weeks without food
The key to maximizing your chances (and minimize your discomfort) is to stay calm, work through the Prepper Law of Threes, take advantage of everything you already have, and donâ€™t do stupid stuff. (Iâ€™ll define some of the â€œstupid human tricksâ€ that can lead to an early death.) You donâ€™t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars, move to the middle of nowhere, or stockpile a ton of MREs (though all three can have their uses).
