Venezuelan Prepper Looks Back: “Things I Would Have Done Differently
Having overcome a few personal incidents that rocked the boat these last few weeks, I want to write now about one of the most important experiences regarding the psychological aspect of prepping. Looking back as a Venezuelan prepper, there are things I would have done differently if I had fully known what was coming our way. Enduring what we have gone through, even after having a proper approach to prepping, sort of conventional in a sense: gensets, water tanks, storage capacity, dry supplies for a few months, and other stuff, all of these are into the field of the conventional and regular prepping.

Off-road vehicles perhaps, or at least a vehicle in good enough shape to take a beating up to the retreat, radios, some food production and particular, merchandisable skills. (I lack a little bit in the field of manual arts, like pottery or painting, but maybe it is just me…I can change a tire in record time, which is an art by itself especially in a Venezuela where the roads are plagued with thugs.) This is stuff that any person concerned about self-reliance should have covered. But next, we have to try to imagine what could be on the horizon that we have never considered. I am not talking about prepping for every conceivable threat. That is just not possible nor practical.

What I want, is that you imagine what your action course would be just in case your worst scenario, one so bad you could not even imagine, takes place. For those who have not read my former articles, I used to have a regular life, pretty good according to our standards in Venezuela. A good and well-paying job, medical care insurance, school at 10 minutes on foot for the kiddo. A sushi restaurant next to a pizza delivery at 5 minutes on foot, and so on. What else could you ask for? It was all great until the apocalypse started. How to identify this threshold is:

Prepping for Empty Grocery Store Shelves

Prepping for Empty Grocery Store Shelves 30 Day Food Bucket Are you prepared for empty grocery store shelves? Hunger in America? Stock up on food and supplies now while things are readily available. Prepare for the possibility of shortages of food and supplies you count on daily. We never know when an emergency will empty grocery stores, or interruption of the supply chain will keep stores from restocking. In emergencies, people cram into stores, grab water, food and batteries off the shelves; at gas stations, long lines form.

Many real events can leave grocery stores empty: prepping for hurricanes, tornadoes, winter storms, fires, floods, earthquakes, civil unrest makes sense. Most important prepping supplies to stockpile are food, water, first aid, hygiene supplies and more. Stock up on things you use regularly while they are readily available. If you are a prepper, and are prepared, empty grocery store shelves are just an inconvenience, not a full blown disaster. Are preppers paranoid, or prepared? stockpile the most important prepping supplies.

10 Prepping Tips Everyone Should Know

Unless you’re a psychic, you never know when s*** is going to hit the fan. If and when a crisis occurs, the last thing you want is to be unprepared. But prepping isn’t always easy. With so much contradicting information out there, it can be difficult to separate the good information from the bad. With that said, I want to show you 10 awesome prepping tips that actually work. By following this advice, you’ll be ready for any survival situation.
#10: Build a Bug Out Bag

A bug out bag is basically an emergency kit that will provide you with the ability to survive for a minimum of 72 hours after a crisis. They should contain all of the essentials required for survival: food, water, basic first aid equipment, etc. While you can buy a bug out bag that’s already comes with items, it’s much better to build one in my opinion. Not only is it cheaper, but it also allows you to know exactly what’s in your bug out bag.
#9: Stock Up on Non-Perishable Food Items

There’s no sense in stocking up on foods that have a short lifespan. Why? Because you never know how long grocery store shelves will remain empty. Non-perishable food items include:
