Over the past several weeks I have been contacted by several people who are retired or close too retirement age with preparedness questions. At 42 years old and I can only respond the best that I can with the information provided.
Many of these people are in tough situations. They are often on a very limited budget. They often have minimal or no firearms training and little confidence to learn. Bugging out is often not an option health issues may provide limitations as well as just a lack of ability to move supplies. Most of my contacts are older women who have no husband.
This is tough.
I am thinking about the multitude of situations these people are in and what the best responses should be. I am not discounting older people and their abilities by any means. It’s just that many older people are now discovering “preparedness”. I think many suggestions would be the same regardless of age – such as putting together a 72 hour kit and starting to build a food and water inventory. It is interesting that many of these older folks have DEEP and SERIOUS concerns about the economy. From their years of living they have an educated belief that the S is about to HTF.
I am going to put some thought into how I can best do my part in helping older preppers that are confused on what to do.
If anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, comments – please leave them here or send me an email.
Thanks – Rourke
