What follows is an entry into the current ModernSurvivalOnline Guest Post Writing Contest.
I have never written anything like this before, but I feel passionate enough to write about prepping. Before I became what people are calling a “prepper” I put most of my extra cash into remodeling my home and into my garden. My gardening skills will prove very handy if the time comes-EOTW, but most of my extra cash now goes for prepping. Bills get paid but after that…. I still garden and do small repairs around the house(can’t have the place falling in around me) and I am now a beekeeper, also handy when- well you know. After that it’s food, water, and ammo.
I come from the Detroit area and now live in South Carolina. Being from Michigan I have always had guns for hunting and protection. The changing times convinced me to get my CWP again and I feel safer for doing so. The gun craze has made it hard to find and stock ammo, but it seems to be letting up some.
