New Prepper SA
« on: April 20, 2017, 07:08:13 pm »

Hi all.

New to prepping and look forward to receiving/sharing knowledge with you all. I have been sitting on the fence for years,  but have finally decided it is time to get ready.

Starting with my first bug out bag, and will go from there. Would love to hear the hot tips for beginners, and I'm sure I've come to the right place.

Stay safe.

Welcome to the forums, plenty of info to read up on.

As for the BoB, pack it and take off for 24hrs, see how you go, you'll work out what you've forgotten / need to get, what adjustments the bag might need to make it more comfortable etc.

Thanks,
I've been doing a lot of research lately, as I want to make sure that everything that I do/purchase in this endeavour is without waste.

Early goals I see myself doing as a novice Prepper are:
Establishing a decent BoB.
Aquiring a cat A firearms licence.
Purchase a survival rifle (looking at 22LR to put food on the table). Maybe a 12g shotgun later.
Longer term, ownership of some rural land, where I can try my hand at some sustainable living/long term prepping.

Haven't been this keen on doing something since my last fishing trip!

Welcome and I hope the drive lasts.
Basic ideas are good.
Got a lifestraw for that bob?
Cheap and liteweight!

Loose ends make my arse itch and I have just clipped my finger nails. So the itch flows to my trigger finger.

I suggest to start with things which will be or maybe very helpful and good to have right now. eg have you got a very good first aid kit in your car? Have you had some basic first aid training? (if not it may be a good idea to check yourself into a class).

Though you wish to bug out one day.  You could do things like plant some edible plants in your garden now and try your hand at growing some things and getting some real experience in there with that now.  (growing ones own food isnt that easy if a person has no experience at all, in a SHTF it isnt the time to be trying to learn how well you can grow things or not. I think many preppers will be in for a big shock).

Look out for food specials and start storing a little extra.
