So I'm relatively new to prepping, and when I first started, I thought it was about laying up stuff: food, fuel, gear. During the first year it was all about buying. The longer I hang out on this forum, the more I think prepping is about acquiring skills, about learning. How to grow food, how to shoot straight, how to organize your group or neighbors. What is prepping to you? obviously it's both, but what do you put more emphasis on, buying more stuff, or learning more skills? If your answer is learning, what's your short list of "must learn now" skills? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
