Ok, let’s be honest, when most people hear the word “prepper” they probably imagine a camo covered, gas mask wearing, gun nut, who lives in a backwoods-bunker, deep in Rednecksville… not that there’s anything wrong with that. But unfortunately, this notion has created a stigma around the word “prepping,” and while some choose to go to extremes in preparing for what they collectively call the “SHTF” moment, a growing number of
normal less intense people have chosen to become preppers of a more practical variety. What these practical preppers understand is that prepping doesn’t necessarily have to be a lifestyle, but it should certainly be a consideration for everyone. So don't be alarmed when I tell you there are preppers all around us. Possibly even living in your own home.
Understandably, your level of preparedness is entirely driven by what you are preparing for. So, naturally those preparing for Doomsday have a few more considerations to account for than say, someone who wants to be ready in case a storm knocks out the power for a few days. While both scenarios are admittedly possible, the latter is definitely more probable.
Thinking about all the "what ifs" in life can quickly drive you to that commune of tinfoil hat wearing brethren. But ignoring the very real possibility of experiencing some sort of disaster, be it natural or man-made, could potentially be tragic. At Geo Survival, we want to make it easy for anyone and everyone to be prepared. We want to equip you with the knowledge and tools to survive a natural disaster... or getting lost in the woods... or maybe even that zombie apocalypse.

Now go ahead and put away that tinfoil hat and proudly call yourself a prepper!
