So what is a Survivalist. According to Dictionary.com:
survivalism. survivalist. a person who makes preparations to survive a widespread catastrophe, as an atomic war or anarchy, especially by storing food and weapons in a safe place.
In this day and age with everything that we see happening in our world I think that anyone who doesn’t prepare for some type of disaster is a complete and utter moron!
If you take a look at the different scenarios that I discuss in the Survival Scenarios section you can see that there are things from both Nature and Man that could imperil the safety of us and our families.
Just a little planning could make the difference between surviving and having to rely on others or worse.
Not too long ago here in Colorado, a small town out on the plains had their water supply contaminated. You read about this every once in a while at any number of different towns.
As I watched the news reports and saw the long lines at the water supply stations set up by the State I wondered how many of those people would start to store emergency water supplies in the future.
And how may people weren’t in that line but safely at home because they had emergency supplies set up.
A Survivalist would be prepared and have water stored and the means to clean more water if they ran out.
This instance above is an example of how many people rely on others or the Government when a disaster no matter what size happens.
What would have happened if the Government had been unable to respond. Most probably the weak would have suffered as the strong took what they wanted.
And what would have happened if there had been a tornado instead that wreaked havoc on the water, power, and food lines?
Being a Survivalist means that you are prepared as possible both with things stored and the knowledge on how to survive disasters!
