One stop shop to read the best of the blog posts originally written for the Hope for the Best - Prepare for the Worst Facebook page.
We may be batshit crazy, but we don't wear tinfoil hats. Unlike other "preppers" we don't plan for the conspiracy theory du jour, we just know that every eight to ten years throughout our lives, something incredibly unexpected happens. Sometimes it's a global issue, sometimes it's deeply personal. But whatever it is, the only way to get through is to depend on YOU.
We don't actually think of ourselves as preppers anymore. That lifestyle is filled with paranoia and fear. We've turned paranoia into an opportunity to educate and evangelize. We've virtually eliminated fear in our lives through sustainability and food independence. We stopped being hoarders and became producers.
At some point, it stopped being about surviving and became all about thriving. Not just for ourselves, but for our community.
These posts are the ones that I keep going back to remind myself why we do what we do that seems crazy to other people but has become second nature to us.
We can't change the world, but we can change ourselves...and when we change ourselves we change the world immediately around us.
Enjoy reading our journey!
