Prepsteading: Practical homesteading with preparedness in mind.
There’s a new term for you – Prepsteading. The folks over at Pioneer Settler.com have put together a short article on what Prepsteading is all about. Here’s a snippet:
“After you read about the art and science of prepsteading, and learn why it is so important that more people do it, you will want to call yourself a prepsteader too.
At the outset, the meaning is just like the word looks and sounds—part prepper, and part homesteader. But the true core of the word for me came from my own real-life roots. Growing up in a tiny mountain hamlet in a rural state, I spent my childhood surrounded by prepsteaders.”
And they go on to explain why they embrace this style of prepping.
“As much as I do value the idea of preparedness, some tenets of modern day prepping are not quite the perfect fit. Many in the prepper community embrace aggressive collections of weaponry and extravagant underground bunkers. That is perfect for some, but not for me. My idea of prepping is more along in the lines of developing skills for sustenance and survival in the event that food or goods should become more scarce. Although we do maintain the necessities for self-protection, the focus at my house is more on hand tools and canning jars and would stoves than it is on guns and surveillance.
Some preppers stockpile manufactured food that is never intended to be eaten outside of a true emergency. I like the idea of storing food, but I prefer to eat and replenish it every year, like my ancestors did.”
Why not head on over and read what they have to say. Sounds interesting!
