Common Mistakes Nearly Every Prepper Will Make (If They Admit It!)

prepper mistakes

After years of prepping, I’ve been reflecting on what I would do differently if I were starting to prep right now. I’ll bet some of my mistakes are pretty common among all preppers and survival-minded people. These are some of the mistakes I made. Do any of these sound familiar?

1)  I read too much Survival Blog when I should have watched more how-to videos on YouTube.

Survival Blog gave me a big kick in the pants for getting started in preparedness, but it also sucked my wife and I into near-panic attacks and bouts of despair. One day I came home from work to find her at my desk, still in pajamas, hypnotically reading article after article on Survival Blog. Doom and gloom articles had her frozen with fear, and although that blog and others like it motivated us, they also didn’t encourage us to learn more skills. It was all about stocking up and being afraid.

YouTube is filled with massive amounts of great information but in smaller doses and often accompanied by a friendly face and voice. I would have learned more about waxing cheese, bushcraft skills, primitive water filters, and stocking up on veterinary antibiotics, all of which would have been more practical than reading tips for buying property safe from rifle fire.

James Rawles is one of my prepper heroes, but for a beginner, YouTube videos would have been more helpful and encouraging. Just one of many prepper mistakes I made early on.

2) I should have bought less crap and more high-quality products.

Preparedness is best done in this order: awareness, education, and then action. In our initial panic, we steered clear of education and jumped right into the action phase. That’s my style, I guess. Early on I bought a lot of cheap “survival” products that were recently sent to a thrift store as a donation. My wife was quite the couponer and because she had a stack of “awesome” coupons, she bought bottles and bottles of salad dressing we never used. After a year or two, they turned all sorts of weird colors and she threw them out. I didn’t argue with her.

I’ve since figured out that buying the best quality we can afford is smart, even if we have to wait until we have the money. A high-quality pair of walking shoes could make the difference between life and death someday. We want tools, supplies, and even food that is meant to last for the long haul, not bargain basement specials that are cheaply produced and quickly fall apart.

3) I wish I had spent less money early on

I imagine that most preppers start off in a panic mode and begin amassing enormous quantities of stuff, just for the sake of having stuff. However, I have learned that doing a fair amount of research first is the smartest way to go.

We didn’t know much about food storage conditions, for example, when we first began buying extra food and soon found ourselves with packets and boxes of potato flakes infested with tiny black bugs.

4) We should have networked with others sooner

It’s always hard feeling as though you’re the, “only one”. The, “only one,” with a certain health condition or the, “only one,” going through a personal crisis. Feeling as though you’re the only prepper in town is just as hard. You feel isolated, a little paranoid, and yet there’s a deep need to talk with others who are on the same wavelength, but everyone you know isn’t a prepper for any number of reasons.

I felt very alone, year after year. A couple of fledgling prepper MeetUp groups began around that same time, but I didn’t take advantage of their meetings, and I should have. Joining in on forum discussions is a good option but it can’t take the place of face to face conversations. It would have helped me identify more quickly what my priorities should have been, and it would have been comforting to know that I wasn’t the, “only one.” Preppers University live classes offer one of the best ways to network with others who have the same survival perspective and get an education at the same time.

5) I should have kept my mouth shut around family and close friends

To this day, no one in my family or my husband’s family is on board with preparedness. In short, I could have saved myself a lot of awkward explanations and times of feeling defensive if I would have stayed quiet.

Eventually, preppers “self-identify” when they’re around people they know and trust. They are suddenly familiar with names like Gerald Celente and Alex Jones. City-dwellers develop an odd interest in raising chickens and turning their backyard pools into tilapia ponds. It’s not hard to figure out who’s prepping if you pay attention, and keep your mouth shut until you’re pretty darn sure they’re on the same page as you.

6) And, we should have focused on financial survival first instead of third, or fourth

In the beginning I felt a mad rush of urgency to buy, to stock up, to preserve, to read. I wish I had felt that same urgency when it came to money. I should have doubled down on paying off debt, saving money, learning about and buying precious metals. We did these things eventually, but it would have made life easier if we had taken financial survival a little more seriously from the get-go.

As an experienced prepper, I now realize the importance of financial prepping. In fact, you could almost say that it sets the stage for all other prepping steps but it’s overlooked by most prepper writers and websites, and that’s a shame. From finding ways to earn extra money to creative ways for cutting back on expenses, it’s possible for just about anyone to come up with enough extra dollars each month to afford a good first aid kit, freeze-dried food, a Sun Oven, and many other helpful products. I’m also a big fan of having extra cash on hand for emergencies.

Looking back, what prepper mistakes did you make?

Fight Breakdown: Big Guy Sucker Punches Smaller Guy and Pays For It

1- Sometimes people get offended/ violent at things you would not expect. There are cultural components to it but heck, people are crazy. Alcohol or drugs compound this. 2- Note the pre punch facial grooming. 3- Note the feet moving prior to the punch. If a person goes from standing squared up to you how we normally talk to dropping a foot back get frickin ready. 4- The bigger guy was real dumb for not following up his first punch. 5- The smaller (but not small and also apparently pretty athletic)guy had some knowledge of wrestling the way he changed levels, clenched, took the guys back then dropped him on the ground. 6- Staying standing and striking was smart. In a non recreational fight you do not want to be on the ground. Don’t get me wrong I train BJJ and stuff but a black belt won’t help if Cletus has a friend who puts a size 11 work boot through your face. 7- Fight hard until the other guy is no longer a threat. Even ugly punches count.

Amanda Gang is weary of consumerism – appalled at the way her own parents are such avid shoppers.

She just wants out. so she is hoping to wander across the USA on a bicycle. She lives in Manhattan.

In this video, Amanda tells us she is looking for passionate and like minded people that feel her need to go living off the grid. She would like land, where she can just be and a community which will let her do what she likes to do and that is to get back to mother nature. This appeals to her and her friends.

She would like to attach herself to what her heart tells her where to be within a community that she relates with as gardening and building a home. She thought the art community was this but the four white walls and zero eye contact makes her think what her mind and heart tells her — that an alternative of living in contact with the earth is the answer.

Amanda is starting from scratch and she is surrounded by a cycle of destruction where her body yearns for nature. She has to learn from trial and error.

Some may find The Patriot Nurse’s words controversial. I find them factual. The division in this country and the threats against it are growing. Although speech such as this and many things I say may be called “divisive” I know I have converted people and educated others. I believe in the Constitution and the America that the Founders created.

For record I do not believe that all Muslims are terrorist – not even close.



This video was created BEFORE the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California. Very prophetic.

Gathering Information: Simple method for downloading YouTube Video’s


As I build my preparedness library I am finding video’s are becoming a larger part than I originally intended. If a picture is worth a thousand words…well….a video is worth even more.  I am using multiple tablets and Kindle Fire’s to store my electronic library including the video’s.

You name it it can be found on video. This includes movies for entertainment, how to dress a deer, how to take care of a broken arm, instructions on building fences, etc.

The biggest challenge to putting together this video library is actually downloading the video’s so they can be viewed offline. Well – there is actually a very simple method.

Here it is:

Step #1 – Find the video you wish to download.


Step #2 – Find the url for the video at the top of the screen – see below. It starts with http://www.youtube .

maxresdefault (2)


Step #3 – add a ss between www. and the youtube – then click enter



Step #4 – at this point another website opens. Now click the green “Download” button and the video will download automatically.

Notice the box next to the green Download button. You can change the video format if you wish.




That’s it!! Super simple and it works great.

Take care – Rourke
