Recently had a response on an FB post that read something like this…..

“If you cannot light a fire and keep it going in a blizzard you are not prepared. If you do not train in the most extreme conditions then you are not prepared.”

I totally disagree and this is what I would call “snobbish” at a minimum. This goes right in line with the thinking if you cannot afford a Daniel Defense firearm then you have junk and might as well just bury your head in the sand. Same if you cannot process your own deer from field to plate – well, you’re just going to end up a statistic in ANY scenario.


We all have limitations. We all have perspectives for our preparations. I would never tell someone that has built up a solid one month supply of food they are simply unprepared and might as well pack it in. “Great job!”. would be my response.
