What are you prepping for?

People prep for different reasons. Some are concerned about being stranded during an ice storm or blizzard, halting travel for a few days to a few weeks. Others who live in hurricane prone areas are more worried about the effects of those disastrous storms. Some are thinking more long-term and looking at a potential economic collapse, pandemic, or all out world war.

I’ve always felt that if someone is prepared for the absolute worst case scenario, then they surely are prepared for any lesser emergency.

But, I’m curious so humor me here. What are YOU prepping for?

Jim Cobb has been a student of survivalism and emergency preparedness for almost thirty years. As a young child, he drove his parents nuts with stockpiling supplies in the basement every time he heard there was a tornado watch in his area. Of course, being a child, those supplies consisted of his teddy bear, a few blankets and pillows, and random canned goods he grabbed from the kitchen cabinets. Later, he was the first (and likely only) child in his fifth grade class to have bought his very own copy of Life After Doomsday by Bruce Clayton. Today, he is a freelance writer whose work has been published in national magazines such as Boy’s Life and Complete Survivalist Magazine. He is a voracious reader with a keen interest in all stories with post-apocalyptic settings. He maintains the Library at the End of the World blog and is also the Content Director for SurvivalWeekly.com. He currently resides in a fortified bunker in the upper Midwest, accompanied by his lovely wife and their three adolescent Weapons of Mass Destruction. Jim's first book, Prepper's Home Defense, was published late 2012 and his second book, tentatively titled The Prepper's Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness, will be out in mid-2013, both coming from Ulysses Press.
