Russia vs Ukraine, NATO, the U.S… A war that would literally be on my doorstep. I thought I was prepared for anything – virtually off-grid, self-sufficient, experienced in bushcraft and outdoor skills… Just like many others who call themselves preppers and survivalists. But we live in the 21st Century, and the world is a much different place to the Dark Ages.
With war looming just 40 miles away from where I live, I’ve had to take a long hard look at how it could potentially effect my family and myself if it really does start – if the ‘false flag’ that America is promising does occur and Russia invades Ukraine. And what I found from my introspection, after a subscriber asked me a very pertinent question, was that I’m only partially ready. There is till one major hurdle to overcome, and it is most probably not what everyone thinks when asked the question: are you prepared for World War 3?”
In this video, I examine the traditional survival measures that preppers use to prepare themselves for future problems and disasters, including everyday carry, bug out bag, grab bag, bug out vehicle, bug out location and others. I also show how my virtually self-sufficient lifestyle is missing a major factor which could make my, and everyone watching’s, life almost ideal. Especially if we are forced to quickly leave our homes and everything we’ve worked so hard to develop.
NATO and American troops and military equipment will soon be passing through my area en route to the borders of Ukraine, in preparation for what the West believes will be a major invasion by Russia, If now is not a good time to rethink my situation, then when is? Time is perhaps running out.
What I have worked out is not just for times of war and other crises, but is essentially the key to living a happy and free lifestyle in the 21st Century.
