6 Survival Tips You’re NOT Following That’ll Make You Have to Deal With Consequences

We all love to enjoy this world that we live in and stock up on more and more food for when SHTF. We also like looking at survival gear and plan for that possible future when all hell breaks loose.

But the truth of the matter is that a lot of preppers will not be ready for the harsh realities they'll have to face when it comes time to rely on accumulated stockpiled food and survival gear.

You may have gathered survival supplies and maybe even skills, but putting them into practice is a whole different matter.

We look at the web every day to solve our problems and then quickly forget all about them after the work gets done. And face it — you have a pile of survival gear that you've never used, hoping you'll figure it out when the time comes. You also may even hate the taste of survival food but expect you'll be more than ready to eat it when the grid goes down.

You don't want to be that prepper that's not truly ready when SHTF. After the break, learn some necessary survival tips that'll help you alleviate the dangers when a collapse DOES takes place.

    Crap! Lmao you people think if shtf you will be able to hang on to your food surplus? Or your solar power? You are dreaming. SHTF…. fucking think about this. People are crazy as$#%&!@* So most likely its going to be a full on war zone. Therefore your best survival skill is learning to survive with nothing. Go into the woods and feel the earth. Create a trap because I doubt you can hunt. Live off the land. Trapping in itself is a hell of a skill. So many of you so called survivalist wouldn’t last a day without all your fancy gear. Try to learn to only survive with a pocket knife and after that no tools. Nature provides! Peace and Good luck.

    Covered except for solar. But still power conscious…we bought a small generator last year thinking it would make life a little easier when camping off grid for several days. We fired it up once to test it. Never used it again. I believe there’s a #7 though. Stacking them up. A week (or even a couple days) camping off grid at least a day’s hike from civilization let’s you use your knowledge, gear, cook meals with the bug out kit, find out if your BOB really has what you need, and generally embrace the suck, but in a pleasurable way.

    One needs to learn to survive of the land, because there are going to be bigger and badder people that will just take your$#%&!@*

    I was kinda disappointed till I got to number 5. I beleive it kinda covers the previous 4 and is by far one of the biggest parts of actual survival in my opinion. Not a bad list for mindless click-bait lol

    I worked for a portable solar power company Goal Zero for many years multiple small sources of power are better than one large one if one brakes down you have others systems for backup and to use for barter and don’t forget wind generators they produce power day and night I am and Army Veteran and in my 60s embrace the suck is words right out of the military don’t Just prepare with expensive equipment prepare your body and your mind remember the saying the Strong Survive that means PHYSICAL and MENTAL strength that’s #1 so put that damn phone down get your$#%&!@*away from the computer and start working out prepare yourself most people I see today are out of shape and not prepared learn hand-to-hand self defense techniques for combat not competition and if you need to take time to think about what you’re going to do it’s too late it should be automatic just natural instinct but remember the words of a very great man and friend of mine the best martial artist is the one who avoids the fight in the first place
