The Marine Corps motto is Semper Fidelis, or Always Faithful, in my unit we jokingly used the term Semper Gumby – after the rubber cartoon character – meaning Always Flexible.
I must have been a very impressionable young Marine, as I took it to heart and the core of my preparedness plan is to develop a flexible mind that allows me to observe, orientate, decide, and then act in whatever manner best solves the problem and to keep from being bound into a concrete dogma.
In today’s show I speak extemporaneously about why I think preppers can learn from all the other prepper types – the bug out, bug in, into the woods with a knife, homestead, frugal, diy, or cash flush gearheads. Every type has its strengths, and every type has it’s weaknesses – I make the case that rather than pick a side, we should pick a little of each.
I also discuss the concept of stress inoculation, of balance, and of having to work toward our goals – and that every choice and step we make in one direction limits us in others, so we have be wise preppers.
