Prime your prep
When it comes to prepping, all items are critical - but some more so than others.
One tiny missing item can have huge consequences. For example, you could have all the fuel in the world but if there’s no way to ignite it, it’s completely useless. That’s why March is Prep Month Part, Purchased is Prepared - ensuring you have all the critical items you need.
The right tool for the right job
Don’t just haphazardly gather items, prepare for an event like you are going on an expedition. Meticulously plan, compile your checklists, re check those lists then gather your gear, check your gear, double check it and then triple check it for good measure.
That’s what prepping is all about. After all there is no such thing as being kinda prepped.
