Here goes...well, look, I'm nobody. I grew up really poor, like dirt poor, like live on squirrels poor, and it gave me an experience that most people only read about...survival.
I didn't read a survival guide or go on a military training or join the Scouts, I just... lived it.
As I got older and graduated college I became interested in prepping as I felt the world was headed towards a collapse, but my friends looked down on me...called me crazy, so I let it go and focused on my career.
Big mistake...2020 came. The whole world was falling apart, and I realized how important people were that knew prepping.
All of a sudden all the farmers, preppers, mountain men, hillbillies, and even pot-smoking garden hippies were suddenly looked to for advice...because in a crisis, THOSE people were self sufficient, they knew how to survive.
If it wasn't for the government coming in to 'save' everyone, those self-sufficient types would be the one's people go to for help.
