Asteroids. Earthquakes. 12/2012. Peak Oil. Climate change. Economic collapse. War. Pestilence. Famine.
Odds are that if you're reading this then it's because you, like so many others, see that not far down the line we are all headed for some serious strife. Perhaps you've been at this a while. You might be reading this via a satellite internet connection from your 100 acre retreat in the middle of nowhere. Most of us are not there yet, nor are we likely to be by the time things get ugly.
If you're new to Prepping, or Survivalism, or whatever you choose to call it I have this advice first and foremost. Don't give up in the face of what seems like an immense challenge. It's said that to sleep well at night you either need to be ignorant or prepared. Well you can't go back to ignorance so you need to get prepared!
The purpose of this blog is to help Australian preppers by providing links and guidance to Australian resources for preparedness as well as providing comentary and advice appropriate to Australia rather than the U.S. of A where most internet preparedness resources originate. That is not to say that you shouldn't read sites like Survivalblog daily. I've read James Rawles' "How To Survive The End Of The World As We Know It" a half dozen times. American or not, most systems and procedures are universal. Yet you only have to read an article about which "battle rifle" is best to recognise that we have our own challenges here that need a local perspective.
So this blog is not designed to overlap or infringe upon fantastic sites like SHTFPlan or Survivalblog. It's designed to provide Australian Preppers with Australian solutions. In time I'll fashion a standalone website but for now a blog is the quickest way to get the ball rolling.
So without further adieu, I give you the Ausprepper blog.
Let's see where it goes from here...
