One of the big questions in the prepping / survivalist community is when did you start prepping? My great grandparents lived on a small farm, my dad was raised on this same small farm, my mom was raised in a rural area and had chickens and a garden.
I was exposed to gardening, farming and raising your own food from the time I was born.
Prepping covers such a wide range of topics. Ask ten people what is means to be a prepper or survivalist, and you will probably get ten different answers. Ask a hundred people the same question, and you will probably get a hundred different answers.
Some preppers stockpile canned food, some stockpile #10 cans of freeze dried food, some stockpile superpails of dried food.
