In April of 2018 the SurvivalistBoards YouTube channel was renamed to RuralPrepper. Some of the viewers were asking why the name changed. So let’s take a few minutes and talk about it.
I have been into survivalism since at least the 1990s. Part of the way I was raised – hunting fishing,gardening… in the 1970s was the foundation for my survivalist plans. Granny had her milk cow, chickens, turkeys, fig tree, pear trees, etc. Dad would take my brother and I fishing and hunting as soon as we were old enough to go.
Dad also usually had some kind of garden planted. I remember one year we had enough purple hull peas to fill the bed of a pick up truck. I kid you not, the bed of a short wheel base chevy truck was full of purple hull peas.
My grandpa usually had a small backyard garden planted. He grew all kinds of stuff from cantaloupes to tomatoes.
Those examples influenced my prepping plans. When I decided to get into prepping as a young man in the 1990s, I had a solid foundation to start with.
