The worst time to learn how to parachute is after you jumped out of the plane. Like most things in life skills take time to develop well enough to be effective. While Beginner’s luck can sometimes save you that first time you are called to do something outside your skill set you can’t count on that working all the time. As an American we love stuff and to often then not we want to buy stuff so many prepper focus on buying stuff but not learning skills that will allow them to forego that stuff. To be effective you need to start turning your attention to learning the skills you need to survive on your own or in a small group. Eventually your supplies will run out, car breakdown or find yourself no longer having something you greatly depend on. Can you survive without? Are their skills that can help you?
