Prepping is fun!

Prepping is serious, but it can also be a lot of fun.

There's no goal to reach; you're never finished prepping. It's a way to live and a way to see the world. Not as a dangerous scary place, but as an opportunity to do something that can make a positive difference for your future-- even if the "S" never hits the fan.

Not only is it fun to think of a possible need and find a way to prep for it, but it's also fun to be able to use your preps in non-emergencies.

Several times over the years my preps have smoothed out a minor crisis. Either the water got turned off or there was a power outage. I look at these events as an opportunity to test my preparedness-- and it is honestly kind of fun. These practice runs can help you see where your preps need some work, which is better than discovering the "holes" once it's too late to do anything about them.

The skills you'll learn can also come in handy in mundane situations.

Once, many years ago, before I carried an EDC (every day carry) kit with me at all times, my extended family was having a cookout down at a state park, and we realized no one had any matches. I said I could get a fire going anyway, and set to work making a bow/drill set. (I am embarrassed that I didn't think of using any of the car cigarette lighters that were undoubtedly present). No one had confidence I could do it and my brother-in-law drove back to town for matches. But I had a fire going before he returned. That was fun.

Prepping is serious. It protects you and your family from unnecessary hardships. But it is also fun if you let it be. That's just as important. If you don't find the fun in it, you'll have a harder time keeping it going-- and you need to do so.
