For those of you new to Backdoor Survival, living a strategic life is something that I encourage everyone to embrace, prepper or not. As a matter of fact, it is so important to me personally that I co-authored a book about it, 11 Steps to Living a Strategic Life: A Guide to Survival During Uncertain Times.
In a nutshell, living a strategic life means that you are able to take care of yourself and your family no matter what Mother Nature and the Universe decides to drop in your lap. And while talk about a global collapse is dramatic sounding and the cause for major, life-altering concern, a realistic assessment of the odds suggests that more commonplace emergencies and disasters are singularly the reason we prepare.
This is not to diminish preparing for the likelihood of a collapse, of course, but rather to focus on risks of life that can happen any day, any time, to anyone.
