When the crap hits the fan, we need to be ready to live a life of self sufficiency, be self reliant and self sustainable.
First of all, what does self sufficient mean?
According to the dictionary, it means "needing no outside help in satisfying one's basic needs, especially with regard to the production of food."
For us preppers and homesteaders, it also means getting off the grid and relying on ourselves as much as possible.
So that means that you must know how to be self sustainable and self reliant, like our grandparents did during the Depression.
Signs Of The Times
We live in a time where everything is digital, everything is quick and everything is bustling. We no longer can live without our iPhones (or cellphones in general), laptops, or our fancy iPads.
