Have you every stopped to think about just how many different prepper related items and pieces of equipment there are on the market? The are literally thousands of them, and more likely than not you’ve managed to accumulate quite a number of them over the years!
All of these items are touted by their manufacturers and suppliers as being essential, and that’s quite understandable, they are in business to make a profit after all.
But just how many of them really are truly essential? How many of them should we endeavor to ensure that we always have access to? The answer as far as I’m concerned is really quite small. Sure, there’s a lot that are good to have, but not necessarily essential.
The guy that prepared the list over the next page is a former counter intelligence office, and he’s learned (probably the hard way) what really is essential to carry with you.
