How do you get into prepping without having it consume all your life?

How do you get into prepping without having it consume all your life? I watched some videos and read some articles about it but most people who starts to prep seems to get overhelmed with it until it becomes their only "hobby"

        >bio-tech

        Genetically engineered and cybernetically augmented animals with heighted intelligence and longer life spans for considerable service time.

        Image a pack of smart dogs who can patrol areas on their own and coordinate actions such as taking down targets and psi-ops to control movement and provide survelliance while being able to hunt and tend to its own needs if necessary.

    Realize that you're not gonna hold out for years in a zombie apocalypse. Your goal with prepping should be to last a few months until the government/militia/local warlord can restore order.

    Also sauce?

      Prep for realistic shtf realities. The reality is there is no great apocalypse, like said, plan for a couple months to 6 months tops, leave it at that. Even if it's a bigger shtf scenario, that should give you enough time to establish at least a local community

      this, humans build ordered systems for fun, disasters are real, but don't last longer than a month or so unless the disaster is a war, in which case fight or leave.

    You really can’t. If you actually want to be prepared it has to be your life. You can make that your life though, owning a farm and raising livestock is literally how your ancestors lived not that many decades ago.

    Societal collapse scenarios as commonly envisioned by preppers are a meme. Throughout history there have been tons of massively disastrous events. All of them have been best approached by working together as a society rather than every man for himself bullshit. What does go away during hard times is luxury items beyond the basic necessities, so if you're concerned about prepping, you should be worried about maintaining access to the things you enjoy rather than stocking up on food or other basic needs that will still be available.

      This.
      Your best start is following basic guidelines that are posted everywhere by civil sources. The TLDR is you need enough to get by for 2-4 weeks for whoever lives with you. Anything past that is just gravy... or will drive you crazy, which is sort of what you're seeing w/ preppers.

        I'd say closer to 2 weeks. Also a bug out bag because natural and man made disasters where evacuation is necessary on extremely short notice do happen. Again, follow guidelines from government sources for what to keep in it and have a plan for where you can go or who you can stay with. Only time it makes sense to worry about stuff past what the government advises for a bug out bag is if you don't have a place you can go due to being a serious loner or whatever reason, in which case planning for camping like families will sometimes do if they end up temporarily homeless can make sense.

    Just buy some canned goods every time you go out, any retard can have a few years food supply in no time.

      pretty much this just buy a bit of extra non perishable food maybe a big-ass bag of dried beans and or rice for emergencies (white rice lasts 2ish years so you can rotate it overtime). If you already have guns do the same for ammo as you do for food. Any big ticket items or electronics don't put yourself into debt to get them save overtime and don't fall for stupid as seen on tv bullshit like "doomsday generators"

    More like you only hear about those because the ones that aren't actually retarded keep quiet about it and keep it at a reasonable level.
    Just don't be fucking retarded.
    Duh.

    i don't and wouldn't suggest it. you'd be dead a couple days/weeks after the people who didn't bother. why would you even want to survive for an extended period of time in that environment?

    What's a good place to ask questions for prepping? For instance I want to talk about rice storage. Everyone says weevils are a big problem but what's the big deal? I have some rice bags that I just put in a spare room and didn't freeze or heat them. So if there were weevil eggs do they make the rice toxic? I see ancient peoples put the rice in the sun to kill bugs apparently but why? So what if I have a few bugs in my rice? Or does it make it inedible? Also is there a substitute mylar bags that doesn't require heating a bag? I need a good safe airtight seal to store rice.

    Also OP to answer your question prepping is important, we are heading to disaster but it's not that big of a deal. Basically you're just learning some new skills here and there and buying a little extra long term food now and then. The shooting stuff is fun and our hobby and knowing how to purify water and all that is hiking stuff which I'd encourage anyone to know/do just because nature is awesome. But realistically there are 2 options:
    >Society is in a really bad position but doesn't go full apocalypse, basically just a bad depression with violence
    Or
    >It is so bad that you don't survive anyways
    I know for a fact that it's the second one but I'm going to try and ease the suffering of my family and as many other people as possible.

      These are good questions. I wish I had an answer.

    Prepping:

    >drain your bank account
    >buy pallets of gross dehydrated or canned food
    >Keep them in the dark for the next 6 years
    >nothing happens
    >decide to check your "inventory"
    >everything tastes like ass
    >you're not starving so you aren't eating it
    >try to unload it on food bank, nope.jpg
    >end up composting it

    Congrats on achieving nothing

    I live alone. This is disadventageous to prepping, for no matter how armed you are, a single man will perish if things get bad enough.
    Despite this, I currently have a year long lease at a house in a small town of the midwest. I have near two years of food, and about a year's worth of water (I know, working on that). Weapons of course, as well as multiple tools and first aid things.

    My plan was to buy around 30 acres of property somewhere once my lease is up, but I am starting to doubt whether this is the best idea. I like to move around, and visit different areas.

    Would it be better to buy a van or some truck and then load it with preps and tools, with a plan to bug out to a predefined and already set up location in the wilderness? This would keep me more hidden I feel, and would allow me to live in more populated areas where I am more likely to meet new people (I enjoy socializing).
    This is of course assuming I go camping often to pick up skills and learn bushcrafting.
