Preparedness – a state of readiness, especially for war.
There are few topics that capture a man’s imagination more than preparedness.
Whether it’s being prepared for a rainy day, the threat of invasion, or the inevitable zombie apocalypse, the idea of being prepared is something that almost every man has thought about.
While the idea of a self-sustaining homestead in Montana with enough ammo and provisions to last years is exciting, preparedness is much more foundational and essential than that. As is the case with any endeavor, starting small is the key. Making sure you have enough food and water along with basic necessities and provisions to get you through a week or two is something that you can easily execute, starting today.
In this episode of Untaming Masculinity, Dan and Brad discuss the idea of preparedness, what it is and how any man can start to prepare himself and his family for any situation.
They share stories and have an honest and open conversation about what preparedness looks like for them, how they’ve handled previous situations, and what they are currently doing to take care of their families to handle likely scenarios.
They also discuss why it’s crucial to be able to comfortably hunker down at home in an emergency for a week or two and why it’s equally important to have a bug-out bag ready if staying where you are is not an option.
This is a free-flowing conversation filled with a lot of tips and real-life advice.
