The Marine Corps motto is Semper Fidelis, or Always Faithful, in my unit we jokingly used the term Semper Gumby – after the rubber cartoon character – meaning Always Flexible.
I must have been a very impressionable young Marine, as I took it to heart and the core of my preparedness plan is to develop a flexible mind that allows me to observe, orientate, decide, and then act in whatever manner best solves the problem and to keep from being bound into a concrete dogma.
In today’s show I speak extemporaneously about why I think preppers can learn from all the other prepper types – the bug out, bug in, into the woods with a knife, homestead, frugal, diy, or cash flush gearheads. Every type has its strengths, and every type has it’s weaknesses – I make the case that rather than pick a side, we should pick a little of each.
I also discuss the concept of stress inoculation, of balance, and of having to work toward our goals – and that every choice and step we make in one direction limits us in others, so we have be wise preppers.
The show is scheduled for Monday at 10pm central time at this link.
