Ep 120: Camping IS Good Prepping

Camping out and Camping in are great ways to test yourself and your preps as a prepper and survivalist.  A camping trip is a rudimentary, essential activity to test one’s self-preparedness and I do it all the time.  Also, consider camping in and use only your preps to survive.  Turn off the phone, power and water.  What are you left with?  The results will be invaluable to you and your family in improved prepping going forward.

Camping IS good Prepping BECAUSE:

You can use the opportunity to manage:

  • food
  • water
  • shelter
  • clothing
  • cooking and misc. supplies

You can also use this trip to learn about the unpleasant things you don’t want to talk about:

  • hygiene w/ limited water
  • bathroom and waste issues, including storage, removal, smell management, sanitation

You will also be able to do a readiness assessment of your preps, your family’s readiness and address those weaknesses (only if you write them down (so you remember them) and work on them)

You will also, hopefully, leave most modern conveniences (like cell phones & ipods) at home so the kids (and you) can get re-introduced to “reality:”

Now that you’ve gotten some outdoors/prepping experience under your belt:


See how your preps work when you have to live an entire weekend with no power, running water, etc.

You will learn so much..I’ve done this many times “unplanned” by circumstance, but never by choice.  I will camp in with the family “on purpose” sometime soon.


I hope this episode gets the ball rolling and I wish you all the best.
