Have the wildfires made you rethink your plans?
Hello everyone, long time reader, first time poster. Let me start by thanking everyone responsible for this invaluable resource.
I, like so many other preppers, have long imagined, and have been actively working towards, a dream of moving out to the forest to create secluded and sustainable compound. It’s the ultimate prepper dream, one that many have already realized. But the wild fires of the past few years really have me rethinking this strategedy. There is no doubt that these fires have been a total SHTF event for many people, and there is a cruel irony imaging it happening to those who moved to remote regions to avoid catastrophy – only to realize they inadvertantly placed themselves right in catastrophy’s way.
I’m curious if people are re-thinking this long held prepper blueprint. It’s not like these fires are going to stop if there is some larger societal breakdown, in fact without active fire-fightening agencies the fires will only be worse and more severe. I’m also curious to hear from those of you who are currently living in remote locations and wondering if wildfire response has become part of your preperations.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
