      “Prepper Quote 21 Better to be a warrior in a garden, than a gardener in a war!”

      – Never heard this one before, but I like it.

        That one caught my attention too.  I really don’t understand it, as both are positives.  I agree all preppers should be warriors in the garden.  But I also think I’d rather be a gardener during a war, than a soldier.

        To me it means that it is better to have a warrior mindset and training in a calm peaceful environment like a garden than to be that untrained person that gets placed in a difficult situation like being placed to fight in a war. 

        In other words. Better to be prepared in good times, than to be unprepared during a disaster. That’s how I would reword it for this crowd.

      I saw the following message on Facebook and I can’t get it out of my mind. What are everyone’s thoughts on this? 


      I am leaning towards agreeing with what they said. With 10 families all coming together and pitching in their 20%, great things can happen.

        Good evening Captain Peanut,

        Yes, yes, yes !

        Ten families working together geometricly exceeds what an individual can even think about.

        Emergency situations are dynamic events. So much is changing at a rapid pace. The highly-prepared individual must still sleep, slow down due a bee/wasp sting (or other area types), do errands with conflicting times and environments (check vehicle in daylight, load batteries in gadgets inside dwelling, etc).

        A group is the real answer.

        You are now due for a promotion !
