This article is several years old, but I just came across it recently and the advice is timeless. There’s a reason John Donne said, “No man is an island, entire of itself.” Some people are more independent than others, and some people might be capable of surviving a very long time on their own.

That’s why it’s so important to make friends with other preppers, or at least get to know your neighbors. Even if they aren’t preppers, they could have skills that would be useful if the SHTF. And if nothing else, they could help with operational security. And that’s just a couple reasons building a community is so important.

Who in your neighborhood do you trust?” Follow the link below to keep reading.
