    Good day Young prepper & welcome to this forum. Learning all the skills you need can take years to get as good as you can be. But if you want a tip re equipment, think SUSTAINABLE. Don't go for modern gadgets which are just a waste of money & not sustainable. There are some modern gadgets worth thinking about, such as a water filter & a medical kit.

    I would like to give you a big warm welcome to here!

    Keith beat me to it...while modern technology is great and in many ways "superior" because it's faster and easier, sustainability is king in my book. One day we could run out of (whatever makes the modern things work...electricity, filters, and the "beans-bullets-bandaids"), then what?

    I like to look at primitive ways as backups for my back-up plans. But it is a work in progress! For years, I have been inching my way towards the ultimate goal of being able to survive Hard Times of every imaginable kind...with only my hands and mind. Why? Because things don't always go as planned...especially when SHTF is involved.

    Most people (including me) rely a lot on STUFF. Having a truly self-reliant mindset forces me to exercise my skills and to learn new things that will serve me well now and in the future.

    welcome from the UK.
    I look at it this way, modern equipment is okay as long as it lasts but in a long term situation there wont be any replacements being made, no electric no manufacturing base, so use it to get to a place or point in time where you can function without them, think simple think basic some would call them "primitive" life styles.

    A warm welcome, Y.P.,

    Per request, some tips:

    Place priority on the EMS/paramedic training. During your ditch doctor training, you'll see quality catalogs of personal use supplies ( and community loadout trailers, etc !) and PPE. You'll be mingling with others who will be sharing comments and free advice. Then, you'll be developing a knowledge-base to work with.

    Another tip: Don't idealize. Your hunting and camping experience is limited. Rely on the FEMA guidance to train for realistic worst-case scenarios.

    It would assist all to know your area/state to ramble on about topographic matters, regional jurisprudence differences and etc.

    Again: Welcome !

    Young Prepper,

    A good, but basic, website worth surfing around is Center For Disease Control, easy to load site (in contradistinction to FEMA's which I not longer glance at).

    Check out https://www.cdc.gov

    At top bar, the 4th category titled "Emergency Preparedness" provides the basics.

    Welcome Young Prepper. I am interested in your claim to have perfected you hunting skills. I have been hunting for around 40 years and while I consider myself "proficient"; I definitely have not "perfected" my skills.

    Welcome from Missouri. Good to have you with us. A few questions to ask yourself as a new prepper. Why are you prepping? What are your top priorities? Are you prepping in a rural environment, or an urban or suburban environment? What are the most likely SHTF scenarios you are going to face?

    When you are comfortable with the direction you want to go, I would focus on five main categories: Shelter, Water, Food, Fire, and Security. There is a lot of information here. Look at the old posts. If you can't find what you need start a new thread, and ask the question. There are many people here experienced on a wide range of topics. Everyone is willing to help.

    Welcome aboard. The longest journey begins with the first step. You have taken that first step, by wanting to start.
