    People talk about prepping as if it was important, but most have hundreds and maybe thousands of things that are really more important to them then prepping.

    I think of prepping as a life style. It is always in my mind, kind of like the OPSEC process.

    I don't prioritize it. It is just there; like a belief system.

    3rd - Prepping
    4th - Friends
    5th - Community
    6th - Country

    I looked at the comments that came before mine and they all sounded very good, plus they sounded like something I'd say myself. Therefore, I've nothing to add.

    Prepping has been a pattern of daily living as a kid. My parents were both born at the early stages of the Great Depression in deep Appalachia. They never called what the did as prepping but it’s what they did. From them I learned how to raise and grow my food, how to can food, how to repurpose what most people call trash, how to fix thing, how to think for myself, etc.

    For me, prepping is a lifestyle a part of what I consider a “trinity” of sorts with God, Family and Preparedness as the trinity.

    3. Insurance
    This is where most of my money goes. Insurance includes prepping and savings along with regular insurance protecting my family from foreseeable disasters. Fortunately many of my preparations also fall into my pleasures category.

    Living off grid as I do, prepping is pretty high on my list. Prepping means that I am looking ahead to what could happen, & therefore by prepping I am also looking after my whole family. Sure I have other interests, but nothing is more important than survival. Even my 18th century living history interests are connected with prepping & survival.

    My life and life style doesn't distinguish "pure" preparedness for other matters.

    I grew up in a social environment where "survival" related to the downed aviator adrift on a life raft in the South Pacific until rescued a week later, some DPs - displaced persons - fleeing to a location where they would not be killed or placed in slavery during WWII, ... . Storm candles were treated like groceries. Extra water jugs and the extra Thermos was part of "groceries"/food.

    My daily life revolves around the basic groups: food, clothing, shelter. Food incorporates stockpiling and the ability for stockpile to be transportable in case I must flee the dragon (Asian culture), flee the bear, the wolf (European culture) or flee the barbarian hoards (American culture).

    I am "on grid" with the experienced ability to live and thrive "off grid".

    My big addition to the basics is serving as an emergency responder. This is akin to being an auxiliary sentinel on the city wall.

    At my household preparedness is being ramped up again. Some long term foods are nearing their expiration dates so they will need to be rotated and replaced. We are constantly upgrading our preps and continuing to expand on the level of preparedness we are at though. Keeping a close eye on the economy. While we are all being told it is great there are signs in the bond market and elsewhere that say a different possibility. Inverted yield curves are very concerning for one thing. Food prices are on a heavy upswing and considering the flooding that has been happening in the mid-west food prices will continue to rise anyway. Meat may be in for a dramatic rise due to shortages and losses of cattle recently.
