This prepper precept is common sense. It’s better to be home, rather than be a refugee in a shelter, but if you have to leave, you might not have time to pack a bag – have a Plan A and Plan B, C, and D
Plans fail, that is why we have emergencies and disasters. Things don’t always go as planned. That does not mean you should not have a plan because the very act of planning has value in itself – it helps identify problems, solutions, pitfalls, and resources.
But having a single plan is not enough. Have backups and options. You will thank yourself for it later.
These precepts are my creed, and having prepper precepts guides me when I face tough choices. A wise man once told me that when facing a moral problem, the right choice is usually the action you don’t want to take.
I am not a pollyanna person that is wishy washy or blindly follows rules, heck I have a little rebellious streak and love to know the WHY of rules, but I do respect and understand the need for law and know how vital it is for a society to have a moral code.
By knowing my beliefs in you can know how I will act. This is very important in times of stress. If you don’t want to read these each prepper precept individually, the completed list can be found here: Completed 27 Prepper Precepts.
