In today’s show, we will be going over some unique places to hide things in your homes and talk a bit about what people get wrong about prepping. Because this episode aired on YouTube on 9-11, we will also talk about what happened that day and how the world has changed since then.

For a short time after the attacks on the twin towers, America stood together like we rarely see. While we must celebrate all the heroes that day, we can’t avoid thinking about how our country changed in the months following 9-11.

Secret Stash Locations in Your Home

Most people choose not to think about disasters until they happen. As preppers, we not only choose to think about how a disaster scenario might play out, we think about the worst-case scenario. Not because we hope it will unfold that way, but because we want to be prepared if it does. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Because of this, we are always looking for new ideas to secure the supplies, food, and other important stuff. In today’s show, we go over an article we found that has some interesting ideas about hiding spots around your home that most people wouldn’t even think about.

9-11 & the After Effects

We started the show by talking about the heroes on 9-11. These heroes were firefighters, police officers, office workers, and average citizens. These people showed the true American spirit and put their lives on the line to help others.

The day’s following 9-11 made me feel prouder to be an American than I have felt in a long time, and that sentiment permeated the country.  Unfortunately, that patriotic mentality didn’t last very long and led to the government restricting and removing our freedoms, all in the name of safety and security.

While there is no doubt that some of the measures taken, like the Patriot Act, made it easier to hunt down terrorists, it has since then been used against American citizens.

What people get Wrong about Prepping

Whether it’s from inside the prepper community or outside, there are quite a few things that people get wrong about prepping & preparedness. People looking from the outside it often have misconceptions about what prepping is, and people on the inside get things wrong sometimes.

In todays show we talked about what some of these misconceptions are, and what people who have taken an interest in preparedness can do better.
