If you think about it, camping for a prepper is kind of a no brainer as far as training goes. Sadly, few ever take the opportunity to actually go camping for various reasons. Maybe they think they know it all already, or they can’t stand the idea of sleeping outside (or bugs!) unless forced to. No matter what the reason, you’re a better prepper by camping! Not convinced? Read on!
Unless you are in an actual disaster situation, how else can you really test yourself, ideas and plans safely? Camping affords you the ability to practice skills, gear, and most importantly – yourself – in relative safety. You will test your limits, have to use your adaptation skills, and get a better idea of what you truly need to survive.
You may surprise yourself on how little you need to still be comfortable and functional. Your skills will increase out of necessity, especially the longer you’re out for. There are several other lessons that camping can teach you to make you a better prepper! Unless you get out there and try, you won’t know what areas you need to work on the most, and which ones you excel at!
