New Mexico Urban Homesteader

Hello, I am A 50 Something, Prepper ;-}; former 60's Flower Child, don't believe in taxpayer subsidized special interest groups (political parties), DO believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights (1st 10). Long time Independent & Informed Voter. Lover of the outdoors and firm believer that History Teaches - if only we will listen!

(No longer Urban or in NM. Now Rural in the mountains of Maine.)

This blog was started at the request of some dear friends that wish to become Preppers.

Roots Run Wide & Deep for New Prepper Movement

Basically the New Prepper Movement is a combination of historical events; from governance, living and production methods, to natural, human-made and metaphysical ‘disasters’ or ‘emergencies’; and society’s actions, reactions and responses to these various events.  To visualize this root system is to look into what got us here … 

The concepts of civilian and governmental preparedness have been with us for centuries, almost as long as we have been curious about the future and what dangers it might hold for us. 

Humans have been “Preppers” almost from our very beginnings.  We banded together and helped each other survive the world around us so we could grow and prosper. 

When we formed settlements; we often built walls and moats to protect us, not only from all the predatory animals, but from invasion by others too.  We observed the world around so we could anticipate natural threats to our lives.   We even ‘commissioned’ patrols and watches to keep an eye out for any danger. 

Read on to find out how this New Prepper Movement came to be:  From Drums & Bell Towers to Town Criers and Headline Hawkers; From Telegraph to Radio & Telephone to today's Internet.

It's been a long road to maturity, but our roots now extend wide and go deep ;-}
