Episode-465- Technology Based Tools for Preppers

Many preppers seem to shun technology in exchange for more “primitive” skills such as bush-crafting and  stellar/solar navigation.  Personally I feel neither should be relied on to the exclusion of the other.  For instance I carry a lighter in every kit I own but I also know how to make friction fire and I can fire steel as well.  Each tool has its place and acts as redundancy for the others.

A fellow prepper once mocked my use of a GPS, I simply asked if he rode a horse to work on a daily basis.  The point was received with that one question.  Technology can be both a blessing and a curse, it is up to us to fully utilize it while still understanding its limitations.
