We all have things we want to do, and most of us have a plan to get to our goal. Setting goals and making plans is a big part of survival, but is also a big part of life. We all need to have goals and we all need to have some kind of plan to go with our goals. I have had a plan for survival for over 20 years and I bet you it has changed 200 times or more. I think my plan changed as my survival skill grew. The more I learned and the more I tried new skill the more my plan changed. Now years later I look back at the first few years I was getting into survival, I just shake my head and laugh. I know I was green and just starting out and I think about all the dumb ass little bits of gear I bought over the years I laugh out loud.
But I know better now and I don't get burned as much with gear now, from time to time I get something that is cool but turns out to be junk. This all goes with trial and error and planning for survival. Being a survivalist is all about planning and working to your goals, but when you get to you goal moving the bar a little higher. Being a survivalist means always reaching for a goal that is just out of your reach and never getting to the end of your to do list. I don't think we as survivalist will ever get to a point when we say, "Hey I'm as ready as I will ever need to be."
Keep up with your prepping and keep working to your goal for survival, because the collapse is coming.
