The beginning of fall marks a crucial time for preppers. Only a few weeks remain before winter weather arrives, making prepping more difficult. Every survivalist knows that the next few months are crucial for preparedness. It’s time to stock food, secure the house and bunker down for snowy months.
Here are the five best blogs for you to follow during that time.
