Finding other preppers can prove to be a challenge, mostly because many preppers are very private for their own security. Despite many having a “lone-wolf” mentality, they may still offer advice or help. If you’re having trouble finding prepper friends, take a look at the City Prepping video on youtube.
There are a few things you need to understand before going out and looking for prepper buddies. Never outright give all your prepping info away or ask for theirs; trust needs to be built first. If you prematurely let too much information go, you could be putting yourself at risk if SHTF. If you need help with preparing or getting started, don’t come off as too needy. This will only make them wary of you. In turn, don’t take their help for granted, but suggest how you might exchange efforts and information for your mutual benefit.
It’s a good idea to get with other preppers because they may think of something you haven’t. You can trade knowledge and build each other up mutually, while also developing a relationship. These could be ideal survival team members in the future, so make sure they’re valuable in some way. If you want to get your friends or family into prepping, do it slowly. Some people are not open to the idea, and will reject it if not eased into it.
