There used to be a big group of teens, but they're all busy nowadays. Can't blame em though, I'm just trying to keep up with all the tasks at hand

I know quiet a few teenage preppers, they are busy now but I talk to them. The thing that I found was the hardest thing was letting my parents know. If any teenage preppermwants my advice let me know. I found it hard but built up to it and know a few things that went well and things that didn't

If you wish, I put up a separate thread for exactly those kinds of questions and answers, please feel free to share your experiences there! :)

Here's one. 14 and alone in my family. Everyone else thinks it's stupid, so I'm kind of on my own. I just keep a backpack full of MREs, first aid supplies, a couple of pocket knives and about 30 extra shells for my 12 gauge next to my nightstand.

Also, a bed roll may not be a bad idea to help insulate you from the ground. Can also be done with leaves, but man a bed roll would be comfortable. I'd also suggest getting some warm winter gloves if you are in a cold climate. Frozen hands won't do you much good and will make your survival infinitely more difficult. I dont know if you watch DDP on nat geo, but a guy was using a big fresnel lens and was burning wood instantaneously with it. Might not be a bad idea for a couple of bucks to pick one up as another way to start a fire

My dad has a lot of camping supplies such as matches and a tent. He isn't a prepper, but I'm 100% positive he will let us use his stuff in a doomsday scenario.
