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
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.
Welcome OneHitWonder. May I suggest that you make an extra bag or two with the same contents basically. I'd like to say also that maybe adding a tarp and some 550 paracord. Great start though. Just keep working with your parents
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
