In Episode #  37 we continue with low cost/no cost prepping activities. This particulat one doesnt cost money, just some time, and can increase your knowledge base exponentially. Here's our recommendations.

Read online articles.
There is a plethora of information on the internet, just sitting there waiting to be perused, and much of it is free. Sure, you have to weed through some poppycock here and there, but there are many trustworthy sites available. Here are some of out favorites.

Our website, of course. www.practicalprepping.info  a great place for starting out
prepperwebsite.com    a daily compilation of articles from many prepper sites
thesurvivalmom.com  a mom who cared enough for her family to start prepping
Prepper.com  a site to take you toward sustainability
mdcreekmore.com  this guy has skills! He shares them freely.
shtfplan.com  - many current event articles as they relate to prepping
theprepared.com     a lot of "The best <fill in the blank> articles"

Join online prepping forums
There is a lot of noise you will need to weed through, and some people don't think it through before answering, like the single mom on a limited budget asking about getting started and was told to buy five acres in a secluded location. Yeah, right. Scroll on, nothing of value.
However, there are some knowledgeable preppers who freely share info. Ask your questions then seek consensus in opinions and you'll usually be ok.
These are good places to glean ideas, take them and customize them to fit your needs.
Facebook, MEWE, Parlor and other platforms have prepper groups, gardening groups, ham radio groups and groups for about any topic. Some are regional groups, some national, and some international.
The persona of the groups can range from warm and friendly to downright rude. Stay out of the drama and just scroll on by where appropriate, but there is good information in some of them.
