    Money is the big problem because you have to stockpile a lot of money in case the future is good. Time is also a problem, if I had more time I could make more money for preps and learn more. I work out and am still healthy but at 60 years old I guess some things have passed me by.

      Sounds like you're more prepared than 99% of people below 30, definitely something to be proud of..

        $10 week can accumulate a hell of a lot over a year or so. Did for me!

        Rice, pasta, oats, etc etc etc.

          This may sound weird, but anyone can prep if they want to....I was a ingle mom of 3 in the nineties. My husband did not pay child support so I turned to welfare. I received 350 a month in food stamps. I purchased only bulk or items on sale, I cooked all meals from scratch. At the end of one year, we had stockpiled a six month supply of foods and eaten extremely well. I was able to get a job and purchased bulk goods from the lds warehouse and added to our pile. I canned or dehydrated anything that came our way while in season...it can be done!

            While money does in many ways seem to be a necessity, skills will always get you paid. At 60 I'm sure that life has given you many valuable skills, worthy of inclusion of any prepping group and if not, it's never to late to learn. What chaps my ass, is how today's youth think they know it all and have all the answers. They dismiss the old ways thinking that their tablets and iPods are all they need to live a productive life. For God sake, they don't even socialize in real time anymore. Everything is Facebook and twitter. (this as I type behind an anonymous user name from behind my puter) you got to love the hypocrisy.

            But I digress. I simply feel that we all have something to offer. A unique perspective, based on our own life experiences. Those things that make us who we are and different form anyone else on earth. Here is a site that looks to explore, that which is different in each of us, while trying to find that which binds us numerically, https://www.eclecticenergies.com/enn...tion.php#wings Don't make the mistake of believing your "type" is the be all end all of your existence. Your number is just the base from which you analyze your strengths and weaknesses. We all are unique and have gone through the things in life that make us who we are, to bring that perspective into the world and help others learn from us.

            So even when you think that your existence is without merit or that you have nothing to offer, see how your unique self, has only what you can bring to the table. It's that uniqueness that makes you vital, no matter where you are.

              Check that out, just received it in my inbox. Fate. There are pros and cons of every age. Too young and you don't even consider having to be ready for multiple scenarios but you have the strength and enthusiasm. Too old and you can't do the things you used to but have a bunch of past experiences and knowledge to fall back on. I do think that in this day and age, with modern technology like solar energy, it's easier now more than ever for the elderly to confidently be prepared for most scenarios. The internet allows many things to be delivered right to your door instead of having to drive hours away and back with goods. The truth is the best scenario for anyone would be to realize how important planning ahead for SHTF at a young age but how often do you come across a kid that cares about economic collapse or WW3? Most these days are more about video games, movies and clothing. No matter how old you are, if you see the light, you'll wish you started a decade ago. I'm in my mid thirties and I kick myself for caring and spending time and money on B.S. for 95% of my life. It hurts but there are plenty of 45 year olds that only care about sports and getting wasted. I'm just thankful I didn't turn out like that. I was well on my way but things happen for a reason. I'm sure you have prepared enough to where you can at least sleep at night knowing you'll be OK if things go sour. I'm not at that point yet but hope to be within a few years, God willing.
