When it comes to prepping we do so much research and we take heed to most of what we are told. That way, should the day ever come when our skills are put to the test we will have an advantage over those who sat back and did nothing but trust that others would take care of them should the need arise.
Throughout history, we can read account after account of people who went to great lengths to prepare and accounts of those who did not. In fact, recently there was an account of a man who put a large air tube around his house in the event of massive rains that were said to be headed his way and even as others scoffed at his paranoia his property was saved and his family was saved as his neighbor's houses flooded and their possessions lost.
But how do we separate the good advice from the bad? The legit tips and tricks from the ones that are just plain silly? How do we know what will really happen?
