5 Realities You’ll Face In An SHTF World

You’re Probably Not Thinking About This In An SHTF World!

We have never really been in a prolonged SHTF scenario in this country, at least not in our modern day.  But if it ever happens, and I hope it doesn’t, there are things that many people aren’t really thinking about.  Unfortunately, many believe SHTF will just mean life would be like a very long extended camping trip.  That is the furthest from the truth!  An SHTF World will be bad, really bad!

In a recent video, I talked about my favorite article of the week that I read on The Prepper Website Podcast.  The article comes from Ask a Prepper and is titled, “7 Terrifying Realities Of Long-Term Blackouts (That You’ve Probably Never Considered).”  I used that article to bounce off of an talk about my thoughts on an SHTF World

Some of the topics that came up were water, trash, sewage, paying bills and neighbors who will cause you problems, even if they are leaving you alone in your home.  Again, these are things that not everyone thinks about.  I hope you watch or listen to the video and share your thoughts below.

In the video, I mention a British version of American Blackout.  You can watch it by clicking here.
