Ask DEMCAD: Young Prepper goes to College

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)

A younger viewer asked me what he should do when he goes off to college.

"I'm heading college next year, and not sure how I will continue to prep while in college. I prep low scale now, once I'm out of college and get a real job im going to start prepping hardcore like you do. Should I bring my small BOB/Inch bag with me to college. maybe you could make a video about this."

Whatever you do, I would focus on water. Dehydration kills fast in a crisis. I would make sure I had plenty of water and more importantly, make sure I had a way of purifying water.

Make sure the backpack (bug out bag) is light weight. And don't buy something that sticks out. Go to garage and estate sales to find flashlights and ponchos or tools. But don't go overboard, keep the cost and weight as low as you can. You can build a first aid kit with items from dollar tree. You can buy alcohol swaps, burn creme ointment, hot packs, pads, gauzes and band aids for a dollar each. You may want to buy higher end gauze, but the rest of the stuff can be acquired for a buck. Good luck.
