These are the different classes of preppers you may encounter on your preparedness journey. You may fit into one class perfectly or be split up over a few different ones to help shore up some of the weaknesses. Some you want to avoid and others you should aspire to, but they all have their advantages and disadvantages.

The Sheeple
A person who doesn’t prep but can be considered a prepper at level 0. They believe that no large scale disasters will happen to them and that electricity, food and water will always be available on demand.

Pros

● A swift death

Cons
● Thirst/Hunger
● No skills
● No knowledge

The Hoarder
A prepper who simply stockpiles supplies such as weapons, food and water, neglecting most other things.

Pros
● Tons of supplies
● Ability to share their supplies with others
● May be able to barter their supplies

Cons
● Requires constant stockpile rotation
● Limited skills
● Limited knowledge

The Accidental Prepper
People with a natural tendency to be prepared such as INTJs and related personality types. They often prep short term and for multiple scenarios without realizing it.

Pros

Cons
● Not prepared for long term disasters
● Not prepared for ‘rare’ disasters

● Keen interest in survival

Cons
● Still a way to go to learn all the essential skills required
● May suffer from prepper burnout after realizing they are only at the start

The Survivalist
These preppers have honed bushcraft skills and can live off the land if the situation calls for it. They can find wild edibles, craft shelters and purify water with only what they have around them. They are often solo but this helps to greatly increase their stealth and speed up their journey.

Pros
● Can survive in the woods
● Plant/Animal Identification
● Medicinal plant experience
● Natural plant remedies
● Stealthy when solo

Cons
● Loneliness
● No stocks of food
● Plans to only bug out
● No comforts of home
● May not survive in a widespread, nature killing disaster

The Homesteader
They own a house, land and usually a farming plot and animals for self sufficiency. They are self sustainable and can grow, manufacture and recycle what they need at home.

Pros
● General homestead skills
● Surrounded by family
● Can save money
● Self sufficient
● Not dependant on civilization
● Ample storage space
● Can produce what they require

Cons

● Not inclined to bug out
● Crops can easily be stolen/destroyed
● Cold winters can eradicate their food source
● May not have access to news

The Self-Defence Prepper
In good shape, knows hand to hand combat and is concerned about smaller daily disasters. They have, or are in the armed forces and have military experience.

Pros
● Very fit
● Can protect themselves
● Great at stealth
● Great at teamwork
● Knowledgeable about combat

Cons
● Lacks preps and stockpiles
● Weak against guns
● May not trust others

The Minimalist
They keep their stockpile to a minimum and focuses on skills to further reduce the weight of their pack. They may drill holes in their toothbrush…

Pros
● Spends less money on fewer items
● Great skills
● Light and fast travel
● Knowledge replaces gear
● Can leave their old life easily

Cons
● Spends MUCH more money on ultralightweight gear
● Lack of gear when bugging-in
● May spend a lot of money on their quest for knowledge

The Know-It-All
Gains knowledge about prepping but doesn’t do much to actually prepare. They can spend hours watching YouTube videos getting ideas but rarely puts any of them into action.

Pros
● Good knowledge on prepping
● Can lead others
● Can assist others

Cons
● Unprepared
● Few items
● Needs real world experience

The Economist
Focused on protecting their wealth via precious metals and stockpiles for barter in SHTF. They may also aim to profit from a disaster by bartering essentials for precious metals to sell afterwards.

Pros
● Can barter what they need if SHTF without stocking up on anything
● Only have to worry about stocking up on one type of resource.

Cons
● Neglects other preparedness areas such as knowledge and skills
● They rely on the fact that metals and tradables can be used as money and that people will be honourable

● Has detailed Topographic maps and other military equipment
● Tactical Gear
● Can survive harsh environments

Levels of Preparedness

This is an excerpt from my PDF ‘The Preparedness Encyclopedia (TPE)’.
Download the PDF Version Here

This is a classification of all preppers and gives a general idea of how prepared they are, what skills are known and their commitment to prepping.
A lot of assumptions are made such as the amount of space the person has and that they have a job.

Level 0 (Sheeple)
A prepper, but someone who doesn’t participate in disaster preparedness at all. At most they have three days of food in the pantry for power outages or strong storms.

Level 1 (Wannabe)
A person who has been impacted by a disaster, TV series or other media and thought prepping is a good idea and they decide to take a few minor steps and stock a few extra items. At this stage they either fall away from prepping or pursue more information. Generally this stage is about reading, watching and understanding what preparedness is.

Level 2 (Beginner Prepper)
Someone who has a weeks or so worth of food, a BOB and some action plans for disasters. People at this level are starting to get serious and often just buy, buy, buy to fill their BOB and pantry.

Level 3 (Prepper)
This type of person is becoming quite invested in being prepared for disasters with a BOB, skills and knowledge in survivalism and a month to 4 months worth of food and water per person. Usually people at this stage overfill their BOBs and generally have some simple plans for bugging out.

Level 4 (Confident Prepper)
This stage marks an increase in food and water again to around 6 months per person and they are looking into alternative bug out plans and may have a vehicle for it. They look at items critically and only keep what they need. People usually start to spread out into alternative bags such as INCH bags and GH bags. These people spend a lot of their free time preparing.

Level 5 (Hardcore Prepper)
Preppers at level 5 have usually branched out into a working prepper pantry where they use the items they are stocking and replenish every week, have a complete lightweight BOB and extensive plans for bugging out in multiple types of disasters. They still have a job but spend most of their free time preparing.

Level 6 (Devoted Prepper)
These people spend almost all of their free time prepping and have extensive knowledge about most aspects of preparedness. They have a stockpile of food and water from 6m-1y per person and are slowly consuming it and adding to it. They may have a plot of land and a building for a BOL stocked with some food but they definitely have multiple plans to GOOD in a SHTF situation.

Level 7 (Doomsday Prepper)
An extremely prepared person who devotes every waking second to prepping, they often have a job related to prepping or have quit their job to pursue it full time. They have many years worth of food per person, vast amounts of experience and often have bunkers or BOLs filled with supplies and often have family drills for SHTF situations.

Where are you at on your prepping journey?

The Preparedness Encyclopedia v9 News Speel

Everywhere you look in 2020 there are signs of global panic taking hold as the system we once knew comes to a breaking point. This panic seems to be felt worldwide and comes in the forms of:
● A worldwide pandemic which continues to spread rapidly throughout most nations, causing shutdowns of most shops, millions of layoffs and an economy artificially propped up;
● National unrest and widespread riots in a multitude of countries such as America, Hong Kong, Venezuela, Brazil, Paris, the United Kingdom, Canada and Chile among others;
● Brewing tensions between multiple countries such as China and India, Egypt and Ethiopia, and Turkey and Greece each of which has the potential to escalate to war;
● Colossal plagues of locusts in Africa that have never been seen for hundreds of years, causing mass food shortages for much of the continent;
● The ongoing conflict between Israel and Muslim countries escalated by the annexation;
● And to top it off the terrifying increase in earthquakes around the world in both frequency and magnitude.

People are beginning to wake up and ask the bigger questions like: “What if the system doesn’t re-stabilize?”, “What if I lose my job permanently and can’t afford to feed my family?”, “What if the economy collapses due to the shutdowns?”, “What effects will the 2020 U.S. election have on the world?”, “What are the causes behind the madness?”. Unfortunately most people don’t have answers to their questions and are at the end of their rope. They simply can’t handle the daily stress and utter chaos in the world anymore and choose to take the easy way out, sadly as someone I knew recently did.

TPE is becoming more relevant by the minute as the face of our planet vastly changes day by day. What we once knew, even back in January is now a distant memory, in a time when the problems of the world couldn’t be further away. This chaos is now in our own countries, cities, towns and amidst our own families causing dissent and the breaking down of the very fabric of our society.

I recommend we all dust off our bug-out plans to ensure they are up to date and are still viable in the chance you need to use them in the coming months. Go through your BOBs and ensure your food is still within their expiry dates and your purification tables and other medicines are also within their limits. It may also be wise to purchase any last minute items which you were eyeing off just in case the economy does take a fall and you aren’t able to purchase gear any more.

It may be too late to start prepping now if you aren’t prepared already as many of the supply chains are broken, people are panic buying, riots are ensuing the world, millions are out of jobs and businesses remain shut. There is no easy way out of the downward spiral that we’re currently in, especially when the economies of the world remain closed and lawlessness abounds. The evil behind it all is to break the stranglehold of capitalism we’re in and institute socialism in America and a global government to rule over the nations of the world. This is being accomplished methodically through the dismantling of: the law (law enforcement and policies); harmony (blacks vs whites, rich vs poor); the values (traditional biblical values) and the history (statues and historical art) to allow a rebirth of a new world order from the ashes of capitalism, brought about by the very people living within its borders in every country.

The future of the planet seems grim at the moment and the decline will continue as morality and the values our great countries were founded on continue to be eroded. The conspiracies section in this guide focuses on the goals of this stealthy subversion and the continued demise of godly countries, including real world examples of how each one is being fulfilled or has been fulfilled. If you’re losing hope in humanity, terrified of what is to come, scared to leave your house or are asking any of the questions mentioned above, you should look at the only source which has been completely accurate to date – the bible. The stage is almost completely set for the end times to occur, where everything will change in the twinkling of an eye and a string of disasters of ‘biblical’ proportions take place. If you don’t believe any of it, that’s fine – just keep in mind the events which have to be fulfilled below and return when they happen.

Keep your eyes out for the release of version 9 of The Preparedness Encyclopedia in August 2020.

The Preparedness Encyclopedia (TPE) – Version 8

The seventh version of The Preparedness Encyclopedia has been released! You can find it at the link below.
Download TPE Here

If you’re not sure what it’s all about:
“The Preparedness Encyclopedia is a comprehensive and portable collection of crucial information designed exclusively to assist in your survival from any catastrophe that may arise, and to help in the rebuilding of society afterwards.”

I’ve been working on this personal preparedness guide almost every day since June 2017 when I started prepping and wanted a collection of information in a single document on my phone. It has grown substantially over time and now contains over 3.45 million words, so I decided to share it with the public. I designed the PDF to easily be put on a mobile device and forgotten until needed and can be searched for any particular needs during disasters.

Version 8 features the conversion of the rest of the guide to the new, larger and easier to read style. A title page was added to make it feel more like a book. There are also major updates to the INJURY, ELECTRICITY and LOCATIONS categories and a smaller update to the Pandemic section in MAN-MADE DISASTERS alongside lots of minor fixes and changes throughout the guide.

The guide is constrained to a size limit of 100mb but it’s currently well below that at about 55mb. It’s also designed to be fast and to be read on your mobile device by any PDF reader while you’re on the go, which will make it easy to use during any disaster (as long as you have power). It can be read on phones, tablets, laptops or desktops and easily be transferred between them based on your needs.

For details on what’s new in this version, see the “UPDATES” section in the guide.

Traditional vs Modern Ethics

This is a table on topics such as Abortion, Marriage and Homosexuality describing the opposing viewpoints between Modern and Traditional thought processes with bible verses backing up the traditional view.

Today we see our world falling into chaos, one news headline after another as we lose the traditional and Godly values which used to uphold our society.

Why is a person who was a man allowed to compete against women in weightlifting?
Why are so many mothers killing their babies in abortion only to later regret it and contemplate suicide?
Why are men who dress up as women allowed to read stories to children in libraries?
Why are so many people convinced they evolved from chimps and not divinely created?
Why can’t parents discipline their children physically anymore, causing rebellious teens and adults?
These are some of the questions discussed in the PDF.

If you’re not sure what it’s all about:
“The Preparedness Encyclopedia is a comprehensive and portable collection of crucial information designed exclusively to assist in your survival from any catastrophe that may arise, and to help in the rebuilding of society afterwards.”

I’ve been working on this guide almost every day since June 2017 and it has substantially grown from 10 categories to 82 and contains 25,700+ rows of valuable information. The PDF file is designed to be put on a mobile device and forgotten until needed and can be searched for your particular needs during disasters – but as preppers we should be practicing our skills on a daily basis to give us the best fighting chance.

Version 7 contains a COLOSSAL visual update to 70% of the guide converting most of the data from the ‘cell format’ to an easier to read ‘Word Document’ format. Sorry it’s taken so long! This should greatly reduce the need to zoom into it as much. Most of this update consists of the new formatting but there is also quite a bit of new content in many of the categories, but particularly in SHELTER and GEOGRAPHY.

The guide is constrained to a size limit of 100mb but it’s currently well below that at about 49mb. It’s also designed to be fast and to be read on your mobile device by any PDF reader while you’re on the go, which will make it easy to use during any disaster (as long as you have power).
