In my opinion, they are very similar, a prepper is preparing for the unknown at a minutes notice, while a true survivalist lives in such a way that he is controlling his entire enviroment on a daily basis, I must admit that I am 80% prepper right now and only 20% true survivalist, I am however daily edging my knowledge and my way of life over to the true survivalist. Prepping is not a bad thing by any means, but prepping will only get you thru a short time. If you learn true survival skills, it will create a lifetime of food and shelter. Anyone with any ideas on how to help become a true survivalist, please chime in, I am in the process of setting up to do a weekly podcast from my home studio/office. One thing I would like to leave with you today is this. Chance favors a prepared mind.
