It’s no secret that there’s more prepper gear on the market now than there ever has been. This undoubtably is a result of prepping being the topic of so many reality TV shows such as Doomsday Preppers.
As we were talking, we had an interesting discussion about what we would choose if we could only choose between stockpiling gear or gaining knowledge.
I’m posting this article with the hope that we can get lots of preppers weighing in with their opinion about this question. If you would like to participate in this poll, please feel free to leave your answer in the comment box below.
As more opinions come in, I’ll update this post to reflect what the most popular answer at the time is.
Before I turn you all loose on this one, let me just lay down one ground rule. You have to choose one or the other.
I know, I know. None of us are actually only going to chose one or the other in real life. Most of us would probably say that we need to have both in order to be properly prepared. Most preppers would probably also agree that we need both gear AND the knowledge about how use our gear in the most frugal and efficient way possible.
I’m sure there will be some people who won’t read this entire article and will answer “both” so let this be fair warning, any answers that say “both” won’t count towards the tally in this poll.
Let Me Be the First to Vote
As my husband and I were trying to decide, we both agree that in our opinion, we would choose knowledge over gear if we had to make a choice.
In the interest of not influencing any of your answers, I won’t be telling you why we voted that way. However, it’s my hope that some of the people who take the time to cast their vote will elaborate on why they voted a particular way.
So, we’re starting the poll off with 2 votes for knowledge, 0 votes for gear. If you want to weigh in, be sure to leave a comment in the box below and feel free to tell us all why you voted that way.
