Prepper Mom/ Sports Mom…. Same Skill Set?

SKill SetI was rolling an idea around in my head today about how similar Prepping is to being a Sports Mom. Think about it… my kids are soccer players, but I’ve heard similar experiences from the mothers of Hockey, Baseball and Basketball players (and, of course, the supreme Sports moms have swimmers; all day meets, or Volleyball players; all day tournaments). If you can handle those grueling days… prepping should be a snap.

 

Take a look at this~

Equipment

Sports bags are packed with all necessary equipment! Shin guards, water bottle, uniform, snack, shoes, tape, and towel.

Bug Out bags are packed with all necessary equipment! Food, Water, Clothing, tools, matches and first aid kit.

Feeding

Sports moms can feed a hungry crowd of 15 teens and their parents on a soccer field at a moment’s notice.

Feeding

Prepper Moms can feed their family of 4 for 6 months under emergency conditions at a moment’s notice.

Feeding (part2)

Always has some sort of high energy snack food somewhere close by… either in her car or in her purse… for hungry kids.

Transportation

Has a vehicle that can carry several teens and their gear… as well as extra food…

Transportation

Big enough vehicle to bug out with family and gear…

Shoes

No way to spiked heels… ever try walking across a field in them? And you’d be kicked out of a gym for marring the floor.

Shoes

When the SHTF, we are leaving those prissy girls in spiked heels in our dust…

Orienteering

Finding a field, gym, pool, in the middle of nowhere, hours from home, even in the dark is child’s play!

Orienteering

Has no problems using a compass and a map, or GPS to find any location or meeting place.

Organization

3 kids have to be on different fields in different cities at the same time? No problem.

Getting 3 kids from 3 different places in different cities to one safe location? No problem.

I guess what I’m saying is…. don’t be daunted by the idea of prepping… if you have active kids, you probably already have the skill set.            

Just take what you know, and adjust it to suit prepping needs.
