I liberated this idea from another thread. No one like to admit the mistakes they have made in their prepping, yet mistakes are a natural part of the learning process. Rather than make all the mistakes individually, I am wondering if people wouldn't mind posting their own mistakes in hopes we can all learn from them. So, what is your biggest mistake (or two or three) you made in prepping? As for me, my biggest mistake was starting prepping too late. I should have been more active years ago. I feel it will take at least 2 more years to be marginally ready for a complete long-term collapse. Do I have that much time? Do you?
