‘Like Minded’

After spending a couple of days at the Survival Expo, I was reminded just how often the phrase ‘like minded’ was used in the preparedness circle.  Although preppers from around the globe use that phrase to describe those with a preparedness mindset, it can be one of the most loaded and vague phrases in the prepper community.

Whenever I hear ‘like minded’ I am reminded of a time when a family contacted me and wanted to meet up because they were happy to have found someone local and ‘like minded’.  Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity to connect with a possible valuable connection, I jumped at the chance…well, stepped cautiously would be more appropriate.
