The struggle is real. The threats are serious. The true threats are often unseen.

I don’t do many of these commentaries, not on this blog. About every six months or so. I try to keep things somewhat educational and productive but nearing a new year, I feel we could use a wake-up call.

I’m going to take my trucker genius and my prepper mindset and help you understand what’s going on with our supply chain disruptions and what we need to do about it.

In this article, I’m going to share my opinion. It’s an op-ed, not my regular type of post here on Next Step Survival but it is a survival topic. I’m not an expert but I feel like I’m just as Smaut as them folks with that label.

Expect to be enlightened!
