You’re on Your Own, or are you?

Do you have to be on your own? A group may be inevitable, do you need to be in one? where would you fit in a group? I can ask more questions, but there is no need for that. Going solo as a prepper is difficult, to say the least. So, ask yourself if you’re on your own?
