Here are the top 30 signs, should you ever be the subject of a nationwide manhunt, that you too will be considered a Crazy Prepper on the Loose:
1. Pantries are so mainstream you have food stashed in strange places in every room of the house.
2. You have enough toilet paper to get through a year of uncomfortable digestive upsets occurring with 6 people simultaneously Speaking of which, you possess at least 3 different ways to use the bathroom, only one of which is an actual bathroom.
3.Your kids know what OPSEC means at the age of 4.
4. You have topographical maps of your area plural.
5. When youre forced to interact with the others you feel like you are awkwardly censoring your true opinions
6. You think nothing of treating an injury or illness yourself because what if there was no doctor?

You missed out!
Grown kiddo came Sunday to get some of her stuff out of her old room and was headed to the trash with a box of paperbacks. I saved them for emergency reading but the tp idea is even better.
I’d already saved sonny boy’s beginner bow and arrows, just in case.
Yesterday, I saw a homemade sign on the corner that read, “Deport Obama”.
Congrats to you!
I just snagged me a handsome Farmer who hunts, complete with 160 acres, a tractor, a Bobcat and a deep, clean well.
Life Is Good...and Gettin’ Gooder, LOL! :)
No comment......OPSEC RULES!!
The UPS man is starting to ask questions.
You can can butter! Go to Backwoods Home magazine online, and see Jackie Clay’s blog on the site. I have her gardening/canning book.
My freezer is filled with butter, but what happens if power is lost and the generator is dry? ;)
Beef sales lately. Canned. Ground sausage sale. Canned. Butter sale, still need to go down to town for it... and more jars. Dehydrator is going, filled with the season’s first harvest of kale and spinach. Over a gallon of strawberries picked and ready to be made into jam.
We do need more toi-dy paper.... laughing...
Dried kale? I must mention that to my husband,he grew kale for the first time this year.
I am so relieved. Looking at the list, I have lots of stuff on the list but just not near enough to be crazy - yet..
Well, now we of course count the water heater and toilet tank. That ain’t zackly news to people in tornado alley. We also drain the lines in to gallon jars as soon as the electric shuts off.
We also have 25 gallons of bottled water. About 3000 gallons in a swimming pool with 4000 gallon capacity, and 300 gallons in rain barrels which we use to water the garden. Have several water filtration systems and extra filters to use.
All in addition to our well. We have the ability to use a generator to run the pump, and if all else fails a rocket bucket for manual useage. Ten minutes away we have 20 acres and a creek.
A person can only live about 3 days with out water, so water is a biggee on our list of stuff to have on hand for emergencies.
You are gonna have to get busy transfering all your phone books and other stuff. LOL
Good on you. LOL
I don’t use much butter, though I have some stock piled. We only use about 4 boxes a year.
I have plenty of canned chickens and pork. We haven’t had beef sales in forever. Thinking about buying a beef quarter from the local farmers and processing plants. Used to do that all the time.
I haven’t tried canning bacon, but we do have some bacon jerky in stock along with regular jerky.
