Have you watched Doomsday Preppers? Man, those people are crazy!
Weve got this neighbor down the street whos prepping for the end of the world. What a weirdo!
Weve all heard these comments (or similar ones). As for the wife and me, when friends, delivery men, in-laws, out-laws, offspring, or third cousins (who only show when they need something) come by the house, we dont want them thinking were crazier than we are. Most importantly, we dont want them knowing were prepping. For obvious security reasons, we dont want those cousins to be the first at our doorstep when SHTF. So, how do we prepare without looking the part?
The wife and I are blessed to live in a good home on a remote farm in eastern Tennessee with plenty of resources at hand good garden space, open fields in front, timber around, plenty of storage space, and a good defensible arrangement. Were fortunate to keep most of our food stored in sheds and have a dry, cool basement to store food, ammo, medicine, and whatever else we need. Everything is stored in dusty old boxes and bags, clearly marked for what is NOT in them. When asked by our children why our milk is powdered or why their Mom makes her own washing detergent, we convincingly (and truthfully) respond that it saves lots of money.

That is a very hard question that every person has to ask of them self, even the folks who have served in uniform have to ask this question [not every person who served, can pull a trigger on a another person]. But when you & your family are faced with imminent danger you’ll do what ever it takes to keep yourself & them safe.
Tree rat, I've got plenty of recipes for.
And grow the spices in the garden.
Yep. GSP, Jr. knew.
Bumping for later!
One thing I have never heard of in the context of prepping is devotionals.
What? That God stuff?! Nobody has time for God in the middle of SHTF!!
That spoon works pretty good for keeping those pesky grandkids on the straight and narrow, too.
I've got printed and memorized Word of God to go with me.
The number one rule of preparedness, is to not talk about your preparedness...(i.e.: details)
Kinda like “Fight Club”...
Distance learning, we call it....
That goes without saying.
M4L, without looking active
Yeah, I was stepping back a little bit away from the lightning bolt that was about to tickle you...hehehe

Some to swap, maybe, if not for free?
Speak for yourself. You don’t know what individuals do.
lets hope that God floods this country with HIS grace, or a good man gets elected, before we have to become rambos....
