That would be well over 100 gallons of camping stove fuel per year and many awnings for surviving the end of the world. ;-)
"...when power was out after a storm...local disasters."
The authoress of the posted article included "...canning supplies, medical supplies...garden tools, hand tools, fishing equipment,..." She was writing about the end of the world.

I'm much more concerned about the one week outages that occur here after extreme weather events than the end of the world. But I can handle longer term disasters as well.

I don't pretend to know people's motivations. I do know that the more folks prepare for themselves, the more ammo I save. I damn sure don't sneer at them.
