I’ve heard this one the most:
51) I’d rather just die than live if that happened.
There are more than 3 Million Preppers in the U.S.
There is no accurate means of measuring, as there are various degrees of “prepping”.
Mormons - 7 years of food.
The non-extreme variety, that don’t have multiple rooms of supplies and gear.
But, could get by for a while, before “bugging out” became necessary.
You try to tell people that the hull is thinnest at the stern but they insist on going to the bow...
Don't these people understand that guns/ammo top most prepper lists?
rice and beans give me gas.
1, 5, 6 and 29 are what I hear the most often, followed by 14, 24, 27, 36, 48 and 49.
You either prepare and stand on your own beholden to no one or you become dependent on others to provide your basic needs and become thierserf. Me I dont want to be beholden to anyone for providing what is needed for me and mine. I certainly dont want to have to kiss some gubberment third class bureaucratic to try and coax some help from them, I dont want some jack booted thug herding me in line and telling me where to stand, sit, eat or sleep. And last but not least I dont want to be herded in with a bunch of zombies and have to worry about not only trying to get basic necessities but having to fight to keep what I manage to get.
Now anyone thinking that prepping is foolish ask you whats easier telling your children and loved ones why you prepared or explaining to them why you didnt?
But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8
But then someone has to stand on the bridge waiting for FEMA to bring them a bottle of water, an MRE and a warm blanket so as to provide the Network Anchors their background Money Shot. I wonder how that will workout for them?
Face it weve kicked the financial can so far down the road that we are running out of road and the can which was once the size of a soda can is now the size of an oil drum (Try kicking that!)
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
15, 19, and 36 are my excuses. My husband is in seminary right now so we can’t afford to buy a lot of excess food. We are moving frequently for the next few years so moving a lot of food would be a pain. Currently we are in a tiny apartment with no storage.
36—the whole relatives thing? My dad is a prepper and he has specifically invited me and hubby to join him in the event of a crisis.
I do believe something big is around the corner—but my husband and I have no other option now than to rely on God’s good grace.
How about these comments
No matter what your age or sex.
My excuse is, “51. Aliens raped me. I’m too depressed.”
36 is what I hear most, from my relatives and adult step-children. Trying to adequately prepare for 4 people is hard enough. Harder still when that number balloons to 13-20.
I can say I have the stones to turn family away, but I don’t think I actually will.
Time to scrimp, save, and stockpile some more to take care of the deadbeats in my own family. Such is the duty of the paterfamilias, I suppose.
