On a clear morning in May, Ron Douglas left his home in exurban Denver, eased into his Toyota pickup truck and drove to a business meeting at a Starbucks. Douglas, a bearded bear of a man, ordered a venti double-chocolate-chip Frappuccino the girliest drink ever, he called it and then sat down to discuss the future of the growing survivalist industry.
The fact that Douglas not only told me where he lives but also invited me to visit him would be considered a huge mistake by many in the prepping world. Revealing your location runs the risk of compromising your Opsec, or operations security, an abbreviation coined by the military and adopted by survivalists. I dont even mention what state I live in, James Wesley Rawles, the editor of SurvivalBlog.com, a popular prepping Web site, told me. All Im at liberty to discuss, with consent of my wife, is that I live somewhere west of the Rockies.
For Rawles and others, its a matter of security. Revealing your location gives the Unprepared a road map to the stockpiles of the Prepared, in the event of Teotwawki. I dont want to wake up and find out that Im the go-to guy literally, Rawles says.
If civilization breaks down, Douglass house is definitely where you want to be. In his home office the de facto headquarters for Red Sheds six shareholders and two independent contractors he keeps not only his iPad and his MacBook but also a ham radio and a C.B. radio.

U R right, my bad.
