how did you convince your spouse to be a prepper? (and not think you're nuts)
Post your interesting , amusing , and/or somber antecdotes here.
IE: I convinced her the money saved on growing food could be used for some killer pedicures.

I found her a place where she could sleep at night without having to the Boom-Boom-Boom of rap blasting cars going by the sirens of police at all hours. And the knowledge that she didn’t have to lock all the doors all of the time.
Everything else just fell into place after that.
No way, she likes Diet Sprite.
Is it safe?
Didn’t. Doesn’t know what all is in storage.
I didn't have to. He didn't trust Oboma either.
Tell her the rest of the country is doing it. People KNOW Oboma has driven the bus over the cliff. No one has to tell them. This nation, or the globe, has never been this broke, angry and divided.
Tell her to use a search engine. The links there for prepping will be endless.
A wise man hears of trouble coming and prepares for it, while the simpleton goes on his merry way and suffers the consequences.
My wife is from Tennessee. She gets it.
I started printing out some internet articles to read, and would leave them laying around where she would see the titles which pricked her interest, which lead to conversations, which lead to planning, which has lead to implementation......all from leaving articles laying around where she could see them. Now, there’s times she’s telling me we need to do more and do it faster.
Tell her today there at two types of people—preppies and preppers. The preppies will be extinct by 2014.
The recent riots and flash mobs, together with the east coast earthquake and Hurricane Irene, with Hurricane Katia in the wings did it for me. Along with an assurance from me that it didn’t need to be full-scale armageddon to justify dipping into the emergency food supplies and that a hurricane would qualify.
Still working on the gun and ammo part, though. She’s got a real issue with that. Funny thing is that she would be willing for me to get a bow and arrow. Why? Because she’s familiar with that from gym class in high school (back when they actually had bows and arrows in gym class in high school).
She’s OK with me going to the range, though, to shoot guns and with me taking NRA courses to learn about them. That’s a step in the right direction.
I made a solumn promise back in my naive days that I wouldn’t get a gun without her buy-in, and I’m going to live up to that promise, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try to change her mind.
I told my lovely that letting me take the kid away once a month for hockey tournaments gave her the opportunity to rest and not deal with two immature boys.
What link? Only thing I see is "me" and when I click it FreeRepublc forum comes up again.
Yeah, suspicious link eh what?
you’ll shoot your eye out!
That, and she lurks here...
One of the funniest lines in one of the funniest movies ever made!
Have her read “One Second After”.
I didn’t. He constantly complains about my small preps taking up room. Here’s hoping I never have to call him on it.
