  5. I knew better

    Coronavirus
    I knew better but convinced myself I was being crazy. I told myself nothing is going to happen. No one can even agree on what SHTF would be. So I quit prepping, quit thinking about it. Quit posting on here. I checked in every once in a while. posted on occasion but mostly just read what...

    Coronavirus
    Was reading a post on FB saying people with Costco & Sam's Club carts full of toilet paper and paper towels are stupid. And then the comments that followed were stupid - to a prepper. I showed a friend of mine one time a closet full of paper towels and toilet paper and all he could say was "Now...
  11. Will Coronavirus wake people up to prepping?

    Coronavirus

  18. thanks, coronavirus, for converting my wife

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A couple of months ago, it would have been hard for my wife to get behind prepping in a meaningful way. In the past she'd tolerated, but made jokes about me stacking up water in the basement. In terms of explicitly preparing for anything, I'd really only done guns (also just because I like guns...
