    For years we have been disparaged. Ridiculed and mocked. At best--we were regarded as slightly odd and somewhat comic eccentrics. Busily squirreling away canned goods and bottled water. The gist of "reality" TV shows such as Doomsday Preppers. Entertainment for the masses. At worst--we...
  2. Coronavirus
    There's a scary and alarming situation starting to develop. Lots of rumblings on social media about "hoarders" causing shortages in the stores. I suspect it's coming mostly from the unprepared and socialism-sympathizers out there. I expect this will soon be followed by demands "for the...

    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...

    Why do people get into prepping? Why do people decide to get into survivalism? I think it boils down to “Hope for the best but prepare for the worst”. The question that begs to be answered is “what is the the worst?”. What is the worst case situation that we should prepare for? For some...

  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    People used to see duck and cover infomercials on TV, people used to have home gardens, people used to talk to their neighbors, friends and family. What do we do now? We eat out at fast food places, we keep very little food at home, almost nobody has a garden, chicken yards are a thing of...

    I recently listed my home for sale by one of the more prestigious firms in my area figuring an easy sell in spite of the economy. Sixty days on the market and several showings but not one offer. I have planted raised beds, several varieties of dwarf fruit trees, several varieties of berries, a...

    Those who ridicule or refuse the theorem of survival and prepping are mentioned on this board from time to time. Neighbours, spouses, friends, families and even total strangers struggle to see the ideology and thinking behind “prepping” etc. So, let’s see how the facts and figures add up...

    I was on Amazon looking at the IOSAT. If shtf in the US for real and you are prepared for it, you should be prepared to be called a criminal for hording. Also I would expect people to call law enforcement on you, or try to take what they think is the law into thier own hands to take your preps...

    Sheep jump at the slightest noise. Sheep panic at the first sign of danger. Sheep are frightened, paranoid animals. Are YOU a sheep?

    So I couldn't sleep this morning because of all the noises that's going on outside. I woke up this morning and found lots of cars stuck in the driveways and parking lots trying to get out of the snow, but no luck... everyone who tried to get out was stuck where ever they were. I thought that...

    I know you all have wondered, or rather wanted to see how a soccer mom and imbecile kid would react to a SHTF event. Well the wait is over. push back soda and get a clean set of shorts. This is gonna be a laugh riot.
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    After years of trying to spread the word about preparedness and self reliance/survival in disaster situations, I've recently decided to just give up. Nearly everyone I talk to about these things either laughs, blows me off, etc. I've just decided to go "dark" with my preps. I keep it all to...

    Link: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/74_of_social_media_users_expect_cries_for_help_to.php So in the event of a natural disaster, 3/4 of people believe that their Facebook/MySpace/etc. cries for help should result in people on scene within an hour. Have they considered that in a...
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    First, I’d like to tender a sincere apology to Kev, the staff and the moderators as it would appear that my OP entitled “Thoughts on Sheeple and Walmart” has spawned a small scale war of “Sheeple” posts. THAT was not my intent! So if I’ve initiated enough mind-numbing drivel to last for a year I...
