Third family, retreat group? That to me was pure fantasy. Unlike the first 2, they have really given up a traditional lifestyle.
Please define traditional lifestyle? I am not nearly as prepared as any of them but being a survivalist IS a way of life. We don’t just stock food, we currently live of our stores because it’s cheaper…being prepared is just a bonus. Same goes with being a hunter, the skills just happen to be applicable outside of today’s needs.
Not everyone wants to live in a city, I personally hate large cities. The general attitude and the way someone can treat their fellow man is sickening. Last time I visited a metro area my friendly wave was returned by obscene language and gestures...try dialing a wrong # to someone in the north eastern states.
Fantasy= "Noun: The faculty or activity of imagining things that are impossible or improbable.
Verb: Imagine the occurrence of; fantasize about."
I applaud them for having the forethought to put the group together but just because they have the resources to do so it does not make it a bad thing...and I am assuming you meant "fantasy" in a bad way by the way you used it? Perhaps fantasy is the wrong word, i dont think anybody serious about prepping is hoping for any bad situation.
