I live in the upper midwest. It's a fairly rural area, small rural town.Why don't preppers flee from congested areas of our country?
When my sister in law comes to visit she has to have the radio playing and a night light on in order to sleep. Otherwise it is too dark and quiet. She lives in the big city in California.Preppers dont flee congested area's because when it comes down to it, most people are afraid of the dark. When I do go to the city to visit, I feel like Im in a warzone, the sensory input is insane. Dogs barking everywhere, sirens, traffic, everyone has their tv on full blast.
YES. But "preppers" think they are ab-normalcy bias, but reality is they are normalcy bias. The single greatest subject to push preppers button is, "tell them that nonmatter how well prepared they are, their greatest risk exposure is their physical location".Is the success or failure of preppers in a SHTF situation already determined, depending on where one lives?
This past spring my wife and I built a big box, 20 by 20 by 16 inches deep. “I’m going to try growing some food this year.” Used up quite a pile of old 2x8s. We bought a pickup full of plants; squash, zucchini, melons, cucumbers, pumpkins, all kinds of stuff. Then I ordered 6 yards of “prepared dairy” soil. Cow poop already mixed in. Cow poop is supposed to be good for growing stuff, I thought.I am strongly considering adding some raised bed garden boxes next year and trying my hand at growing some food.
Maybe, maybe not. If Yellowstone erupts, then the answer is "yes" for everyone within several hundred miles and "probably" for everyone else. If it's a plague like the Black Death, then no--where you live will not insulate you from the danger. If it's a civilizational collapse, where you live will not be a guarantee of anything but will go a long way to determining whether you survive.Is the success or failure of preppers in a SHTF situation already determined, depending on where one lives?
You definitely know a different bunch of city folk than I do.They are likely to starve, but if you know the SW Desert, there's pound for pound more protein running around then Ive ever seen out east.

When they come to visit us, they're scared when they have to walk up the driveway in the dark to their car. When my Father in Law came to visit, a snake crawled into the house through an open doorway, he grabbed his stuff and left that day, lol.
