Selco: This is concerning to those of us who live in rural/”frontier” towns—-what do WE do when a bunch of “preppers” show up, thinking to join us? We don’t know them, they’ve just come from a city, and though they say the right things and are sporting bug-out bags, we still aren’t looking for folks to join us.
The resources around us, we see as “ours”. We need them for us who live here, we’ve worked to produce and preserve them. We know each other well, and have our plans too. We aren’t going anywhere, as we have what we need right here. But we don’t have enough to give away to hordes from the cities. Unfortunately THEIR scarce resources now become OUR scarce resources too, and we’ll be fighting other preppers for them. This sounds AWFUL.
