what we fear are leaches, including relatives. they will not lift a finger now, i have every confidence they would not in a SHTF scenario. We do have a small group of friends with worthwhile skills and would hope to hook up with a few others. Have tried approaching others (mostly family) with the need to prep for disasters and our middle daughter is finally starting to come around and buy more than 1 weeks worth of food at a time. will keep trying to educate!
