Jay, I think there are not many on this form that have many friends or family member that are preppers. I know that some of my and my wife’s family look at me like I am crazy. My wife’s brother buys food to store at my house because he does believes something is going to happen but doesn’t want us to tell his father or mother. He even purchase a 22lr rifle and has it stored in my house with the ammo, can you believe that? Well I do know there are three in my block that are what I call semi-preppers which is that they are armed and have maybe one to two months of food, but do not save water or have a filter.
So I am buying more filters because they all have pools so they can filter some water. I will help them since they will help secure the area.
But we are looked at as weird people so the best is to keep a low profile.
