    I have a fairly simple attitude to family and prepping and this applies to ALL my family and friends.


    If you wont prep I have a crossbow and you WILL die. I pick who I consider family.


    This may seem harsh but if SHTF this country is too crowded to have any other attitude.

    In the right circumstances I'll take in some family and friends. The land in which I will
    live needs more then two people (my wife and I) to secure and grow on. However if they
    really aren't prepared to work, defend, and contribute then no.

    I plan for my daughter and my son an law and my grandson. My son an law is a great deer hunter and good with traping. As far as anyone else. They would have to bring something to the table. The sad thing is there are going to be more looking for a handout, than there will be preppers. There will be a fight. No doubt about it. They need what you got. I always believe you need to watch your family and friends more than you strangers. I know that I need to watch a stranger, and I learn a long time ago to really watch family and friends.

    You are either in or out . It is not a madder of turning anyone away they choose not to join in. Their call not yours.

    If you can not defend it, then your just holding it for the next owner.
    When will DHS come for you. They have declared us the enemy

    With almost half of the countries citizens getting gov. aid n a large potion of them will not or chose not to work it isn't a stretch to c them looting/stealing/battering or even killing to get what they need to survive. U don't believe in prepping for "any" emergency that may happen then u deserve to either scrounge for food or, saddly, die. My kids n grandkids r my life. They don't prep though I've preached to them multiple times. They r stocking some things bit not near what is nec.. will I turn them away, hell no. I'm prepping for them. Don't have lots of $ but have enough for them to make it for 6-9mo. I'm trying for 2yrs if I have the time left. I'm an old lady Soo its for them n have seeds n instructions for gardening. I couldn't live without my family nor would I want to. I truly believe that why im still here n the rest of my family is gone. So to answer you ? Hell yes I'd take them in n anyone else who tries to take what I did without to store for them will meet with a hot meal of lead. Just saying....

    I have very few friends, so if any came to me for help, I would help them. Immediate family too. I know that both my few friends and family would contribute, etc.

    I would help family members and their families, but my friends are all into prepping, so they shouldn't need help, but if they do, we already plan to have a swap and barter deal going on.

    It also depends on the situation. If there is a contagion, this could get dicey. I have helped my mom when she is sick, and I have gotten sick in the process of being her caregiver. For her, I would still help, but now I plan to go get her early on if the situation will allow for that.

    For me, family comes first. Friends have to hang on their own. It's a hard knocks world. Ant and the grasshopper....

    Would have to turn away. But if they could help planting or other skills would reconsider.
