    What Are YOU Preparing For?



    What future event are you (predominantly) prepping for? Are you preparing for just about any SHTF situation?

    Are you more focused on preparing for the grid going down? Some sort of politically motivated civil unrest?

    The apocalypse? Natural disasters? Why? Why not?

    The most likely are weather related events such as severe snow storms. That was fairly easy. Working on long term tough economic times, emp and so on. Lots to do on the long term stuff.

    Regional natural disasters, grid down, civil unrest, food rationing/shortage, economic issues.

    And snipers of course !

    When I first started prepping, I was really just preparing for a rainy day. I wanted to make sure the pantry was always full.

    Later on, following Hurricane Katrina, I started getting more serious about prepping for weather emergencies.

    The last year though, I have begun to be more concerned about social unrest and what could happen when people decide they have had enough...

    If you live in Texas a big problem was the flood of street gangs that hit Texas from NOLA. Very violent individuals that will start a gun fight over a wrong look.

    I keep having recurring nightmares that the angry godless commie democrats will try to come kill old retired cops. Thats why our prepping is heavily dependent on good shooting irons and plenty of ammo. Few cans of Beanie Weenies..Sardines etc.

    I was actually in Mississippi (out in the country) for a few years when Katrina hit. Even though I was a long way from the coast (near Water Valley, MS) we received massive damage and extended power outages from the storm. A lot of people who had evacuated to our area, ended up having to go further north, up to Memphis. In some situations, I was reminded of the goodness of people coming together in an emergency. In other situations I was horrified by how quickly people resort to looting and destroying each other. It was definitely eye opening for me...

    My wife is a native Mississippian. Grad of Ole Miss. If you lived in Mississippi you either rooted for M U or M State. What say you?
