    People have a right to think as preppers we are wrong. I wish them the best. Many of them do not have a clue that what some call prepping now was a way of life for many for a long time. When the lights go out, when the storm comes. I want our life to go on pretty much uninterrupted. Storm shut power down here for a week . We will still eat, still have our morning pot of coffee, still shower . If snowed in for a week we will not go without of suffer, we will have an adventure.
    As I have said before, the sign on our roof will not say help us. It will say help them with and arrow pointing towards town, we got this. One new years when major storm close roads people stranded in the ditches along High way we went out with large Farm tractors and picked people up, took them to local tavern that we called to stay open. Prepare the equipment was plugged in ready to go. When we got a call someone had not made it home we went out and found all kind of people stuck.

    My concern is about the people who think that we are "crazy" or "paranoid."
    Some may argue we should fend for ourselves and screw the people who doubted us but the 1% of us is not enough.

    I have binged watched "Prepper Network's" youtube videos, which are of the national geographic preppers show and the netflix deep earth bunker show. In the comments many people say stuff like:

    Willow DaLah
    "Why are they preparing for a specific disaster?
    Shouldn’t you prepare for ALL disasters? Or just pick one that’s pretty much covering most of them."

    and


    branden8045 theultramangofighter
    "The family preppers i think
    Are mentally and emotionaly sick
    They need to take there kids away
    His wife ligit gives it all away"


    Many other negative comments make good points (like the first comment), and some (like the second comment) are just slander

    How can we deal with this? Very important.

    I'm sure Noah faced criticism for building his Ark. I'm certain those critics wish they had built one too.
    Romans 10:9 KJV
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    It's also their right to forget their grandparents were preppers. It's just Gram and Gramps weren't called preppers back then.
    I try not to make plans much. The word 'premeditated' would get tossed around in court.

    Right after I hit send on the last post , went in to check on bacon that had been started it was almost ready. Pot of coffee was ready. Then darkness power went out. Quick look out farm yard lights about mile away out also. 10 year old Grandson , I have the Flash light, grandpa lets get the fire going. Wife on cell phone call check on Grandma. Yes hers is out also 3 miles away. She good for now. Pan was hot bacon done. Wife saves the coffee puts it in a canter to keep it hot. Fire up and going quickly. Decide if the estimate is under two hours not to start generator. Sit back and enjoy pound of bacon and coffee. Power company says about 1 hour Large outage, equipment issues.
    Went over again with Grandson how to start the wood burn the right way, he talked me through the steps as it should be. So it seems the plan works.

    if you're hearing this stuff first hand - face-to-face >>>> you're doing something REALLY REALLY wrong - OPSEC is and should always be your first concern - it's part of security and without that don't even bother prepping ....

    if it's just a mattter of seeing crap comments in regard prepping - grow a pair and ignore it >>>> two things a prepper needs is confidence in their decisions and skin thick enough to bounce .22s off of - come serious SHTF time you'll be making decisions that's be both harder than hell and most likely fatal to some ....

    In an interview and in his Movie "Collapse"... Michael Ruppert made this statement

    "When the Titanic is about to sink, these are the 3 types of people:

    -“Deer in the Headlights – I don’t know what to do”

    -“We get that the ship will sink, how do we make a lifeboat?”

    - “This is the Titanic, it won’t sink. I’m going back to the bar.”"

    he then asks the question "If you are a life boat builder, which group are you going to help?”

    So which group do you wan to belong to... the one that are preparing or the others

    Exactly.

    I don’t give a rats behind what others think. I keep doing what I do and when a disaster hits, I’m usually the one prepared.

    I sleep very well at night knowing I am prepared for what ever happens to come my way. My neighbors are not my concern till after SHTF. I have discussed my preparedness level with a very few, discreetly screened, people, and at that, they are limited as to the extent. You would like as many people as possible to be prepared, less expenditure of ammo after an event, but you can't save everyone and most won't listen anyway. The sheeple's indoctrination is extensive and thorough.
