    I know far more people whose attitude is, "I''ll just come to your place", than, "I need to make sure I can take care of myself." Fact is, probably 90% of the people who have actually had the wherewithal to contemplate the future, depending on someone else is their primary goal. Either a prepper (either by association or by force), family & friends, Uncle Sam etc. Of the other 10%, most will probably buy a pre-made kit of supplies online, stash it away and let it rot away. Once needed, they will realize their 'stash' is no longer usable, and become part of the 90%.

    Not very many.
    To see this for real, simply be in Florida when a hurricane is coming. Two days before predicted landfall the grocery store shelves have been stripped completely clean, like a wheat field that got hit by locusts.
    Water and gasoline is non existent. Home Depot and Lowes are out of basics like generators and gas cans.

    EVEN THOUGH this is Florida, and we get a number of hurricanes and tropical storms EVERY YEAR!!

    There are not many "preppers" here, and if there are not many here, in HURRICANE CENTRAL, there won't be many anywhere else.

    Hmmm.
    To be absolutely sure before I commit myself, I'd have to see it first.

    My guess is less that 1% of Americans are active preppers. Yeah, some may have the basics covered for things like floods, blizzards etc. But not for an extended grid-down people-are-dying-in-the-streets event.
    Yes I did mean thinks. Sometimes this ducking autocorrect has a mind of its own.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Need to get started at some point.

    Can't think of anyone I'm aware of locally that will last more then a few days. This would be during summer, winter time even less. So less then one percent, maybe.

    If we were to use the folks I know as the true group, . . .

    We're hovering at 1% and maybe even less.

    One family for sure I know has his stuff together, . . . another family does a lot of canning, so they're a "maybe", . . . but he's a wallflower wimp when it comes to protection / weaponry / and just plain old fashioned grit.

    Probably more that I don't know about, . . . but not many from some of the conversations I have had with folks.

    "Nahh, . . . ain't nothing like that gonna happen here", . . . seems to be the attitude, . . . and besides, when the big stores close, . . . there is still Dollar General, . . . yeah , . . . right.

    May God bless,

    I am probably more prepared than 99.9999999%. With food, ammo, meds and BOL, but I still feel like I am not prepared enough.
