    No TV, no internet, shaving and brushing your teeth in the same canteen cup of water?
    Eating out of cans, outdoors?
    No hot showers?

    It builds character.
    I know I have done it.

    I consider myself a hardcore prepper, have been for a long time.

    About 5 years ago, a winter snow storm took out the electric for the whole

    town/area for three weeks, we went through that like a breeze.

    Without spending a lot of time here, food stocks for 5 years, guns and ammo

    for a lifetime, fuel 2 -5 years, unlimited wood for stoves.

    Unlimited water, 5 years of meds nitro purged and frozen.

    I thank my doctor brother for the meds.

    Most people I know around here (family and friends) would be considered a prepper by others, but it's just a way of life to us.

    I don't understand it, but it's epic.

    I try not to make plans much. The word 'premeditated' would get tossed around in court.

    A government EMP report I read maybe 5 years ago estimated that between 8 and 12% of Americans had sufficient food, shelter, and access to clean water for a 3 week emergency.
    Somewhere around 5% would be good for 3 months. These are probably people who can their food and live in a rural area who don't require a med to survive.

    The report estimated that between 1 and 2% were good for a year. This group was what the report considered "preppers".

    This doesn't mean that everyone else would starve or die from bad water. These numbers were for the people who already had access to what they needed were they lived; I'm assuming on their property. Many who don't have what they needed to survive would travel to areas where there is excess food such as crops or cows.

    I am also on a Mormon prepper board. The Mormons have as part of their doctrine food storage. So few of them are prepping that they have lowered the standard from a one year supply to a 3 month supply. It turns out that they are having trouble just trying to get people to adhere to the 3 months. Normalcy bias is something most of this country is afflicted with. That is true there too. I quit talking about it years ago to other people because they look at you like you are mentally ill for preparing.

    So I'm with the 1% or less figure.

    I know what's it's like to be the lone ranger. About twenty years ago as I talked about security, my friends and co-workers said that it was downright "paranoid" to carry knives or guns. Then Madison had a spate of nonsense sniper-like shootings. Suddenly I got questions like, "Hey, buddy, ol' pal, what's the best kind of cheap but functional concealed weapon I should be buying..."

    You know as well as I do that kind of idiot is going to be in an ER very soon with several toes blown off from not listening.

    Few but not relying on others for sustenance.

    As much as I admire independence, I don't think that America really looks up to men of singular distinction. I think that concept died more than 20 years ago, and now we are the "Can't we all get along" society.

    Then again, I was a member of a 'fraternity,' and I believe it actually helps younger male adults develop amid a class of "been there done that" older mentors. This is a fulfilling yet delicate balance to sustain. How do you become a tightly knit organization of all leaders and precious few Indians?

    Did you ever notice in the old Frankenstein movies that when the irate mob takes to the street there is an equal number of guys with torches to an equal number of guys with pitchforks?

    In all that anger, how did that mob organize this incredible balance?
