    If you have an unlimited amout of internet that you can use. Then check out YouTube. There are a lot of prepper channels and Survival channels.
    Thank you for the advise. I guess I just got my head wrapped up too much into the worse case scenario. It make sense to concern myself with the most likely things to happen first.

    You folks are not seriously telling a 15 yr old to go all drill sgt on the family!? Perhaps after talking things over with your family you could suggest such a drill.

    I thought they were telling me to ease my family into the idea by using excuses for prepping then start working together with them to get prepared. At least that is how I understood what they said.

    Yes, and that's most likely the only way you're gonna make it work. I had to do the same thing with the woman I'm married to. She is not a believer in SHTF but I took the approach of natural disasters. We live in tornado alley. That's where I started. I don't know where you live but a couple of good examples you can use (google the information if you need to) is Katrina and look what happened when Sandy hit New Jersey. Look for disasters that are common in your area. This will give you a starting point and you can add the govt provided info posted earlier.

    I was reading the comments about your flipping off the power breaker and tossing the family into a "training exercise".

    I respectfully ask EVERYONE to remember that they are talking to a person that is legally a child.

    That was uncalled for, especially towards a 17 year old.
