    Wherever won't get me hit.
    Salty, my old buddy! Always good to see you back.

    One suggestion my good man;

    I think that the term you used, "Harshes my Mellow" would be a bit more catchy if you change it to, "Marshes my Mellow".

    Get it, marshes my mellow? Marsh-Mellow? Kinda punny don't you think?

    I have zero interest in reading through anger-laced political diatribes, I don't care which side they are on.

    Hate busts my groove, it harshes my mellow, and there are other places online I can go so that's where I have been.

    I suspect it has a lot to do with what a person is prepping for. If you are driven by a potential economic collapse the economy and stock market has been doing better so there is less pressure to prepare. If you are driven by an attack (emp, biological, terrorist) or civil unrest the pressure hasn't changed so prepping still holds strong value. But many people who were prepping hard for months or years are approaching what they conceder a reasonably safe level of preparedness and now focus more on maintaining than increasing their preps. That's the point I'm at now.

    I'll still add preps like the small chicken house I recently put in but I put it in more for the eggs and hobby value than as a prep.

    I've been at the present readiness goal for sometime now. In fact, with a pending move in the next few months, I'm reigning in the levels of dry goods. Once we're up in the real south, I'll be taking 'preps' in a new and better direction to include growing, canning and maybe even chickens and bees. This past year, I was stocking up on precious metals (brass, copper, lead) in anticipation of a Hillary win but that's no longer a concern.

    I figure you are watching for signs of trouble. Good idea.

    Sorry, I am still here.

    But yes I do see a down turn in activity.

    I have been at the prepping so long, little more is needed.

    I just add more food for the most part.

    SHTF does not depend on who is president.

    Its true, living in one of the worst of the biggest cities in America, a sign of political strife is a sign of setting sail. There were some times around election night and the weekend after I actually put our home in ocean ready mode. (that doesn't take long I generally keep it that way). Still I'm a political hound and I live in SF so rarely do I get to blast my right wing views.

    It never stops, but prepping is more than buying Spam and shitonashingle...its gaining knowledge too

    I think serious preppers are still doing their things and wannabes and betas who bought into it reactively are stopping because they think Trump is the antidote

    It is good to regen your headspace - some of yall FOGs get too caught up in the doom n gloom/geopol shitstorms and get all crazy

    I am prepping, in fact I'm prepping hard. This is the time to buy, cause preps will be cheaper than when a Democrat is in power. The next president that will take the white house will be likely a democrap. I'm buying all the guns and ammo as much as I could. Hopefully economy will be fantastic so I can spend more on things I won't be able to get after 8 years.
