Drop us a line in the New Member Introduction section and let us get to know a bit about you.

EDIT: Just noticed your join date....
What have you been doing here for 1.5 years to then ask this question? :p
Let me welcome you to the group, so welcome from southern AZ. There are a lot of options when it comes to prepping. Some people prepare by purchasing extra food, etc. Some preppers realize they need to be able to protect themselves and their families, even extended families. But letting that extended family know you are prepared for a disaster could be a mistake. While living in the peoples republic of Illinois, I had only one extended family member (unmarried sister-in-law) to be worried about. I let her know if something really bad happened, to get to our house (30 minutes away). Much later, I found out she consider my preps to be near insanity and told many of her friends about my insanity. At an evening out to celebrate her birthday, one of her friends at the get together, put 2 and 2 together and realized I was the insane member of the family who was prepared. "You're the nutty one with all the food and stuff, aren't you? I know where I'm going if everything goes to hell," she blurted out.
"Did she tell you I collect firearms," was my retort.

Not to plug myself but, to plug myself, I wrote a book on that very concept. Poorman's Guide to Prepping. Basically, I lay out a "doomsday survival" 12-Step Program and the first three steps deal with building a Bug-Out Bag (BOB) and expanding the BOB, then everything else goes into build a Bug-In Kit and, self-reliance for your home. The first step is to start reading, talking to people, researching trends, your area and deciding what you are Preparing for... The Doomsday Scenario which I favor in writing, gives you everything you have as a threat from the Natural Disasters to Nuclear War, and lets you stop at what fits your needs.
