Who did you tell? Think about it.

If the SHTF, who would remember about you and the possibility that you'd have tons of food?

If we blabbed....how can we undo that now?

My wife and my parents and they all think I'm nuts lol.
You think your "hoarding" becomes an amusing piece of conversation when your parents are entertaining? You think your uncles and some in-laws know about that now? :)

It's like that old commercial, you tell 3 friends and then they tell 3 friends, and then they tell 3 friends. I can't remember what the commercial was for, but I do remember that part of it.

I probably told too much family. I'm sure they told people about their nutty uncle, etc. Fortunately I recently moved really far away from all. So I get to be more discrete now.

One of my eight brothers, my wife, and our contacts all know about it. They also know that OPSEC requires silence. We have areas that can be told to hostage takers and "bad" people where they will be dealt with promptly and without question.

Everyone that needs to. But I have my pantry where only a fraction is. Come looking and you'll find cans of expired stuff and maybe a box of Mac and cheese. So if anyone told anyone else, they will be in a world of disappointment if they come here.

Just my wife right now. I'm just starting out and she thinks I'm a little crazy but she's still here with me (at least for now lol) but she sees that it something I'm becoming passionate about so she will support me like I do for her. However I do feel that if I told my parents they wouldn't hound me about as they prepped for y2k. But I'm sure glad I joined this forum. I've learned a lot over the last couple days so far!!

Some people at work know I have some extra water jugs for a "tornado". That's all they know. I told them it's rain water for the dogs. My best friend/man-friend and my son & his girlfriend. She doesn't know the extent. My brothers. One preps and the other is in Texas and I don't think he prepps.

Sargedog, I'm sorry you lost all your prepps. What a blow. I hope you can start your collection again. I'm sure it won't be the same, though. I got attached to my .22 LR and my shotgun. They even have names (wierd I know). But if my son and I were in a situation, I can say "When have you talked to Glen lately?" Glen is the .22LR. Or "Maybe we should talk to Matt" as in Marshall Matt Dillon on Gun Smoke. Silly, but a code that will alert either of us to be on allert.

Naming them isn't that weird. I do it too. I have the general which is a 50 year old 30-30 lever action that my grandpa,father, and I have all shot deer with. I think naming them just makes you more normal. :p

My family knows. You all know... which is why I'm currently pinpointing all your addresses to orchestrate a very large ... umm... I mean, I don't care who knows.

My wife knows. I also told my parents and now they are helping so if SHTF they have a place to go. They live in a big city, we live in the sticks.

My fiance knows I've started collecting water and stocking up on extra food items. As my future father-in-law also has a good sized emergency stash of food it's not a big deal to her.
