Well that's what they call themselves in NY. A Prepper is someone preparing for the end. As in the end of civilization, whether thru natural disaster, nuclear and or terrorist attack, economic collapse,etc. They pack bags called " bug out bags" filled with dried food, batteries,etc. Seems a little dramatic but to each his own. Myself? Well I just have a few guns and a boatload of ammo. Are you a Prepper?

The only prepping that makes sense to me. Personally - I'd just end up eating the stuff late some night when I was hungry and hadn't been to the store, so why bother?

I simply stockpiled guns, so I can take food and water from the people who stockpiled them but don't believe in guns...

Exactly how does one prepare for a nuclear attack? You building a fall-out shelter? How long do you think you can remain in that fall-out shelter if you do have one.

Economic collapse? Buying precious metals will do you little good when you are hungry.

Gun powder does not taste that great. You might want to add some dried food and some sanitized water to that stash of fire power.

Natural disaster. Well seeing as I live in earthquake land, hell yes. I'm not that stupid. :D Oh, and by the way, before you say about CA, understand it is actually the pacific rim that is a concern. Also, some of you back east may want to do a little research about the New Madrid Fault. :D

I've always loved that quote.

I'm like Buoy---a few weapons and a few k rds of ammo. A couple week's worth of dried stuff and water, that's about it. Anything more than that and I'd probably be in over my head anyway. It'd start looking like some scene out of MadMax. But you can bet I wouldn't be the one on the back of no motorcycle......:D

Maybe I do need a generator.

I have a lawn chair, dark sunglasses, SPF2000 and gin and tonic.... Get in my swimsuit, apply SPF2000 liberally, put on sun glasses, sit in the chair in my back yard with a drink and wait for the bright flash and heat wave...... :cool:

I'm not but my girl is hilarious. We started watching walking dead and first words out of her mouth "we need more ammo". I thought she was kidding and then she came home with a few cases for each gun.

My lake has a few islands we have planned to hang out on haha. Plenty of fish/water to survive on. Only problem would be if zombies can swim. I mean current research shows that as a no but I don't see why they couldn't.

I really don't think they could. They would be a bit too porous, thus causing them to not float. I guess they could crawl across the bottom to get you. :confused:

IDK MAN. I take all my research from the walking dead and I am Legend. 2 contrasting thoughts on this lil boogers. In the walking dead they are obviously not built for water. I mean the one that fell in the well ripped in half from bloating. On the other hand the lil bastads in I am Legend were freaking nuts. I bet those guys could rip through water like a shark.

I'm thinking I should install some underwater lights in the MC just in case they can swim. Also maybe a mount for a 50 cal on the tower. Could man that thing from on top of the doghouse. Holding the ammo in the boat would also be a good substitution for ballast.

Come on man I'm not risking my life in a zombie apocalypse based on a 1943 movie. I mean they obviously had to portray them that way due to crappy special effects and no "real" zombies to play the part. What if they really are fast, can swim, and more importantly........can use a door knob. Heck who's to say they can't fire a weapon and then eat you? I'm freaking out here!

I think by living in California, that I/we prep a bit more just because of earthquakes. I have done a few things to make sure that if a big one hits that we can survive without the infrastructure being 100% intact for a week or 2. I always try to have 20 gallons of gas in gas cans and we have a few emergency food kits from Costco. For water, I have a bunch of filters to purify my parents' pool water, so I should be good there(they live a couple blocks away). I still need to buy a generator, as I have rigged my electrical panel up to be able to tie a generator into and I need to get some guns.

I think it is a decent start, but I do not consider myself a quack-job prepper like those on TV.

each paragraph is an individual text message in 23 minutes time:rolleyes:

The **** is going to hit the fan. Martial law will be here soon and the collapse of the economy before June. We are so screwed. You better get ammo while you can. IF you can.

I sent Jennifer an email and explained to her what is going to happen soon and to be ever vigilant and mindful of the kids. Soon the "kids" will be forced into His regime. All Bilerbergs in DC. We are screwed. They have funded every every Commie takeover in the last 100 years. It is already here. There is going to be a very bloody war.

Everythong is already in place. Why else would an impeachable president be in office? Hillary will get off for her treasonous acts. Kerry confirmed for secretary of state. He is a traitor and it against the constitution. But they are all Bilderbergs. I have called it for months!

I am terrified for the kids. That is why I contacted Jen. She doesn't pay attention. They are going to force vaccines on the kids at school without parents knowledge. They are asking them in school if your parents have guns, smoke? That means you are unfit and they are going to take them from you. Sad.when you are more scared of living than dying. That is where I am. I don't care about me, but the kids!

Martial Law will be here before June, probably in May. Then collapse of economy. I am selling everything. Garage sale March 1st

If you are old or useless, and cannot SERVE, you will be gassed. I will die from a bullet before I get gassed. Not going to a camp. Watch The Obama Deception full version. It is all already in place.

They are coming for the city folks first, then rural. Trying to prepare but only delaying the inevitable.

Paul Michael told Christopher he is to be the "keeper of the kids" pretty heavy burden. Google Muslim terrorists in Oklahoma. They are in Talihina.

My folks know. But my dad won't leave. He is going to defend his property. Teresa wants to leave but won't leave my folks.

Even looked at other countries to go to and there aren't really any options. Bills already in Congress to make Canada and Mexico a part of US. ONE WORLD ORDER, is here! It will like Nazi Germany. Only an all out uprising against the government or GoD will save us. IT WILL GET UGLY! IT WILL BE A BLOOD BATH But they have purchased enough ammo to wage a 7 year war against the US citizens. Tribulation. Many Biblical prophesies are cominmg to be.

Google FEMA camps with Jesse Ventura.check out the coffins that will hold 7 bodies. Also Jesse did one on HAARP, the government controlled weather station. It is all in place.

All the Presidents since Kennedy have been put in office. He was killed coz he wouldn't comply.

All the shooters, also have been Liberal Democrats. Fort Hood, James Holmes, and even the Columbine students were raised Liberal Dems. Although they were underage. And there is an obituary of Adam Lanza, the "shooter" at Newtown, died the day beforethe shooting. Many tributes for NEWTOWN on internet were posted days and one, a month before the shooting. Asking for money before it even happened.

Evidence that CIA drugged some to commit crime. Sihan Sirhan still has no recollection of shooting Robert Kennedy. And private citizens sued the CIA for unknowingly drugging them and they won a hundred grand each. Small price for ****ing with your head.

Both fathers (both computer scientists) of James Holmes and Adam Lanza were to testify within days against the banking system to bring down the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve and the BILDERBERGS, OWN, this country! Coincidence? Very doubtful!

According to veteran journalist Jim Tucker, Bilderberg elitists are furious over the “constant exposure” the secretive group is receiving in the European media, forcing members to consider the unprecedented step of holding the organization’s annual meeting in the United States for two years running.

The US corporate media routinely ignores what would normally be considered a sensational story – over 100 of the world’s most powerful people – including the likes of Eric Schmidt, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Herman van Rompuy, and the Queen of the Netherlands – meeting behind closed doors to discuss the future of the world.

As with a lot of us, the most common prepper activity is making sure the cooler is stocked and in the boat when we hit the water................. :D
