Are you a 'Prepper"?

Asked by majorrich (11926 points ) November 27th, 2012

I have been watching a program on Television about people going to extreme lengths to prepare for disasters of various kinds. They stash away insane amounts of non-perishable foods, water, weapons and other preparations to wait out or escape an apocalyptic disintegration of or society as we know it now. I have found myself stashing away a little extra ammunition because I see rapid escalation of pricing and the possibility of government limitation of my ability to protect myself and my family. We have always had a pretty full pantry, but are not going bananas like these people. So I consider myself Aware, but not necessarily a Prepper. As an Eagle Scout, I can teach and survive a number of scenarios so my level of alarm doesn’t approach these folks.
