Always the lowest price!

My folks spent thousands of dollars a year to send me to prep school - so I guess that makes me a preppie.

For just forty bucks, I can be a prepper:

Was $68!

Probably beats my meager rations of potted meat, Vienna sausages, pouches of tuna, and crackers.

Wouldn't you like to be a prepper, too?

Those extreme preppers really worry me. Surviving a natural disaster is one thing. A Zombie Apocalypse or Jericho type civil war is something completely different. It might make great TV, but I don't see it happening.

It might be a natural disaster or it might very well be a financial disaster but the Boy Scouts were right. Be prepared.

RPM - The Zombie thing actually is starting to give me tired head. But, it seems to be effective marketing, even if I don't totally understand it. Haven't seen Jericho, so I don't feel qualified to discuss it, but generally, I don't think that serious civil unrest is that remote. I hope I'm wrong.

Toddster - Lord Baden-Powell had the right idea. I'm not as knowledgeable about the prep/survival as you, but I try to follow some of the discussion. I suppose it's easy enough to cover the food/water bases in the short term. In the longer term, I keep considering the Achilles' heel of communication and fuel/transportation in the event of full infrastructure disruption.

Maybe I should dust off the old 23-channel (or get a 2/10 meter rig), and buy a horse?

Or, I could buy a firearm, huh?

WHAT? You must immediately Netflix the entire series. That was a great show that lasted 2 seasons on CBS. Small Kansas town survives nuclear attack by unknown enemy. Civil unrest, floods of strangers from big cities showing up, having to turn into MacGuyver because all the electronics are fried by EMP. Luckily, it's Kansas and everybody has an old farm truck.

I won't let too much slip, but Texas winds up kicking some serious butt when it's all said and done.
