I would guess that I would be called more a prepper by many on this site than a survivalist. I stockpile food and other supplies to the best of my financial ability. I do own firearms, as well as other tools to help in a "survival" situation. I am not a hardcore live off the land in the woods type at all but we do raise and store as much of our own food as we can. We are going to add cows and chickens in the spring.
I don't hate the government, but I have serious doubts about its ability to manage the country. I don't necessarily want to be alone or with my "own kind" but I also don't wish to be surrounded by people who will see my as their lunch ticket if things do go badly. I do not believe the end of the world is imminent. Rather I see the economy being the issue, based on unemployment and costs of energy. I prefer the title of stockpiler over hoarder, because what I am doing is NOT shorting anyone else or denying them the ability to stockpile themselves. I am not delusional, a crackpot, or a misfit of society. Only my family knows of my wife and my plans for stockpiling and they have been told clearly if they wish to come here to be with us they bette not blab about what we are doing or none of us will survive.
My parents were depession era people and my plans for stockpiling are born out of listening to them talk about shortages and hardships borne out of that.
