I have been prepping for years. But, it's not just for myself. I have a number of relatives and close friends who do not see the need to do this. They feel that they will always have electricity, that the stores will always be full of food and other necessities. So, they think like Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?
So, in the event that it becomes necessary to help some of my family along, I'm trying to get prepared to do just that!
Thanks for your post; it's is very informative.
