Only my immediate family knows my wife and I prep. I have made it clear to my kids to keep their mouths shut about the prepping if they expect to be able to survive with what we have on hand. I also have made it clear they need to bring EVERYTHING of prepping value when they come and leave EVERYTHING else behind because there won't be room for it. Also, the only ones that eat are those that work...
Prepping is the latest hot topic and TV and the print media will exploit that to sell time or papers and magazines. No matter how realistic or stupid their representation of it is.
There are two kinds of people, those that are prepared, and those that suffer.
