In other words, make sure you have a batcopter in your bat cave, or else you're #*!$ed.
In all honesty, if you feel you need to hide your preparation activities from your neighbors, that is probably a good indication that you are A)
American, B) American or C) American. In any of these 3 scenarios, the best course of action in any disaster is clearly to horde all your own *#!$ and
turn your brothers away, because the more #*!$ they have, the less you have. You should also make sure you have emergency plans drawn up to raid other
peoples #*!$ incase yours runs out. They don't deserve it, and you do. That toddler that is dying of hunger/dehydration? #*!$ that #&!$. That's just
a ruse to get all your stuff, so the gubberment can regulate you after they put you all in camps.
Crazy talk. Establish networks of people who see the wisdom of being prepared. People who hoard their goods will be the first to die, no matter how
secretive they think they have been. Network with others who share your values and your sense of preparedness, and come up with contingency plans to
not only support each other, but those who can't support themselves.
If you think you are going to survive the apocalypse all by your lonesome because you were smart enough to horde a bunch of stuff, you will probably
be one of the first to die. People are social creatures, and every advancement we've ever made worth mentioning, we've done together. We've done a
lot of crappy stuff together as well, but you aren't going to solve it by yourself.

-Bring not so useful people in that are wise enough to commit (Not everyone has an obvious skill, but not everyone's character can be judged on their
-Resolve to become a community in a SHTF scenario, and help each other.
Hoarders = targets.
