I ordered some 55 gallon barrels to my parents houses (4 each) and some dehydrated food, only a 2 month supply.
They arrived yesterday, and now I am getting calls from them yelling at me and telling me I am an idiot and that nothing is going to happen, why am I like this and just because I think there will be hyperinflation (I never mention the other worse case scenarios, like camps and orchestrated downfall etc, thankfully) and such doesn't mean that it will happen, that they dont have room for it (forget the massive full basements they have that no one uses) or that I should be saving my money.
So as if it wasnt bad enough I had to order it to two locations because they are divorced (dont care about the divorce part, believe you me everyone and I mean everyone is better off for it) but I still had to order double the amount of supplies.
So now Im just here because well I spent a few grand on these things, money not a big deal I have enough of it, but still I guess I just needed some reassurance that did the right thing. I mean I am away from them now so if or when SHTF I just didnt want to worry about my parents having enough to eat or drink (I was going to order year supplies of food but thought that would be to much, considering they dont have any other preparedness plans).
Has anyone else had experience with this type of thing? Both getting the ear full and the trying to get family or those close to you who arent near where you are prepared in some sort of way?

I've been telling family and friends for the past year the the # is coming and prepare, they all think I'm nuts except for a few. The ones who think I'm nuts and doing nothing are the ones who get all their information from the MSM on TV...the ones who see what is coming don't watch TV but get their info from the internet...
I don't make a lot of money but have bought what is needed equipment wise (Bang Bang), I continue to stock up on food daily as the money comes in.
I made a dehydrator out of a old freezer and dehydrate food weekly to store.
I built a still for ethanol production out of a old beer keg, even obtained a TBI permit for it.
I'm in the process of building a "WOOD GAS GENERATOR" to run machinery such as electrical generators off of nothing but wood.
I've purchased Gas Masks, Radiation detectors, Radiation Dose Meters, Potassium Iodine tablets, 2 Night Vision scopes, IR lights, Wireless Spy cameras, Motion detectors, Alarms with trip wires, Plastic 55 gal. storage barrels, 500 lbs of dried corn, Hundreds of packages of vegetable seeds, ... Etc
It's coming, Don't let anyone tell you differently...prepare NOW..it's almost too late.
