Oh, no, preppers are still nuts. For thinking any amount of "prepping" is enough to live out an actual apocalypse.
Sorry y'all. You're doomed too.

LOL Yeah, I feel you.
Even now, when people are scrambling to buy toilet paper, I'm at the local TSC buying seeds.
Emptying the freezer right now, canning meat.
Which really, is a normal thing anyway, this time of year.
Oh, and working on starting some apple seeds, thanks to a kind hearted member of this site.

Seems all my life while living the prepper lifestyle and while nobody had a clue I was a "crazy prepper"
Whenever the subject would come up in general everyone talked about how crazy "those people" were.
In my own mind I knew what I was doing was right for me & my family it still hurt knowing that so many people were not prepared for the slightest
upset in life.
Now while everyone is scrambling for basic staples and toilet paper I am sitting comfortably at home just weeding the garden and building a new tool shed.
I quit feeling sorry for the general population long ago and it takes a lot of control not to say "I told ya so"!

Unless you also own a rice field or wheat field you are never quite self sufficient. I guess you can live off tubers.. but anyway in most cases, nobody is really self sufficient. You will always depend on others for the most part.
