Does anyone besides me have preparations for natural or man made disaster?? Yes? No? Kinda? What are your thoughts. I'm not a Prepper but I believe in being prepared. My mindset is more in line with a survivalist. I feel that my greatest asset is my mind. Living in a small town, I am surrounded by several widows and elderly couples. My daughter & son-in-law live with my wife & I. There is always enough food in the house to get us by for a couple weeks or so. A couple years ago, the Lord put it on my heart to better prepare for my family and neighbors if an emergency happened. I don't think that I could sit down to a meal knowing that my elderly neighbors were hungry. Every situation is different so we can only plan for some and figure out the rest if/when it happens. I built an outdoor pantry that sits in my carport, shaded from the summer sun. The inside dimensions are 4'X6' and 7 1/2' high. It is insulated top, bottom & sides and has an electric heater set at 45 degrees. It is stocked with enough water, dry goods and canned goods to supply the entire neighborhood for at least 30 days. It also has all of my hunting and camping supplies as well as a good supply of LP Gas (1# & 20# bottles). Worst case, I could move the perishables to the basement and move myself into my travel trailer. It is self contained and all it needs is bottled water and LP Gas. I have a 6KW (220 volt) generator and a 1KW (115 volt) generator. I keep about 10 gallon of gasoline on hand at all times. This past summer, we had a wind storm that took the electric down for about 10 hours. I had wired the workshop (220 volt) so I could turn off the Main Breaker and back-feed the entire house with the 6KW generator. My furnace is natural gas so all I need for heat is 115 volts for the Control Unit & the Blower. I have located a couple fresh water sources within a half mile or so from our house. I don't sit in fear of an TEOTWAWKI but am realistic enough to know that things happen and reasonable preparations are good. Are there like-minded folks on here or am I a little crazy. What are your thoughts.
