    would love one of these down under..... a great way to network and build upon expertise...alltho, down here, preppers and survivalists are thought of as being a little out there, tin foil hatters and doomsdayers.

    Oh well, there loss when it all goes belly up...

    Hobes, we're thought of the same way, until a hurricane / record snowfall / insert any natural disaster .
    Someday I'm going to pull my life together. But that day is not today. Today I'm driving a stolen police car.

    Kick, its funny... even my darling wife of 24 years thinks I am a little strange for stocking up on food and stuff, except for when she runs out in the kitchen pantry, then it's HUN have you got any xyz? yes Hun in the shop....

    I do have a family that loves camping and going bush tho, my kids love it, we fish we hike, we eat weeds and look for other edibles. so all in all I do have a family unit understands, even if I still look like the nutter....

    Hobes,

    From what I've been able to find, and from direct observation, it doesn't matter what country you're in, those who prepare are usually viewed as a 'nutter' as you put it these days. Not until the feces impacts the mass air impeller do the majority revisit that lack of foresight. Even then, after a short period of time, they will forget the wolf just had lamb for lunch, and go back to grazing.

    I've noticed a significant difference between the younger generation and older generations, specifically, those who lived through the Great Depression (which, by all accounts, wasn't all that great). My grandparents wouldn't throw anything away, and, when they found something that was useful, would buy in bulk and store it. The younger generation, it seems, doesn't seem to see the wisdom in buying two rolls of toilet paper at once.

    So, you might see if there's a generational difference regarding preppers.

    While growing up, I spent a lot of time with my material grandparents. Pawpaw was born in 1886, and Granny was born in 1896. As such, they struggled through the Great Depression while raising a family, and while living on a small farm. They certainly didn't want to have to go through those kinds of shortages again. And, I think some of their attitudes and philosophies rubbed off on me.

    When they settled my part of Oklahoma one of the first things they did was plant fruit trees , it's amazing they keep them alive . A lot of the farms had orchards , an they all canned . Root cellars were a must an the homesteads had them . My mom as we grew up canned everything that was in season and those depression era ways carried over . The younger have lost a lot of that and if SHTF will pay a hard price .
