    Being a survivalist is a necessity out here.
    Prepared with reason. This is the reason to be prepared when what was your own country takes from you.

    I agree. We have lots of dried deer, elk, moose, bison and all kinds of dried berries stored. The guns are for hunting food, not protection. But, they could serve a dual purpose if need be.

    ever see the science channel show, "what if we had no moon"?
    Life on earth would change drastically, much of the population would cease to exist if we had no moon, if not all of it.

    Being fat to start with is being prepared, right?
    I carry an extra 20 pounds with me all the time, how prepared is that?

    Most of these survivalists are paranoid, they're like the "end of the world" nutballs who keep telling us we have to be ready, but keep being wrong about the world ending. The last thing I'm going to worry about are a bunch of crazies running around like Chicken Little.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Definitely some carry it to extremes. We keep lots of food on hand, shop in bulk, shop the sales, etc. But if you don't rotate it, it goes bad and the money is wasted.
    Some things keep better than others, and some things are a PITA to prepare.
    We have almost no wheat, but lots of rice. Rice is ready to eat, just add water and seasonings and boil. Wheat takes too much preparation, and my stomach doesn't like it anyway. The more whole wheat I eat, the more toilet paper I use.... We do have some cans of white flour, I can handle that. TVP isn't much fun either, I would have to go vegetarian when the real meat runs out. Neighborhood dogs and cats would then be at risk.
    Buying from the survival store is expensive, you can get most of the same things in the grocery stores. I like Lipton Rice Sides, and dry soup mixes, to go with the rice. And dry beans last forever.
    We could easily go a few months on what we have in the basement....even longer if we had to, but it wouldn't be fun.
